Anachronaeon - As The Last Human Spot In Me Dies/The New Dawn

In Sweden there is a town named Vasteras and around 2001/2002 there was a band named Human Failure. After two demos the band decided to stop after playing their only live gig, as a opening act for Katatonia. The two remaining members Patrik and Andreas decided to go on as a studioband and named themselves Anachronaeon.
Their first recording was done in 2004 with the demo "As The Last Human Spot In Me Dies" and in 2005 with "The New Dawn". Both recordings are released by the Russian label Stygian Crypt in 2007.

Anachronaeon plays metal with a diversity of styles, raging from death to doom, from dark to progressive. Long duration of the songs and in mid paced. There are breaks to even slower parts but also some rapid ones. But they pay much attention to the melody in the tracks with some dark edges.

Vocals are sang clean but Patrik is doing some grunts too. He is also handling the guitars and he does it very well. Squeezing out melodic riffs and nice extended leads.

These two releases are interesting for progressive metal fans that like the dark doom and death edges.
