Anubi - Biography

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.




Anubi has started in Summer of 1992, when guitarist Skro and drummer Renofer recorded more than ten minutes of psychedelic music at home. In 1993 vocalist Ptah (a.k.a. Lord Ominous - Martynas Meškauskas) joined the band and in a Full-moon of a March sky they recorded the first demo - 'Gods Pantheon'. The style of Anubi can be described as Mystical, Industrial, Occult, Dark, Doom, Psycho, Egyptian Black metal. During the next two weeks - eight new tracks like 'Mėnulio Paslaptis' ('The Secret Of The Moon'), 'Kraujo Orgija Gize' ('Blood Orgy Gize'), 'Tamsiausi Ritualai' ('Darkest Rituals') were recorded. Anubi describes their music as an attempt to 'impact the mind of the listener, to create the world which would be even darker than it is now.'

The second demo, 'Mastabos Dvelksmas' ('The Mastaba's Blow'), released in 1994, consisted of dramatic, archaic and gothic styled pieces. It had more mysticism, more power of darkness, and even more dramatism than before. Lyrics of this demo was written by Lord Ominous. Most matured pieces were released later in 'Mirties metafora' ('Metaphor Of Death'). After this album Lady Sleep (keyboards) joined the band and releases vinyl - 7'' EP 'Sutemus skambės' ('At Dusk will Chime') on Italian Danza Ipnotica Records. After followed the full length album 'Kai Pilnaties Akis Užmerks Mirtis' ('When The Death Close The Eyes Of The Full-moon') released on the same record label.

In September 2001, Anubi line-up has changed. Skro was replaced by Sadlave (guitars, bass, programming) and recorded the last recording - 'Sielų Pirklys' ('Merchant Of The Souls'). It consists of four tracks, and should have been released under "Danza Ipnotica" label (Italy). However, it was never released. A contract with another Italian label "Code 666" was signed; however, after the tragic death of Lord Ominous, it was canceled.

The band split up after the leader of the band Martynas Meskauskas (Lord Ominous) died in March 30, 2002. He never came back after going fishing with his cousin to lake Michigan.
