Anthemon - Call It Quits


After 10 years of existence — during which time the band released one demo, one EP and three full-length CDs — French dark metallers Anthemon have decided to call it a day.

At the time of the group's split, Anthemon was working on the material for the follow-up to 2005's "Kadavreski", entitled "Alois..."


However, Marc (bass) would like to introduce his new E-shop, Epiphora Productions:

http://www.epiphoraproductions.fr/

Epiphora Productions Eshop, at last, opens its doors!!! Its goal is to promote unsigned bands, underground labels and help them to sell their products (CD, Demo, Tape, T-Shirt, etc.). We can also help associations, promoters by selling gigs tickets.

At least one of the members is helping other bands...

I remember it was hard for me to find their CDs and when I asked around a popular response was "you mean Anathema".. oh well now i know where to get the CDs from.

Well, too bad, I actually liked this band... Now at least I'll be able to find their albums for cheap

@Herz: like (almost) all French bands, they're not famous, hence the lack of mourning

Well I had a feeling this was coming by the lack of updates and then their singer departing... I actually found Anthemon rather early by chance on one of those websites like 6-7 years ago that let you browse artists who'd posted an mp3 to download. Something like mp3.com used to be, and way before myspace. This was back when they had just released their EP "Talvi," and the track "Withered Smile" was up for download. The band had actually emailed me wondering where the world I'd found the song - let alone was playing it on my radio show in the US!

I also really liked their CD "Dystopia" which has a very unique dark feel to it, and hints at a style of progression that I don't know any one else who'd used it. Vocalist Loic was simply awesome on this CD. One of those bands that I knew would never be big but felt like a rare find... I at least will miss them (And will play that same track tonite on my radio show with Nathalie on vox! )

These guys had a song on one of the last MS compilations, All Is Cyclical, it was pretty good but unfortunately a while after hearing it I always forgot how it went and got them mixed up with Amethyste and Augury etc. Sad to see a good (I think) band break up but good that there will be more help for underground bands.

I'm surprised no one is complaining about "€20", that's ~$40 here which is in the average to high range...

It's 20€ (actually 30, as said on their site) for their whole discography - 3 albums and an EP - so it's quite cheap for us here. Albums are expensive in France anyway.

Bad news once again... Their stuff was quite good, for what I knew of it (the song Above Us from Dystopia is really great).

Actually, now that you mention, they also had a song on the second MS Compi called "Above Us". Pretty good song too.

Ah, well good news in the sense that the band's music is now available again... for FREE. Just go here and download "Dystopia" and "Kadaverski" for free, under the creative commons license. It seems they will release everything in their discography this way, but only these two albums seem to be available for download at this point. It's in 192 vbr, so good quality too
