The "anonymos collective" is now "CEILOS"
As everything that surrounds us is subject to constant change, so are we.
Growing more and more unsatisfied with diverse groups acting under a similar name I decided to rethink what this project is about and find a new name for it.
Having deep roots in my first band "Verge Escapement" I took what was essential to it: "The Verge". Reflecting the aforementioned constant change and urge to create something exceptional, we keep trying to escape our secular shackles. CEILOS is this state between. It's the here and now.
Watch the video to the opening track "No Home" from my upcoming album "ITER".
One year ago we were rehearsing for the 20th anniversary show for Shadowpainter. Waiting for the singer to join us we decided to do some instrumental warm up, which led to the creation of the track "Resurrection". Listen to the very first rehearsal take on soundcloud:
Also there is quite some progress on the album production. Here ist the first draft on the track listing.
A1 - No Home
A2 - The Slave
A3 - I've been told
A4 - Behold
A5 - Work and Pray
A6 - Lakshmana Rheka
B1 - The Preacher
B2 - The Snake
B3 - RAM
B4 - Shesha
B5 - The Swan
B6 - Elephants dream
B7 - The Snake Reprise
I decided to do a little DIY CD-print to fund the production of my LP "ITER". As far as progress goes on the LP all songs are written and some of them already recorded. So I plan to do the remaining recording during fall and get everything mastered in spring. As you can maybe tell this isn't going to be some quick big cartel pop production. We throw this party all on our own, so we take our time.
Meanwhile you can pay us a coffee or two to keep us awake during our nights in the studio by buying our recent EP "TPILB" available now on compact disc and digital download through our bandcamp online shop.
It's entirely recorded live over the last half year or so and contains 5 songs. The Swan, The Bear and The Snake Reprise are early renditions of songs from the upcoming LP, Progression Timeout is an early 2013 b-side and So Fear was first featured on our first EP "o".
Have fun listening, we hope you enjoy it and to maybe see some of you at our concerts!

We are playing the Jam-Festival again this year. Check it out at jam-festival.net.
This was how the gang started: anonymos @ the Jam-Festival 2014
This was our gig at the Kupferschmiede. First gig with Sascha & Nico!
3 days left:
Former Guru Guru / Atlantis guitarist Dieter Bornschlegel will give you a sonic introduction to Krautrock followed by the new anonymos septet with their spacious audio-visual journey!
I recently did a remix on one of my older songs. This one was written in preparation for last years WG-Festival Gießen together with singer Anika and accompanied by Peter on clarinet.
When you like it, spread the word, so other people can enjoy it, too!
Finally here's a video of our last gig at Café Amélie!
Sharing is caring, so if you like the video the best way to show your appreciation is to share it with other people!
Thanks goes to our audience at Café Amélie that night and especially to Shader, who supported us.
Your next chance to hear us live is on June, 13th at Alte Kupferschmiedewith two new musicians joining the collective and a very special guest supporting us for the evening!
Seven days left until we will play at the Café Amélie again!
During our last show there we recorded some tracks. One of them was "So Fear". Written in 2013 as an electronic track heavily influenced by traditional arabic music it was one of the first tracks performed live by what would later become the anonymos quintet.
