At this time the members of the band were: Roman Kusy (bass), Marek Misiak (guitar), Jerzy Misiak (drums) and Cezary Szczerbak (keyboards). In spring '96 the band was joined by playing the 12-string guitar Tomasz Rychlicki and the first true vocalist Dominika Owsik. This lineup gave its debut concert on 01.06.1996. The band appeared on a couple of concerts in the summer and won the first prize on "Jesienne Spotkania z Muzyka" in Sierpc in November. This encouraged them to make their first recordings what took place in February in "Radioaktywni" studio in Czestochowa.
The demo they recorded consisted of five tracks: "Tylko tam", "Sweet Fantasy", "Przebudzenie", "Sam", "Post Scriptum". The music they played then was mainly soft rock with notable progressive influences. After completing the recordings ANAMOR gave a few performances in music clubs in their home town Plock and gained a stable group of fans. Their songs made their way onto local radio stations. Sudden decision of Dominika Owsik in autumn 1997 to leave the band stopped its development but not for long fortunately - in November the band found a new vocalist, also female, Marta Glowacka. After several concerts and a couple of months of working on new material the band showed up on "Ogolnopolskie Konfrontacje Muzyczne GITARIADA '98" and won a prize again. At the turn of 1998 and 1999 the band recorded another demo - 7 songs: "Uliczny kochanek", "Na dnie", Dom na ziemi", "Bede sloncem", "Senna impresja", "Zabic czas", "Sposob na ciemnosc", "Niewidoma".
Their music became more mature, ambitious, with interesting arrangements albeit containing catchy melodies. In July 1999 ANAMOR gave an hour long performance during "VI Noc Symfoniczna" in Wagrowiec sharing the stage with ABRAXAS, QUIDAM and Colin Bass and receiving decent reviews. In autumn the same year the band experienced another change in the lineup - the keyboardist Cezary Szczerbak made his mind to leave and was soon replaced by Marcin Ozimek. This way crystallised the lineup which survived to this day. The band continued to perform on various occasions. In July 2000 the band turned up on "Noc Symfoniczna" again.
Shortly after, encouraged by success and acclaim, the band decided to record their first full album. Recording sessions took place in November 2001. In KLON studio in Sierpc ANAMOR recorded 10 songs 9 of which appeared on the debut album. The self produced album "Imaginacje" was issued in October 2003. -- www.progarchives.com Read more on Last.fm.
