They practiced in a small room with on the third floor of a shitty building next to a club that brought in shitty jam bands. This is where they clumsily put together songs, which had a lot of life in them, but due to the inability to maintain a steady practice schedule, they were usually sloppy. I forgot when exactly the date of the first show was, but it was a good start to a slow climb. They moved to Chicago shortly after. Dan Pozzie had a short stint in the band but left due to personal reasons.
They met their good buds in Lautrec and did some shows here and there with them as well. They found Kevin von Flotow to fill in on bass for a bit, but left after a while. Then Jeremy left due to financial and family troubles. So After a year of trial and tribulations they finally got a recording done.
This is where we stand now. There is another (one man) band called Enuma Elis. Enuma Elis history starts in 1999 in Galicia (Spain) when DFV aka Enlil almost by chance took a PC program for making music. The name of this application was Impulse Tracker 2.14. This tracker is based in mods and feeded by the already obsolete MS-Dos operative system. Boredom first and trying to improve oneself later, Enlil started to fight with that program to get the best from it. After experimenting and getting more involved, first songs came, most of them erased just for considering them as mere rehearsals and tests. First song came in october'99 named "I" for 2 simple reasons: this is the number 1 in roman system and also the first person in english.
Quite "rookie" song, it was in fact the first song ever made. After some time, the first demo-album came, selftitled. "Enuma Elis" the demo is a conceptual album about "Mind and dark thoughts" of few more than 1 hour of lenght. 2005 is the year of the next one, "Albor Bizarro". This CD is previous of "Enuma Elis" but some songs were made up. The official release should be 2001.
The main theme is the "Cycle of life" and songs have more variety in relation to genre, from atmospheric black to traditional melodic death to gothic to industrial metal. It is included here that first song "I" which have a definitely worst sound than the others, but it's just rare a piece of past odd to listen. Both "Enuma Elis" and "Albor Bizarro" could be mere rehearsals trying to find the path to choose and the definitive style. That's why they are maybe not so developed and polished, also taking in consideration that those were the years of learning how to manage with the program and the years of learning how to manage with making songs and finding a proper style. In 2006 "Obscura Epica" is made and probably the most polished until the date. Sound is still a bit crap as far as it sounds to computer, mostly electric guitars, but songs are better structured and thought.
Base is still Impulse Tracker 2.14 due to lazyness to work and learn other new music-maker programs. Main theme for "Obscura Epica" is "The night" and it's a mix of melancholy and epic sound through fast and calm passages, usually full of melody. 2010 will be the year of a new release called "Delirium Tremens", EP with old songs from the period of 1999-2001, 3 new ones, 2 new versions of old ones and 1 cover song, though I'm still deciding about it. Main influences of Enuma Elis: every kind of european metal, from melodic to extreme stuff, new age, 80's pop-rock and epic soundtracks. http://www.myspace.com/enumaelisband Enuma Elis - (2001) Albor Bizarro 01 - Latexos - (5:40) 02 - Ollos Que Ven Escuridade - (4;15) 03 - Albor - (3:49) 04 - Melancólico - (2:34) 05 - Execrado - (3:30) 06 - Pezas - (2:23) 07 - Tedeum - (5:20) 08 - Pó - (0:53) 09 - A Cinza Sobre A Terra - (5:06) 10 - O Escravo Do Santo Pecado - (3:24) Bonus Track 11 - I - (7:22) Total time - 44:16 Enuma Elis - (2003) Enuma Elis 01 - Firmamento I - (1:20) 02 - A Porta - (3:35) 03 - O Mistificador - (4:59) 04 - Inquedanzas No Tempo - (1:37) 05 - Hedra Sobre Esperanza - (7:24) 06 - Incurius - (4:23) 07 - O Pasado Vivirá (5:19) 08 - Eu Son A Ira E A Dor I - (5:26) 09 - Eu Son A Ira E A Dor II - (2:59) 10 - Océano De Sombras - (7:05) 11 - Ascese - (1:14) 12 - Paradoxo I - (3:18) 13 - Paradoxo II - (5:29) 14 - Paradoxo III - (0:48) 15 - Firmamento II - (1:28) Bonus Tracks 16 - Persian Starfall 2.0 (Scirocco cover) - (3:43) 17 - Her Dark Songs Of Sorrow (Aegis cover) - (3:34) 18 - Walking Down Through...
