Biography

Anek formed in 2004, with a starting line up made by Pete (vocals/guitar), his brother Jan (bass), and Dario (drums). Dave (guitar) joined the band lately, in 2006.
Since the early lives the band was always determinated to propose its own songs, showing good skills in composing tunes, counting on alternative-rock melodies but at the same time catching from the first listening.
In 2009 Anek released their first EP featuring 4 tracks, recorded at Fusix Studio in Turin.
From the EP they've extracted the single “Bella”, song inspired by The Twilight Saga, that aired on several local radio stations and was also featured on the American Clevver TV in one of their videos.
The song pleased very much the listeners and on YouTube lot of users began to use the song for they own videos about the saga.
It was also released an official videoclip that reached 75.000 views in few months bringing the band up to the 5th positions on the YouTube chart for the Most Viewed Italian Musicians for 2 weeks.
In 2010 there was a change of line up with Jan and Dario leaving the band and introducing Loris as new drummer.
The new team started immediately to write and arrange new tunes and during September 2011 they travelled to London to record 15 new songs scheduled to be featured on their first full lenght; anyway most of these songs are still unreleased cause of a choice of the band.
Meanwhile Anek didn’t stopped here and achieved small awards on several music websites, being introduced as “featured band” or “featured song”.

Lyrics

We'll Never Change

Written By: Anek

We liked to walk
We said that we would spent
Every moment togheter
We liked to dream
About every thing, every thought,
Every night, for ever

[Chorus]
Why you don't understand
Why I don't believe again
'Cause we will never change
Why you don't want to feel
Why I don't want to dream again
'Cause we will never change

I don't resist
You're light years away
We could be what we said
But now we exist
And we'll continue to pray
After what we have faced

[Repeat chorus]
We'll never change...

Today we will build a new day
Where every fear
Will disappear
When we'll fight for
Our new horizons
We start our time
To change everything...

[Repeat chorus]

Bella

Written By: Anek

It was late that night that I was running out
From my destiny
I was lost in darkness of an autumn day
And thought to eternity
And I was looking for, I was looking for
The right way to escape
From this prison inside me, that I leave behind me
As the memory of that crate

It's blind
It's blind
It's blind
My love for you

While the time, was flying away
From this fatality
One voice sayd to me, carry on go away!
From hell to reality
And the leaves and the stars
Are shining in the night
They guide me to the light
My heart and my mood at last found a peace
I need inside myself

It's blind
It's blind
It's blind
My love for you

I've finally opened my mind
This love will triumph over evil

It's blind...

Lady Of Fate

Written By: Anek

If you want me find me now
I’m still waiting for your call
I found no message on the wall
If you give me a chance to win
I want you under my skin
As a pure soul without sin

Oh oh oh oh
Lady
Oh oh oh oh
I believe
Oh oh oh oh
In fate

I love you more than anything
I will fight for you my queen
I wanna be your daring king
I feel I’m lost inside your eyes
I am ready to give my life
I don’t wanna say goodbye

If you were part of my life
I would have the strength to fight
Enjoying every moment of our time
If you ask me to call you now
I cry to the world your name out loud
There will always be ups and downs

Oh oh oh oh
Lady
Oh oh oh oh
I believe
Oh oh oh oh
In fate

I love you more than anything
I will fight for you my queen
I wanna be your daring king
I feel I’m lost inside your eyes
I am ready to give my life
I don’t wanna say goodbye

Fate, I believe in fate
I believe in fate
I believe, I believe
I believe in fate

Blow

Written By: Anek

I remember the days
when everything was good
everything was you and I
I try to don't think
about the time spent
laughing and joking together you and I

[chorus]
when I feel my heart explode
I just found my way to love
when I try to forget it all
you are knocking at my door

I remember when you
gave me the chance to hope in a future
without any lies
I try to believe
that it was justified defend your mistakes

[repeat chorus]

and I know
what you want from me
what you want from me
But we know
that we don't laugh anymore
we don't laugh like before

[repeat chorus]

After The Rain

Written By: Anek

You are what you are
your hate for me is so hard
you are what you want
your hurts lower my guard

If you're thinkin' to abort this life
I think it's better try to fight
if everything goes as it should be
what is the best way to living free

[chorus]
when the rain begins to fall
I'm ready to pay my wrongs
if you don't relieve my pain
what is wrong is wrong again

I am who I am
and nothing's gonna change
I am what I lived
and also what I feel

there'is nothing to do today
I am ready to follow my fate
there is only a love that I need
is the love that I can finally see

[repeat chorus]

now I'm ready to go
I'm ready to fight
I'm ready to escape from my own fight
now I'm ready to go
I'm ready to fight
I'm ready to escape from my own fight

this is my holy world
in this life
I'm ready to pay my wrongs
if you don't relieve my pain
what is wrong is wrong again

[repeat chorus]

what is wrong is wrong
what is wrong is wrong again
