Biography

BREAKING NEWS:
• Anon is currently gearing up for their first US tour (self-funded) which will kick off on August 11th 2006

• Anon will be featured in B.A.D.D. magazine’s premier issue (www.baddmagazine.com)

• Anon is currently launching a nation wide radio & P.R. promotion (look for that in July 06’).

• Anon has an upcoming live music video which was shot by MTV at a recent sold out Starland Ballroom show in front of 3,000 people

• Anon was recently interviewed and performed a live acoustic set on 88.9 WMCX radio.

Fusing heaviness and raw aggression with dark and moody melodies, Anon has captivated audiences with their original sounds. Anon’s dual vocalists sing, harmonize, and scream together; achieving a broader range than many of their contemporaries, rather than limiting each to a prescribed role. The chemistry of Anon’s instrumental core drives the listener through every possible emotion.

Anon won The New Jersey Battle of the Bands on August 15th 2004. Sponsored by Jerseyshows.com, this was a seven month long competition between hundreds of acts from all around the Tri-State area. As the only band in the contest’s history to achieve a perfect score, Anon went undefeated through the finals, holding First Place until the bitter end.

Anon invested their winnings from the New Jersey Battle of The Bands in their first full-length CD, recorded by Brooklyn’s Purple Light Studios; who has produced such acts as Candiria, E-Town Concrete, 40 Below Summer, 54 Visions, Agents of Man, and many more. The album was mastered at New York’s infamous Masterdisk by Roger Lian (Slayer, Mariah Carey, LL Cool J, Faith Hill, and Metallica). The album has since dropped and singles have been featured on MTV2, Monsoon Radio (www.monsoonradio.com), 89.5 FM WSOU (Seton Hall Pirate Radio), 88.9 FM WMCX, and 95.9 The WRAT.

In October of 04’ and 05’ Anon was nominated for Top Live Act, Top Male Vocalist, Top Bassist, and Top Hard Act by The Asbury Music Awards, at which they were a featured performer. After an energizing performance in the Twelfth Annual Asbury Music Awards, Anon won the award for Top Live Act of the Year

From the start, Anon has pushed and pulled their way to the top, independent of sponsorship or assistance from outside parties. Taking initiative to reach a larger audience, at their expense, the band members have established and trademarked their own record label, Venom Records. Anon has also designed and marketed an original merchandise line, as well as a groundbreaking website. Through blood, sweat and tears, Anon is dominating the scene with no end in sight

Lyrics

Everafter

Written By: Anon

Face withdrawn
No response
All along
Going further
Far from home
Subdue all of my sorrow

Chorus (x2)
When will it end?
I can’t see tomorrow
Some things are gone
Some things last forever

Broken Bones
Bruised internal
Fading alone
Cornerstone of all that’s hollow
These days, so wrong
My way, unknown

Chorus repeat (x2)

Fading, as I drift into another eternity
Watching life spin by me in this catatonic state of semi-reality
Falling away, forever….

Forever!
Don’t!

Chorus end (x2)
Forever
And ever
Forever
And ever
For….

Missed Direction

Written By: Anon

Suppose I trust in you
After all that we’ve been through
You’d leave me once again
And bring me to this end

Your loss

Looming in the darkness
One which I despise
Lurking in the shadows
Hides behind the lies

Weakness
Strength
The day
I bled for all to see

Suppose I trust in you
After all that we’ve been through
You’d leave me once again
And bring me to this end

You fuck

Hell has frozen over
Broken down, denied
No more starting over
Nothing to decide

Weakness
Strength
The day
I bled for all to see

Lost, feeling so sick
Gone, know that I’m dying inside
Sin, damns my soul
Crushed, just by the sight of you

(Chorus)
All that I needed was for you to go away
Seems to be that I’m enjoying
That very same shade of gray
You, you always promised that everything would be ok
Knowing now it’s only bullshit
I still go back anyway

Beg me, deny me
The day that the sun came
Reflecting my shadow
To all who would see me dead – lost – dead – in – dead – your - dead

(Repeat Chorus)

Looming in the darkness
One which I despise
Lurking in the shadows
Hides behind the lies

Weakness
Strength
The day
I bled for all
The weakness
Strength
The day
I bled for all to see

Man Down

Written By: Anon

Break through the skin deeper down to my bones
All my life I’m in it
Make the incision to find where it grows
To decide what’s in it
Conform to anger to unleash my hate
Too much time within it
Got to go far to escape all the pain
All my life I’m in it
To decide what’s in it
Too much time within it
Alone
Break

Go on
To a darker place
Fall in
Deeper to disgrace
Division
Of my dying soul
Fading – on my own

Long gone from my home
Don’t even think that I’m gonna make it
All on my own
Gotta find a way to escape this pain

Morning
Hate to see my face
Crawling
Want to be erased
Decision
Losing all control
Falling – on my own

(1st Chorus)
Long gone from my home
Gotta find a way to escape this
All on my own
Don’t even think I’m gonna make it
I’m so alone
Gotta find a way to escape this
All on my own
Don’t even think that I’m gonna make it home

Leave me here to die unhappy
Alone, inside
So sorry I hurt you baby, I’ve gone and died
All alone, All alone (pain) all on my own (pain) All alone
Deal with the pain on my own - inside

Man Down

No more
Time to set it straight
Morbid
Slow impending fate
Defeated
Deeper in a hole
Losing
All I know

(Repeat 1st chorus)

Man down

Down
Down
