Actarus started in 2002 with a kind of instrumental post-rock and released their first autoproduced record called 'Hypothermia' in December 2002. After some shows in their area: Luxembourg, France, Belgium or Germany their music took another direction: Actarus became a mix between Math-rock and Post-rock, still instrumental but much more groovy and faster. They get some positive feedbacks and had a nice opportunity to support Placebo in 2003. Afterwards due to personal & musical taste reasons of different members they decided to split-up in March 2004 and recorded their most recent tracks and released a second self-titled Mini-album and a split-cd with another local band called 'Eyston'. New Romance for kids records from Canada decided to distribute their Mini-album, so as you can find it in Europe and in America. That's the story so far... From their ashes some new bands were born: 'Treasure chest at the end of the rainbow' and 'Mutiny on the bounty'. Some of them are now also playing in bands like 'La fa connected', 'Do androids dream of electric sheep?', 'Artaban' and recently 'Miaow Miaow'... Actarus s/t (2005) Luxemburg collective quintet Actarus bring it all out on this S/T 32 min. recording. Max, Paul, Fred, Claudio and Nicolas, simmer between post/ rock and math-rock, this instrumental formation can cradle you to the sky before crashing down and leaving you confused....... Super melodic guitars mixed with varied time signatures combine with Actarus' intense fury to provide an attack like a punch in the face.' Punk Planet .70 Recorded march 2004, by Pierre Bianchi at Kulturfabrik in Esch/ Alzette (Luxemburg), this is the first official release for Actarus having put out two limited edition records one self released full length (out of print), and one split with Eyston on Noise Works records.
