Biography

Seattle, United States (1997 – present)

With Abney Park’s unique darkwave style, one can easily imagine inspiration drawn from fairy tales and nightmares, and recollect a past that never was. Heavy Steampunk inspiration creates style quite unlike anything else.

Abney Park began around 1997, but their popularity exploded with the onset of internet music, with much success through MP3.com in the early 2000’s. The band was a regular chart topper, often holding the number 1 – 5 positions in Goth and Darkwave, and Industrial Dance music charts. In 2005 the band morphed from a more Darkwave/Industrial inspired act to a Steampunk inspired act.

Abney Park’s music has been featured on a number of movie soundtracks, including “Insomnis Amour”, “Goth”, and “Lord of the Vampires”. The band’s music has also been featured in many compilation CD’s, including Cleopatra Records “The Unquiet Grave” vol. III, “Annihilation and Seduction”, “Eighteen” and many more.

Abney Park has performed all over the North America, appearing in Portland, Chicago, Las Vegas, Reno, Hollywood, and countless shows in their home base of Seattle. Their fans form a near-cult following, and have been known to travel from as far as New Zealand and Mexico City just to see them perform.

    Группа вызывает очень противоречивые чувства. Вроде бы великолепный чистейший вокал, красивое сочетание инструментов и атмосфера стимпанка. Но вот гребаная "готишность", с колоссальным вкраплением индастриала и даже электронщины в некоторых местах портят всю картину.

    Когда-то давно понравилась мне песня "Building Steam" и часто её слушал. После того, как прослушал дискографию понял, что у них есть пару весьма хороших песен, самая первая понравилась "The Wake" и "Victoria". Также "Black Day" можно выделить ещё. Неплохо, неплохо..

    Nomad прекрасен, хотя женского вокала не хватает временами

    Between this band and Dr. Steel, I feel like I need to look into steampunk music a LOT more!
