Biography

Finland (2005 – present)

Arktau Eos is a duo from Finland, comprised of Anti Ittna Haapapuro (also of Aeoga, Arktau Aon, Aural Holograms, Dolorian, Halo Manash, I.Corax) and Antti Litmanen (also of Arktau Aon and Babylon Whores).

From their pages: “Born out of the vision of its creators in early 2005, Arktau Eos has become a sentient frame capable of capturing fleeting moments of oneiric activity, where essential gnosis manifests itself in blazing hieroglyphs… It is a ghastly and wondrous parade of cryptic images and sounds, which a given recording is a reflection of, thus becoming a new gateway for the perceptive listener. Equal parts stellar and serene, subterranean and disturbing, Arktau Eos remains in constant evolution, paying attention only to the cues of the spirits and maintaining the integrity of the dream-continuum of which our ‘consciousness’ is but a mere drop in the ocean.”

Arktau Eos performs masked in keeping with their occult (“secret”) persona and prefer to go by AIH and AIL, respectively. They have toured mostly outside of their native Finland, including shows in the U.K., Russia, and the U.S.

They released two albums in 2012: CD-only “Ioh-Maera” and vinyl-only “Unworeldes” via Svart Records. Earlier offerings were released on their own label, Aural Hypnox. Typically, they record in an analog studio, using tape reels and unusual and handmade instruments. Production is not solely musical in nature, as Arktau Eos also produces their own album covers and non-musical “special releases.”
