Ay! Eloy! So fantastic at delving into the fantastic. This is a band that has greatly one me over lately.
I enjoy Planets very much as well.

The Power and The Passion through to Metromania was a great run of albums and all with a sci-fi theme.
Also Tides Turn Forever and Ocean II are well worth checking out.


I heard somewhere that Frank Borneman never read any Sci Fi novels but I'm not sure I'm buying it. The bands name is derived from the future civilization in The Time Machine for crying out loud.

Considering that they got the spelling wrong (it's Eloi in the book) then it's a fair bet they got the band name from the 1960 film staring Rod Taylor and not the novel.

Has anyone written music about the advancement of society to the next level?  I believe "Watcher of the Skies" is in that vein.  It would seem to be an obvious musical theme for prog to explore.

This is an excellent article about how intelligent races may evolve in the universe, and why we should be concerned about it!

Symphony X's ICONOCLAST is a great sci-fi album.

It's the classic MAN v.s MACHINE as the machines (which look like mech warriors) try and take over the world.

I love it. :)

Personally my friends, I think all do to psychedelics. Frank Bornemann' is a dabbler indeed.



God love it though. What a fantastic mind. Great lyricist. I really like 'The Sun-Song.'
The guy is captain majestic to me.

True but I think maybe the misspelling was intentional. A lot of bands seemed to have done that(ie Led Zeppelin, Def Leppard etc).

Yes, I believe the y in Eloy is deliberate but I forget the reason for the change apart from "just because"...

There's a 1989 German movie titled "Hard to Be a God" with a soundtrack written by Triumvirat's keyboardist Jurgen Fritz. Haven't watched that, but I heard it's a great movie.
