PILORI Feuilles Tombantes CD
After the breakup of his metal band Desolated Gernot was looking for a new musical activity. What first started for fun in the living room then soon developed into a creative band project with Marion who completed Gernot's compositions with her vocals.
In 1998 their demo cd "Soufre" was released and their music rapidly found favour with the gothic scene. Only few months later Trisol released Pilori's first official album "Feuilles Tombantes". Until the band's end in 2009 all five CDs were released via Trisol Music Group.
Thanks to the good work of Motherdance (Patty Hele) Pilori soon played concerts all over Europe together with well-known artists from the scene (e.g. Sol Invictus, Sieben, Gitane Demone or Ordo Rosario Equilibrio). During the years quite a number of musicians contributed to the Pilori releases as well as joined them on stage. Especially Inge and her beautiful viola melodies shaped the music of Pilori. She became a fix member of the band and contributed her compositions to the album "Until The Day Dawn".
Many Pilori songs can also be found on countless compilations. Also the band has always been cooperating with other musicians from all over the world, be it on cds or lives on stage. For many years Pilori was a well-known part of the gothic scene with their melancholic and dreamy songs that were especially successful in the Heavenly Voices and Neofolk genre.
