Welcome to...

…about the name: well, it is originally the title of a short story by H. P. Lovecraft written in 1921
But who is Mr. Lovecraft? He was an American writer, born in 1890 and died in 1937.
He wrote horror short stories that were set in a unique mythical world…

„…That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die.”

I am trying to embody this dark thrill in my music. This is how these writings affect me. Facing fear and horror and meeting pre-human forces, the Great Elderly are the basis of his stories. This is what I suggest with my music as well. Atmospheric chords imply supernatural creatures, the Great Elderly, tribal drums summon ancient sects and demonic cults, effects and spoken inserts as well as sometimes aggressive bass lines are the results of adrenaline rush caused by fear. At the same time piano and strings are used to show beauty and desire as well as dreams: dreaming of other worlds, unknown places where fantasy and reality are mixed.

This is a journey into the world of dreams, beauty and fear. Come with me, if you will, let me show you what I mean. Slowly, from downtempo and dark ambient we ravel to the borders of brusque and aggressive electro-industrial and at the end we will see what beauty is hidden in it for us…


Nameless City was formed in 2009 as a side–project of Industrial Wave Studio. Its style is dominated by dark ambient, chill out and downtempo, with some occasional industrial elements. In his new project Peter „Peti” Renner collects his works inspired by the writings of H. P. Lovecraft. The name comes from the title of Lovecraft’s short story published in 1921, which is also a city often referred to in other writings, too.
Peti has been involved in music since 1993 but , in his words, his first experiments can hardly be called proper music. Many years have passed and by now we can say that this hobby became a passion. His style ranges from synth pop through ambient to industrial. The bands that have influenced him include Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Front 242, Front Line Assembly and Delerium. In 1997 he founded Industrial Wave Studio with two of his friends (Andris Zádor and Attila Méhes). The first positive feedback came in 2000 when one of his remixes was included in Kovács Ákos’ „Keresem az utam” remix album in mp3 format.
In 2001 Industrial Wave Studio has split, Andris and Attila have left the project, which was buried for 4 years. This period was spent with musical experiments, when in 2007 Peti found Intredent whom he has sent his works. As a result he was included in Electro Arc Compilation Vol.1 in 2007 and in NetWare Responsibilities’ compilation in 2008 (under Industrial Wave Studio). By 2009 Peti had so many songs inspired by H. P. Lovecraft that a separate project was needed. Nameless City’s first album was released at Limitless Audio on December 1, 2010, the title was inspired by Lovecraft as well: ’At The Mountains Of Madness’.
On February 25, 2011 a compilation was released at Electro Arc entitled ’Net Ware Victory Monuments’ that included Nameless City’s ’Stampede’. On May 27 ’Music For The Rising Sun: Part II’ compilation was released with Nameless City’s The Past as its 5th track. This compilation was released to aid the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan with all its proceedings spent on humanitarian aid.
On August 13, 2011 Peti performed live at Budapest’s Sziget Festival in the Cökxpon Ambient tent. This was actually his first ever performance. The event was followed by monthly performances at Cökxpon Ambient Café from September to January.
