Eloy is a progressive rock band from Germany, whose musical style includes symphonic and space rock, the latter being more
prevalent on earlier albums. The band took their name from the Eloi, a futuristic race of people in the H.G. Wells novel The Time
Founded in 1969 by guitarist Frank Bornemann, the band has endured several line-up changes, with Bornemann being the only
constant member of the group. In the 1980s, after a series of major splits in the group, Bornemann pursued a more commercial
direction. Despite attracting a large following, the band never gained popularity in the United States.
