NEWS: Anger as Art
Anger as Art
Ad Mortem Festinates
label: Old School Metal Records
release: 11 March 2016
"Veteran L.A. Thrashers ANGER AS ART will release their new album Ad Mortem Festinamus March 11 on Old School Metal Records. On the highly anticipated follow-up to 2013 barnstormer Hubris, Inc. the quartet has done the improbable by creating a roaring thrash metal beast that doesn’t just raise the bar; it crushes it into dust. Recorded, produced, mixed, and mastered by Ronald Sandoval at Rev Studios, Chino CA, Ad Mortem Festinamus (Latin translation: We Hurry into Death) is everything you’ve come to expect from ANGER AS ART…and more! Speeding recklessness, lacerating solos, and a shrapnel storm of riffs combine to make what will undoubtedly be considered one of 2016’s fiercest forays into Thrash Metal Armageddon. Ad Mortem Festinamusis venomous, angry thrash/speed/death metal. If you feel that no one hears your voice and you're pissed about it, then this is the album for you…because everyone is angry, and ANGER is beautiful! Line-up: Rob Alaniz – Drums, Vocal; Eric Bryan – Vocals, Bass; Steve Gaines – Vocals, Guitar, Keys; Dan Oliverio – Guitar, Vocal; Additional Musicians – Greg Johnson – Organ.
You may read a number of bios where bands will extol their virtues of being the next big thing, as important as Led Zeppelin, inventor of the wheel. ANGER AS ART doesn’t do that. They don’t need to. To know what ANGER AS ART is, one can look at what they have been since 2004. A first rate, old school thrash metal band – rooted in the history created by the members of the band. Take one look at their lineage – members of Abattoir, Evil Dead, Bloodlust, Hirax, Reverend, Bitch… and know where they are going. Two World Tours, shows with Destruction, Overkill, Testament, Death Angel, Exodus, Saxon, Agent Steel, ex- Maiden vocalists Bayley and DiAnno, Tankard, Onslaught, Katatonia and many more."
