I don’t know if you’ve heard, but there is a pretty new Thrash/Power Metal band on the block who goes by the name of ANUBIS. They just dropped a self-titled EP on Bandcamp and quite frankly y’all need this one in your lives. Bassist/singer Devin Reiche (from HATCHET) has a perfect voice for this style of music. He’s got power in his vocals, but he doesn’t overdo it like far too many other singers do. You know what I mean, right? Opening track “Everything Disintegrates” showcases this perfectly. It’s also chock full o’tasty riffs!
Next up is “Sin For Me” which has a tightly wound intro before the guitar duo of John Sawicki and Stefan Bailet go for broke with a barrage of even more riffs. Drummer Robin Salazar gets the horses to gallop on a Hellacious thrill ride as well. Closer “Prayer For the Prey” is definitely my favorite of the three tracks on the disc. This thing is all fire and fury and one headbanging monster of a song! All four guys really hit their stride on this last number and I love it.
All told you can definitely count me in as a fan of ANUBIS. This stuff is right up my alley, and I am sure you’ll feel the same way. If you like Heavy Metal without pretense and bullshit, then these guys are for you. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Click the Bandcamp link and hear for yourself. This one is worth buying, folks. I did, and I recommend you do the same.
