NoLifeTilMetal Records is excited to be bringing you the killer new release from LA thrashers ANGER AS ART
You may read a number of bios where bands 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, EvilDead, Bloodlust, Hirax, Death, Manowar, Raven, Heretic, Bitch,… and know where they are going.
Multiple World Tours, touring with Destruction, Overkill, Testament, Death Angel, Exodus, Saxon, Agent Steel, ex- Maiden vocalists Bayley and DiAnno, Tankard, Onslaught, Katatonia…
Anger As Art was intended to be a 'swan song' recording of songs written by Steve Gaines (vocals, guitar). But demand was so strong, that a band was launched. Joined by drummer Rob Alaniz, bassist vocalist Eric Bryan and guitarist Albert Gonzales, the band began touring steadily, going around the world multiple times. When most others are beginning to fade away, Anger As Art has returned in 2023 with their 7th and strongest album to date – “Virtual Sympathy.” A 11-song juggernaut of doom-laden thrash. Soaring Guitars? Check. Gut-wrenching vocals? Check. Amazing rhythm section? Double check. No signs of slowing down for these founders/veterans of the worldwide thrash/speed/death metal scene. They’re just getting started.
Hitting the streets September 1st on all digital and streaming platforms as well as CD, additionally a very limited vinyl pressing will be made available later this year.
