Ana Kefr "Volume 1"

Ok, so it takes a lot anymore to really get me to notice bands. It's not that there isn't tons of talent out there, and some great bands, but for something to truly stand out to me, it has to be something really special. Ana Kefr are one of those bands. This is one of a few CD's that I have been listening to over and over again lately. Brutal, yet catchy and memorable. Fantastic song structures, twisting and building into each new part, into each new song. This blows away most heavy bands today. There is so much emotion contained here. Anger moves through it, anger at our society and what it does to us. It's not just anger that emotes through this CD, though, it is far more complex than that. It is very politically incorrect, just the way it should be. Well, written, intelligent, thought provoking lyrics, backed with powerful, original music. And this is just their first CD. Here, watch their EPK below, and go check out their very cool looking MySpace page

At War!

So, this week At War are back at Pyramid Studios in Ithaca, NY finishing up their new CD for Heavy Artillery Records. After hearing 2 of the songs, I can only say that this release will be awesome! If you liked At War before, you will LOVE this. They have managed to keep their old school style without letting it sound dated at all. This is At War 2009, and I honestly can't wait to hear this completed album. Of course it never hurts to have someone as renowned as Alex Perialis behind the board. Anyway, back in January, when they were up here recording (they are currently mixing), we did a pretty comprehensive interview with Paul after he appeared on The Metallic Onslaught. The interview is in 2 parts on YouTube below, and also appears on our Veoh site, also below...
