San Francisco/North Bay progressive deathcore unit, Ænimus have teamed up with Heavy Blog is Heavy to unleash a brand new track entitled ‘Inertia‘, from their forthcoming As Yet Untitled debut album. Head on over and check out ‘Inertia‘ Here. The band released a teaser video clip earlier this week featuring lead guitarist Brian ‘Deebs’ James playing through one of the solos from the song. Check out the video at this location.
Brian had the following to say about the writing process for the song and a bit of what fans can expect from the full length: “I am beyond excited to finally release a hint of what is to come and hope everyone enjoys! ‘Inertia‘ was written with an experimental mindset as well as the strong intention of straying away from predictable things many bands tend to do nowadays. I feel like the song turned out exactly how we all imagined which fills me with satisfaction! If one were to base this song off of what the rest of the album is like, I’d say you took an axe to the tip of the ice berg and then just a little bit more..so there’s still some curve balls too. We’re anxiously waiting to show everyone all of this music we’ve been working on over the past couple years and look forward to releasing it very, very soon.”
Ænimus are currently wrapping up the recording process for their debut album at NB Recording in Santa Rosa, CA with Producer Nick Botelho (Deadly Remains, The Kennedy Veil). A release date has not been set, though the band plans to release it sometime later this year.
The track list for the As Yet Untitled album is as follows:
I. Asherah’s Hourglass
II. The Awakening
III. The Grasp of Ruin
V. Descent Into Chaos
VI. Black Malice Construct
VII. Black Malice Alchemy
IX. Heavy Lies the Crown
XII. The Final Delirium
Ænimus have come a long way in the last 2 years, receiving support from established genre heavyweights such as All Shall Perish, Whitechapel, and Within The Ruins and sharing the stage with the likes of Origin, Cattle Decapitation, Aborted, Decrepit Birth, Battlecross and Severed Savior, among others. The band has also managed to gain endorsements with EMG Pick Ups, SIT Strings, Saluda Custom Cymbals, and InTune Guitar Picks as well as sponsorships from Berma Clothing and Delusive Clothing, respectively. Their track, “The Grasp of Ruin,” was also featured on the soundtrack for Supremacy MMA (Kung Fu Factory/505 Games), which was released last year for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 consoles.
