Unlike some of the older fellows who write for this website, I actually got my start from listening to metalcore rather than nu-metal. Indeed, my first post on this site was about All That Remains was my first real metal band, and how it opened up so many doors for me, not just in terms of this new genre I would soon love with all of my heart, but music in general. When I first listened to All That Remains, I searched for a while to find more of the same style they performed. After going through many bands that were good, but didn’t impress me like I wanted to be, I discovered a band named Anterior, a band based out of the United Kingdom.

Those with some memory may remember Anterior. The Welsh melodic thrashers released an absolutely marvelous album entitled This Age of Silence back in 2007. Besides some touring, nothing was heard from then.
Until now, that is! They have released a brand new track from their upcoming album Echoes of the Fallen entitled “Tyranny”. My initial thoughts from this new track was that it was really good, being especially melodic in the chorus, and spectacular soloing was used, but unfortunately, nothing really stuck out like their debut.
You can look for Echoes of the Fallen being released in most of Europe August 26th, the UK August 29th, and the US on September 13th. It will be released on Metal Blade Records.
