Anthriel Unveils "Transcendence" Album Details

Lion Music is proud to announce the June 15th release for Finnish prog metal act Anthriel's second album "Transcendence," arriving seven years after previous album "The Pathway." Guitarist Timo Niemistö explains the long wait time:

"To make a long story short, life happened to us with highs and lows. We started to record a new material soon after releasing 'The Pathway' but some time after we had to let go of our prolonged rehearsal studio. It was a huge setback for the band as a lot of Anthriel history was written within those walls. As a result of frustration the bands ways departed with Jari and Klaus.

"We were kind of drifting some time to find and build a new environment and fresh start to continue recording of 'Transcendence.' Henrikki Markkula is a long time friend of us and was a whole band choice number one as a new drummer. Finding a bass player took a while but gladly Mr.Horttana contacted us and turned out to be a multi-talented studio musician and a great personality as well.

"Since the debut album 'The Pathway,' the Anthriel family has seen couple marriages and some kids born. I'm busy of repairing house and building a home studio for our needs. The band is stronger than ever and we are really looking forward to prove our strength at live.

He goes on to describe "Transcendence" by saying the release is "musically and lyrically a concept album. Each song has a lot of different layers as we like to keep our songs as a musical adventure for the fans; the more you dig the more you find. New album is solid album with lyrical and musical theme but it also keeps a hidden themes from our previous album. Compared to 'The Pathway,' new release 'Transcendence' is a darker and heavier album."
