Lion Music are delighted to announce the signing of progressive metallers Anthriel.
Hailing from Finland. Anthriel’s music can be described as a progressive metal band with straight metal and neo-classical influences. Formed in 2004 by Timo Niemisto (guitars), Antti Hakulinen (keyboards) and Jari Kuokkanen (drums) and Klaus Wirzenius (bass), it wasn’t until vocalist Simo Silvan joined in 2008 that the band really found their true direction.
With a style that is sure to appeal to fans of the likes of Symphony X, Adagio and Yngwie Malmsteen the bands debut album “The Pathway” is an absolute monster offering, possessing an exceptionally high standard of songwriting from start to finish with first class performances from all musicians, the final icing comes in the guise of an ultra powerful production which puts many of the genres leaders to shame.
“Anthriel – The Pathway” is set for release on October 15th 2010. More information on the album to follow soon. In the meantime check out the band at www.myspace.com/anthrielmusic where 2 samples can be heard from the debut album.
