Anaya release debut EP ‘Rewoven Patterns’

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

 

The progressive metal quartet from the United States known as Anaya have released their debut EP record album, titled, “Rewoven Patterns.” The record is comprised of four original tracks for an approximate total listening time of twenty minutes. It has been proudly published as an independent release on the Anaya Productions music records label. A dark, high-octane and extremely flammable quatrain of songs, “Rewoven Patterns” represents an exceptionally worthy addition to the American catalog of progressive metal, and to heavy metal music in general.

 

“Rewoven Patterns” is the first official Anaya record to feature every member of the band: vocalist Abel Alvarado, bassist Andrew Hooley, drummer Clay Straughan, and guitarist Cody Montague. They cite as main artistic influences legends and founding music titans of prog metal such as Meshuggah and Cynic. Likewise, their musical character retains much of the sound, tone and style of the experimental metal pioneers who laid the groundwork before them, such as Pantera and Neurosis.

 

Taking certain cues from “doom” metal and other latter-day subgenres, the Anaya sound is more melodic at times than that of many prog-metal bands that have come before. Anaya use this to great advantage. The tireless riffing of their guitars is not unlike the sonorous rising and falling of fiery violin solos. These soar atop a boiling, roiling pit of undulating, walking bass lines and drums that thunder Zeus-like throughout their album. Their vocals have range, punch, and scope, and Anaya includes a variety of singing styles in their music to keep listeners guessing. As shadowy as their “Rewoven Patterns” is – and its sonic soul is truly black – it is also more colorfully creative than much of what the progressive metal genre produces.

 

Hailing from the Denver, CO area, Anaya have been headlining metal concerts and gracing the waves of local metal radio programs in preparation for the landmark release of “Rewoven Patterns.” With an ever-growing and ravenous fan base, their EP is hitting online stores with plenty of anticipation. Their official BandCamp page promises that, “A full-length LP is currently in the works and is expected to be released early 2014.”

 

“Rewoven Patterns” by Anaya is available online worldwide.
