ANTHROPIA Hard At Work On New Material

French metal band ANTHROPIA has commenced work on material for the follow-up to last year's "The Ereyn Chronicles: Part 1 – The Journey of Beginnings" album.

"Is this the following of 'The Ereyn Chronicles Part 2'? No, it's a brand new concept this time, full of surprises again, experiments and of course melodies and emotions," stated ANTHROPIA mastermind Hugues Lefebvre (a.k.a. Hugo). "So exit dwarves, horses and co for a little while, the new concept is something totally different. You'll have to wait a bit to find out the story and the protagonists... I'll just say that the environment is quite contemporary with pieces of sci-fi/biblical stuff."

ANTHROPIA's video for the song "Question of Honour" off "The Ereyn Chronicles: Part 1 – The Journey of Beginnings" can be viewed below. The main portion of the clip was shot in the French Alps near the village of Le Mas.

According to the band's official bio, "The Ereyn Chronicles: Part 1 – The Journey of Beginnings" "buzzes with flashes of IRON MAIDEN's gritty conceptual metal, Dave Mustaine/MEGADETH lightning-speed riffing, DREAM THEATER's sweeping storytelling, Yngwie Malmsteen's neo-classical minor-scale mining, 'The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway'-era GENESIS atmospherics, KANSAS' busy symphonic boogie-rock, classical guitar beauty and flair, and RUSH's dark '70s sci-fi/fantasy explorations. Simply put, ANTHROPIA's classical-metal-prog hybrid enraptures the listener in a world of sound, vision, and imagination."
