French metal band ANTHROPIA has finished mixing its new album, "The Chain Reaction", tentatively due later in the year via an as-yet-undetermined label. The CD was recorded at ArtMusic studio in Nice and the group's own studio and was mixed by Franois Merle from the French band MANIGANCE.
ADAGIO keyboardist Kevin Codfert makes a guest appearance on "The Chain Reaction".
ANTHROPIA recently parted ways with Magna Carta Records, the label which released the band's 2006 effort, "The Ereyn Chronicles: Part 1 - The Journey of Beginnings" album.
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."
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.
