Featured Band Feb 23rd: Anger Within
ANGER WITHIN, (based in Atlanta GA, USA) fuses metal, hardcore, and militant, death-like vocals to create a brutal, non-compromising form of heavy thrash, guaranteed to excite open-minded audiences everywhere.
Ignited both by a passion for thrash metal, and an anger at injustice, ANGER WITHIN introduced itself onto the scene in the ’90’s, and was founded by members Wulf, (Vocals/Guitar,) Oz, (Guitar,) and John, (Bass.) Establishing various rhythm sections throughout the next couple of years, the band headed to Frozen Sound Studios and recorded three demo tapes, produced by Kim Monday, that laid the ground work, for intense, dynamic innovations to come.
ANGER WITHIN broke into the “underground” tape trading scene with these demos. Each new tape emphasized a heavier sound and aggressively focused on themes few death metal bands dare to touch – world oppression, gang violence, environmental distress, loss of friendship – along with brutally outspoken lyrics challenging man’s inhumanity to man. Over the years, many people have described their sound as thought provoking, heavy, straight to the point…and ultimately, original metal/hardcore music, with political and socially concerned lyrics.
The live experience of ANGER WITHIN, has been compared to the energy of a SEPULTURA, NAPALM DEATH, or early-METALLICA show. The band has played at quite a few festivals & venues, in several states. Cities include, Pittsburgh PA, Uniontown PA, Charlottesville VA, Washington D.C., Martins Ferry OH, Fairmont WV, Grafton WV, Bridgeport WV, Clarksburg WV, Parkersburg WV, Huntington WV, Wheeling WV, and of course their hometown of Atlanta GA. The band has also performed with national touring acts such as, EXCRUCIATING PAIN, KARMA TO BURN, TWO MAN ADVANTAGE, BYZANTINE, THY WILL BE DONE, ORIGIN, SWORN ENEMY, DYING FETUS, KINGDOM OF SORROW, SOILENT GREEN, MADBALL, PRIMER 55, D.R.I., MALEVOLENT CREATION, SIX FEET UNDER, DECREPIT BIRTH, CANNABIS CORPSE, & THE VANS WARPED TOUR 2010 & 2012, (ATLANTA,) just to name a few!
With the three cassette demos and two full length CDs, (both produced by Josh Swiger and recorded at Blues Alley Studios,) under their belts…the band has received mail, and support from all over the world such as, Russia, England, Japan, France, Mexico, and of course the United States. The band has played or been featured on Brutal Existence Radio, WCLG, U92, and has even been on the airwaves in France.
2015, brings a new era, a new chapter for the band! The band plans to reinvent itself, into a better, heavier, uncompromising, steamrolling unit! Wulf states: “Anger Within has been overlooked & underrated for way too long. I’m sick of seeing all these bands, who claim to be “metal,” or “hardcore,” but yet, they have no heaviness, no heart, & no soul to their music! I take metal & hardcore, very seriously…it’s more than just a hobby to me…it’s a lifestyle! With two killer 4 song E.P.’s finally recorded, (“26” by Brian Neely @ Ultragod Studios, & “Fiction To Reality by Ronnie Winstead @ Virtual Adrenaline Studios,) both being released by New Zealand based company, Satanica Records, & one EP, (“In Defense Of The Planet” by Pat Foote,)…Anger Within’s fight for world domination, rages on!
