Animals As Leaders – Parrhesia

Number five from the instrumental progressive metallers
“It’s been a while since we’ve released a body of work. We’re really proud of this collection of songs […] and excited to share it with all of you,” Tosin Abasi announced the new album from his band Animals As Leaders. After months of hints and a release hiatus of more than five years, the US instrumental progressive metallers emerged from obscurity in 2021 as loud and rousing as ever.

“Parrhesia” is the name of their fifth album in 15 years of band history. It will be released on March 25, 2022 as the follow-up to 2016’s “The Madness Of Many”.

Animals As Leaders already shortened the wait for the record with singles “Monomyth” and “The Problem Of Other Minds”. The latter is a fast-paced looping track that goes through constant beat changes while drummer Matt Garstka keeps the song in check with innovative drumming. This is joined by synthesizers and melodic electric guitar licks from Abasi and guitarist/bassist Javier Reyes – all in just two and a half minutes of playing time.

Animals As Leaders were formed in Washington, D.C. in 2007. To date, they have released four albums, the debut “Animals As Leaders” (2009), “Weightless” (2011), “The Joy Of Motion” (2014), and “The Madness Of Many” (2016), which have earned them an excellent reputation in the djent scene, a subgenre of progressive metal that owes its name to the characteristic sound of a distorted, palm-muted guitar with high gain and low pitch. “Djent” is an onomatopoeia for this sound. “Parrhesia” is album number five and is already available for pre-order.
