Winner of Two GAMIQ 2020 Awards “Metal Album of The Year”
& Piggy Award (career recognition in honour of Voivod guitarist Denis “Piggy” D’Amour)
Canadian thrash legends Anonymus’ unleashed their award-winning (GAMIQ Awards) and 12 studio album “La Bestia” (Bam&Co Heavy) during June 2020. The album is the band’s first Spanish album that follows their discography of both French and English releases. Many metalheads and critics asked the most relevant question, why an album in Spanish? The answer… since Drummer Carlos Araya is Chilean born, and Oscar (lead vocals and bass) and Dan Souto (guitars and backing vocals) are sons of Spanish immigrants, it was only inevitable to make a record in that language that 3/4 of the band is fluent in.
The tracks on “La Bestia” were produced mainly by guitarist Jef Fortin as well as Colin Richardson who also produced 1999’s ‘Instinct’ and Jean-Francois Dagenais (Kataklysm) who produced 2006’s ‘Chapter Chaos Begins’. The album also features the bilingual song “Violencia Versus Violence” with the participation of Carlos Maldos of Lethal Creation (MX) and Arno Dhenain Le Bourhis of Black Bomb A (FR) along with a second bilingual track “Tierra” with Marco Calliari singing in Italian.
Today, Anonymus‘ drummer Carlos Araya presents his latest playthrough for the track “Violencia Versus Violence”, which can be watched via its premiere on GearGods HERE.
