Finnish Extreme Metallers ANZILLU Release “Discordia” Music Video and Digital Single

Debut Album ‘Ex Nihilo’ out Jan. 27th – Pre-order Now

Finnish extreme metallers ANZILLU – whose sound is punctuated by buzz-saw guitar riffs delivered with equal amounts of dexterous shredding and pummeling anthemic brute force – release the fourth single/video from their anticipated debut album. Today the digital single “Discordia” is available on all streaming and download platforms and you can watch the video here – https://youtu.be/MzNAwYJouT4

”’Discordia’ was one of the reasons my previous band split up. It might be a divisive song for some people, but we firmly stand behind it,” explains guitarist Jesse Kämäräinen. “In the album context it fits perfectly as a breather in between more brutal songs and showcases the band’s versatility in songwriting. The song’s longing melody gives it almost a power ballad vibe, while the tempo is punishing 200bpm with lots of guitar action that culminates to an epic solo. The lyrics deal with a withering friendship that takes more than gives and how to let go. I think it’s an important message that sometimes it’s just time to move on from so

“Discordia” is the fourth offering from the new name in the Finnish metal scene following up slamming numbers like “Trumpets Of War” https://youtu.be/AqGvf-qLHFg, “Needles (On My Nerves)” https://youtu.be/AVY2HntvZR8 and “The Cleansing Flame” https://youtu.be/BAYtMtM3mJQ showcasing the group’s power and impact evident on forthcoming album, ‘Ex Nihilo,’ to be release January 27th on Digipak CD, limited edition magenta colored vinyl (300 copies) and Digital. Pre-Order now at www.smarturl.com/anzillu

”We are thrilled to finally be able to reveal the details about our forthcoming debut album, ‘Ex Nihilo.’ It has been a lot of work and a long journey to get this album made, and the day that you get to hear it draws near. We’ve sat on it for a year, but in January we’ll unleash some hard hitting and punishing tunes filled with energy for all of you people” states Kämäräinen. “We’re also very much looking to tour in February, and hoping to see a lot of you in the audience. Until then, you can check out the awesome cover art by Mad Matt Design. It will look great on physical releases, especially the LP. Place your pre-orders now so you’ll not miss out.”

Captured at the famed Sonic Pump Studios with Nino Laurenne (Amorphis, Ensiferum, Omnium Gatherum) recording and mixing and mastering by Svante Forsbäck (Volbeat, Soulfly, Kalmah) ‘Ex Nihilo’ is sure to be sonically pleasing.

Though the band itself is new, the musicians comprising ANZILLU are not inexperienced. The new group – whose name is inspired by the ancient Sumerian word for “abomination” – was formed in 2019 by guitarist Jesse Kämäräinen after the dissolution of his previous group Inkvisitor, which released two records of thrash-influenced extreme metal between 2015 and 2018.  Kämäräinen had already demoed an album’s worth of new material at the time of that development, and went on to bring in a battery of fellow notables that had also been making their names within Finnish metal circles to form ANZILLU. The searing vocal talents of Teemu Kemppainen (Argent Void), the thunderous bass of Rasmus Kantonen, and the death metal crunch of fellow guitarist Sami Katajainen (GAF) join Kämäräinen’s six-string powers to deliver a blistering assault of aural senses.
