Animus Complex hail from Tempe Arizona, USA and have released a fantastic new video for their single Animals. the band have introduced me to a new style of metal that I was not very familiar with until now. Their style is described by the band as Progressive Djent.
The new video is a great way to depict Animus Complex’s sound and also display what they are all about. The overall vibe of the track reminds me of a modern Fear Factory with better song structures and more power, and thankfully without all the techno beats and samples, which I never was a fan of. The guitar work is simply out of this world, combined with the intricate bass work and awesome drumming I can’t find any faults, flat-spots or anything negative whatsoever! The clever use of vocal harmonies and guttural growls is tastefully done, not over the top on one or the other style of vocal, just the perfect blend.
I can strongly recommend Animus Complex to anyone who is a fan of the latter Death albums such as Human, Individual Thought Patterns…. and also any metal head who is a fan of Progressive Death metal.
