We’re getting closer and closer to the release of the next Animals As Leaders record and the anticipation could not be any higher. The upcoming fourth studio album by the instrumental, prog-metal innovators is titled, “The Madness of Many”, and so far we have heard two singles off the soon to be released record. The latest of these two singles is a track called “Arithmophobia”, and it is the complete polar opposite of the first single, “The Brain Dance”.
“Arithmophobia” is a mix between smooth-flowing riffing in peculiar time signatures and impressively heavy sections that make any listener subconsciously head bang. From melodic, sitar leads to polyrhythmic, heavy breakdowns, “Arithmophobia” adds to the already extremely high anticipation for this sure to be stellar Animals As Leaders album. I’m assuming AAL released these two singles to show the extreme ends of the spectrum “The Madness of Many” will feature.
With what I’ve heard so far off this upcoming release, I would not be surprised if “The Madness of Many” finds its way onto the Albums of the Year list for 2016! Check out this latest single below and be sure to check in for more updates and reviews leading up to the release of “The Madness of Many”!
