|Annisokay, the dynamic German rock/metal band, has been captivating audiences since its formation in 2007. With their blend of heavy guitar riffs, driving drum rhythms, melodic vocals, and aggressive shouts, the band has amassed a dedicated and rapidly growing fanbase across the globe. |
Led by vocalist and producer Chris Wieczorek (Sawdust Recording), Annisokay are thrilled to announce their upcoming new EP Abyss Pt I, out September 22 via Arising Empire. They also reveal the video for the new track “Calamity.” It’s a special take on Leony’s hit single “Remedy” but darker.
“With ‘Calamity,’ our metalcore take on Leony’s ‘Remedy,’ we’ve delved into the struggle of being pulled into something that won’t let you go,” the band says. “The lyrics narrate an intense internal battle and the effort to break free from a daunting situation. We thoroughly enjoyed transforming this upbeat track into a dark, heavy metalcore version and can’t wait for you all to hear it.”
