ANIMETAL-USA featuring singer Mike Vescera (OBSESSION/ex-LOUDNESS), bassist Rudy Sarzo (BLUE ÖYSTER CULT, ex-OZZY OSBOURNE, QUIET RIOT, WHITESNAKE, DIO), drummer Scott Travis (JUDAS PRIEST) and guitarist Chris Impellitteri (IMPELLITTERI) are gearing up for the October 12th release of their debut album in Japan, featuring the band covering Japanese anime theme songs – a spin on the original Animetal band launched in Japan by ANTHEM vocalist Eizo Sakamoto that was launched in 1996 and called it quits in 2006. Album is produced by Greg Reely ; all songs are arranged by Marty Friedman (ex-Megadeth) ; Chris Impellitteri.
Animetal-USA went to #1 on AMAZON’s Hard Rock Heavy Metal chart; #2 on AMAZON’s Anime chart in Japan within the first 24 hours of the announcement of Animetal-USA.
Animetal-USA takes up where the original Japanese Animetal band left off in 1996, combining famous classic anime music with some original metal riffs, solos, vocals, bass and drums, as well as some very cool surprises.
In fact, you will definitely hear a few familiar legendary metal riffs from some of your favorite legendary metal bands that gave their blessing, mixed with some new originals.
Although this music is based on Anime, it has lots of original screaming vocals, shredding guitar solos, and a mean bad ass rhythm section.
We will be releasing some sample songs such as ‘Yamato’, ‘Thesis Of A Cruel Angel’, ‘Gachaman’ and ‘Animetal Medley’ on our website shortly.
Stay tuned !
