ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Technicality and brutality have a head-on collision on the latest release from Sympathy. Hailing from Canada, the brainchild of Dharok has been a
force in the extreme metal underground for several years now. Having already released 2 critically acclaimed full lengths and an EP while essentially
being a 1-man band, Sympathy returns with a third full length that sees him reaching out and adding other musicians to the mix, including Jeff Lewis
(Abolishment of Hate, Mortification) and Jim Austin (Into Eternity) on drums. As a result, Anagogic Tyranny is the band's most cohesive sounding
album yet. Dharok takes his trademark mix of aggressive thrash, technical brutal death, and harsh black, and ups the ante with songs that take his
sound to an entirely different plain. The compositions are more complex, the playing more technical (featuring some of the fastest playing Sympathy
has ever performed), and the songs are unpredictable, as elements of black, death, thrash, doom, and orchestral elements are melded together. The
guitars are absolutely crushing, and the leads by Jeff add delicious layers and textures to the compositions. One of the biggest changes is Jim's drums,
which are powerful, aggressive, technical, and in your face. While being fast, brutal, and technical, the music can be very atmospheric at times,
featuring lush musical landscapes to keep the listener interested. Anagogic Tyranny is easily the best release that Sympathy has put out to date, and
its unpredictable, fast and furious pace will make your inner metal being giddy with pleasure. Sympathy's blackened death sound is recommended for
anyone and everyone who even thinks they are a fan of extreme metal, and fans of bands like Suffocation, Immolation, Morbid Angel, and Dimmu
Borgir will find a new favorite band to love as they are throttled with the full on brute force of Anagogic Tyranny!

Fanstastic
From beginning to end this album proves again that Sympathy is one of the most original, brutal, and talented extreme metal bands out there today. I cannot think of a circumstance that an extreme metal fan should neglect picking this up. An absolute treasure!

Anagogic Tyranny by SYMPATHY
In my opinion this is Sympathy's finest album to date. There's a certain sense of metal purity that can be heard in it. Fast, ferocious riffing, fret melting guitar solos, pummeling drum work it's all here. Also the synthesizer is in some tracks, though not as much as previous albums. An all around GREAT death metal album!!! Which is the mission it seems of SYMPATHY on every album. Check out 'Forgotten Temples' and buy this you won't be disappointed.

Great album
Since i got this album I have not taken it out of my player. Technical and brutal, great stuff from one of my favorite bands. Highly recommended.
