Progressive metal mad men, Animals as Leaders, have returned, and with them comes “Monomyth.” The new single breaks the span of a five year silence. After the “Animals” drought the band reappears on a new label, the surging, international and independent, Sumerian Records.
Founding guitarist Tosin Abasi, Guitarist Javier Reyes and drummer Matt Garstka combine to create powerful, instrumental chaos ranging from death metal to atmospheric.
Abasi talked about “Monomyth,”
“Monomyth is part fever dream, part ritual. Its imagery represents man’s ceaseless attempts to translate transcendent ideas into movement. The conflation of struggle with meaning. Pain with significance. The ultimate failure of distilling perceived patterns in the world into knowledge.”
