Prog behemoths Anta have been perfecting their brand of mountain climbing song architecture since 2010. Thick, essential drumming and thundering bass copulate with intertwining guitar and organ work that takes on a near-regal expression. The colossal units debut album, “The Tree That Bears The Equine Fruit”, is a determined, dexterous and energetic stampede through towering riffdom and infectious slabs of rhythm without respite that will have devotees of Univers Zero and Magma stroking their beards in delight. Featuring the most unusual bass playing style ever witnessed, Anta’s ceremonial tribute to the altar of prog is the only Sunday service you need feel guilty of missing. Praise the riff.
