Album Review: The Anix-'Revenge'
Los Angeles electronic rock artist and producer The Anix continues to evolve and crush the bending of electronic and rock genres with his latest album release Revenge via FiXT.
When it comes to The Anix, evolution just comes as second-hand nature to his creative process. Constantly using a myriad of musical genres to convey his musical roots and his journey as a musician, The Anix does this and more with his latest album release, Revenge. Consisting of 15 emotionally pulsating tracks in total, The Anix does not hold back nor limit his creative genius with his audio design, instrumentalism, or lyrical soundscape.
“Fans of The Anix will love the single "Follow." Gorgeous does not even begin to explain how stunning the audio design and colorfully decadent the soundscapes are in this track. Lyrically one of the best tracks on Revenge, many will seek this track out more than once for a listen.”
Revenge begins with the gripping hit single "My Eyes." Enveloping us with subdued grunge undertones and electronic-infused environments, "My Eyes" feels dirty instrumentally but also planetarily expansive. The Anix exposes us to another level of musicianship and artistry before the album has even begun to take shape.
Revenge continues to garner more explosive energy with the second track, "Below," only to get invested a for heavy-hitter of a track, "Quicksand," featuring INHUMAN. A dynamic display of gritty, melancholic alternative rock at its finest bathed in beautiful synth nuances, The Anix continues to do what he does best within one album, evolve.
Fans of The Anix will love the single "Follow." Gorgeous does not even begin to explain how stunning the audio design and colorfully decadent the soundscapes are in this track. Lyrically one of the best tracks on Revenge, many will seek this track out more than once for a listen.
"Want You Like I Do" changes up the energy on the album and is a welcome distraction. Feeling richly distinctive, bass-heavy, and denuded in nature, The Anix shows that he can switch up instrumental fervor very effectively without destroying the vibes of the record.
Many will come to love his rendition of the Pixies track, "Where Is My Mind." Feeling nostalgic, imaginative, and dreamy, it's a beautiful way to end an already successful journey and re-emergence the artist has established for the new year. For those looking for an album that audaciously conquers blending electronic and rock genres in one enjoyable sitting, Revenge is for you.
