Animals As Leaders – Tooth And Claw

Since Tosin Abasi’s 2009 solo debut as Animals As Leaders with self-titled record, AAL has broken the boundaries of progressive metal.

Fast-forward two-plus years to Weightless, the group’s sophomore effort, and Animals As Leaders is revered worldwide as a trailblazing pioneer of modern heavy music. The group’s genre defying compositions have earned extensive praise – Steve Vai called the band “the future of creative, heavy virtuoso guitar playing.” Guitar World Magazine also featured Abasi on the cover twice over the course of this album cycle, further cementing his legendary status within the current progressive scene.

Now in 2014, Animals As Leaders delivers what is quickly going to be hailed by fans and media alike as the group’s career defining release that will ultimately redefine the progressive world as we know it. This third full-length release is a bombastic, dynamic and innovative explosion incorporates elements spanning across the entire musical spectrum. It also marks the recording debut of drummer Matthew Garstka, whose technical proficiency and unique style allows Abasi and guitarist Javier Reyes the room to push their boundaries to previously unthinkable heights.
