Anthem will release their re-recorded greatest hits album 'Nucleus' on March 29th via Nuclear Blast. Pre-order here: http://nblast.de/AnthemNucleus
'Nucleus' will be available as 2CD and 2LP.
Recently, the band also announced their first ever European festival appearance. On April 26th-27th 2019, Anthem will play at the Keep It True festival in Germany!
Mixing and mastering of 'Nucleus' was done by established producer and engineer Jens Bogren, known for his work with a multitude of big-name artists. Jens' work is based on elaborate theories and an abundance of knowledge, which has helped guide the careers of many bands, Anthem's case is no exception. This album which features Jens' fat sound with rich low-end is more than up to par with the worldwide heavy metal standard.
A remarkable point worth noting about this release is that all of the songs except 'Venom Strike' were written after their reunion in 2001 – proving that Anthem have always has been a 'current band' that does not have to rely on their past.
This re-recorded greatest hits, which include a variety of their classics is a monumental effort, perfectly demonstrating the musical quality of Anthem and proving that they can be ranked as a top-notch band even in the international market.
