Canadian thrash legends ANONYMUS announce they will be performing their first-ever live stream concert hosted by District 7 Production on September 5th from Quebec City’s L’Anti Bar. Full details on watching the virtual concert can be found here.
The live stream is in support of the band’s 12th studio album “La Bestia” via label Bam&co Heavy this past June. Known for their discography of both French and English releases, “La Bestia” is their first full length that is completely in Spanish. You may be asking why a Spanish album? Well since 3/4 of the band speaks Spanish. Drummer Carlos Araya is Chilean born, and Oscar (Lead Vocals and Bass) and Dan Souto (Guitars and Backing Vocals) are sons of Spanish immigrants it was time to make one.
The tracks on “La Bestia” were produced mainly by guitarist Jef Fortin as well as Colin Richardson who also produced 1999’s ‘Instinct’ and Jean-Francois Dagenais (Kataklysm) who produced 2006’s ‘Chapter Chaos Begins’. The album also features the bilingual song “Violencia Versus Violence” with the participation of Carlos Maldos of Lethal Creation (MX) and Arno Dhenain Le Bourhis of Black Bomb A (FR) along with a second bilingual track “Tierra” with Marco Calliari singing in Italian.

In additional news, the band unveiled their latest music video “Bicho Loco”, which means translated to English “crazy bug”. The video was directed by Mathieu Charest who previously created their music videos ‘Suffer The Consequences’, and with Mononc Serge ‘Sous-Marin Brun’, ‘L’Age de Biere’, ‘Woodstock en Beauce’. The video also stars well known Quebec actor Martin Dubreuil and follows his character as he descends into insanity from being his own worst enemy.
The video was premiered on Decibel Magazine along with a Q&A interview with Anonymus‘ Oscar Souto (Vocals and Bass). View the music video at the following link HERE.
The band adds about the track:
“A song about a virus, cancer, a disease, something that eats you from inside, that comes and goes without warning. You don’t want that thing in your life, but no matter what, it’s there and you have to live and deal with it. Resonates with what is definitely occurring worldwide as of this moment.”
And for the beer lovers out there, Anonymus also launched their own IPA beer (La Microbrasserie Le Fermentor), named in honour of their first Spanish release. Info here.
