Anthriel - Biography




Anthriel is a progressive metal band from Finland. Anthriel's music can be described as sort of a neo-classical band with metal and progressive influences. Still it's Anthriel so it's hard to categorize the music to represent only one genre. Anthriel's music is Timo Niemisto's handwriting from many parts. Timo has usually the basic ideas and song structures in mind to which other band members contribute with their own ideas, arrangements and opinions. Thats what makes Anthriel. The band was formed in 2004 by Timo Niemisto, Antti Hakulinen and Jari Kuokkanen. Anthriel continued seeking balance when Simo Silvan, the new lead singer, joined the group in the end of 2008.

The band signed with Lion Music and later released their full-length debut, The Pathway, on September 17, 2010.
