Arisen From Nothing

What's it mean? The band name has always been a notion to the mythical phoenix that can't be beaten. In death or defeat, it experiences a rebirth in fire and rises again greater than before. We have always been big fans of rising to the next challenge and overcoming obstacles, so it seemed a perfect fit!

Lowdown

Broken is out, and the word is spreading... it will blow you away! It is heavier than ever before and is distinctly more modern while maintaining AFN's trade mark groove and accessibility. Be sure to check out the video for Chaos!

NEW RELEASE

"Broken"( September 29, 2017)

Broken




What's on the cover? The broken snake is older than the republic, a quick bit of research and you'll learn that we are offering a bit of social commentary. Though the original broken snake included the phrase "join or die" the underlying message is similar to what we are dealing with nationally today!

BROKEN IS AVAILABLE AT THE FOLLOWING:



iTunes | Google Play | CD Baby | Amazon | Collective Wave | Garage Band

About the Album

Broken is all new AFN, it's heavier, it's more driving, but we would describe the album as our own twist on modern heavy metal, we've done our best to deliver an element of groove throughout the songs that you can bob your head and tap your foot to, while remaining aggressive and fast enough mosh to. There are rich melodic choruses, and a lot of underlying complexity held withing the melody in the riffs and drums that you feel in your chest.

The Songs

1. Chaos – This song was always meant to open the album due to the long string intro that starts the song, the song isn’t very fast but has a groove element and lyrical content that we felt should be the first thing people hear. It has small amounts of all the new sounds the band has evolved into.

2. American Patriot – This is quite clearly our “patriotic” song, it's quite a bit faster than the opening track and a bit meaner. The first track doesn’t have any actual main solo, this track has a long solo that goes with the theme of the lyrics, funny enough that wasn’t intentional at all.

3. Better Off Dead – This is actually the first track written for the EP, this song starts with a simple synthesizer melody as the drums build up and the first riffs hit. The goal behind this song was to create something that was aggressive and in your face but didn’t lose its sense of melody.

4. Falling From Grace – This song was the fastest song written from a compositional perspective, the rhythm and lead guitars, bass and drums were finished in 3 days. This song was intended to just be a good old fashioned “rock” style metal song. Nothing too fancy going on, just some straight ahead fast riffs, intense drumming and a good solid vocal melody on the chorus. This is the second fastest song on the album, clocking in at 185 bpm.

5. Born Hated – This was the very last song written for the EP and definitely the fastest at 212 bpm. With a name like “Born Hated” it’s safe to assume this is the most “metal” song out of the 5. This track was written only a few weeks before hitting the studio. This one has a lot more fast single note riffs and heavy double bass drumming. As soon as it was finished we knew it had to close out the album, we wanted to end with a bang and we felt this song fit that goal.
