ANATOMY OF I is a progressive death metal band from the Netherlands. Mixing a wide array of influences ranging from 70’s jazz fusion to death metal into a mold of tech-thrash metal, ANATOMY OF I plays an experimental and avantgarde kind of music without losing focus and staying within straightforward songwriting.
The brainchild of vocalist/guitarist MICHAEL DORRIAN, the line-up is completed by EDWIN VAN DEN EEDEN (ex-SINISTER) on drums, ERWIN HARREMAN (SUPREME PAIN) on rhythm guitar and RODERICK RAS (HOUWITSER) on bass.
Since the release of its debut album in September 2011, the band has performed live throughout the Netherlands and abroad with the likes of CANNIBAL CORPSE, MASTER (US/CZ), DEW SCENTED (D, NL) and SADISTIK FOREST(SF), among others. While looking forward to hitting the stage in 2022, the band is currently working on recording their sophomore release.
The debut album was recorded with STEVE DI GIORGIO (TESTAMENT, DEATH) on fretless bassand DIRK VERBEUREN (MEGADETH, SCARVE) on drums.
‘The Los(t) Angered Sessions’ is not the new ANATOMY OF I album, but the band’s first unreleased studio recording from 2005/2006.
Operating under the moniker of TERMINAL EYE, the band split up between two sessions at Andy Larocque’s Los Angered Studios.
In August 2005 and January 2006, leaving guitarist and main composer MICHAEL DORRIAN to call in vocalist RUNE FOSS (Reclusion, SWE) to the studio to finish the recording, which ended up being in vain due to time constraints; the two tracks Rune was able to finish appear on this release.
During the global covid pandemic, with some downtime on his hands, it seemed like the perfect moment for DORRIAN to finish the album and have it mixed & mastered for an official release, to give fans a glimpse of an early raw version of ANATOMY OF I.
