Biography

Intense. Brutal. Uncompromising. Just a few words to describe the sound and presence of Brooklyn, New York Metal ensemble Anaka. Since its inception in late 2000, Anaka has left a blistering mark in the Heavy Metal and Hard Rock scene around North America and overseas. Its first full length record release off Godsend Records in 2004, “Rust & Jade”, proved so as it received outstanding praise from music fans around the world as well as major label representatives. Anaka followed that with another mammoth release in 2009 titled “The Glorified Crusade”. The record made a crushing impact on Hard Rock radio in August of that year by achieving TOP 20 positions on both FMQB Commercial Metal Radio and CMJ Loud Rock charts.

Both records received (and in several markets still are) considerable airplay at numerous radio stations, especially in the New York City area. This catapulted Anaka to many sold-out performances at renowned venues in Irving Plaza, Gramercy Theatre, Highline Ballroom, Bowery Ballroom, Starland Ballroom, Knitting Factory, Count Basie Theatre, Don Hill’s and CBGB’s. To date, Anaka has opened for such acts as Five Finger Death Punch, Shadows Fall, Otep, Unearth and Life of Agony.

In September 2007, Anaka’s biggest impact at that time was the music video release of the RUST & JADE title track. Directed by Kevin J. Custer (Testament, Hatebreed, Overkill, Madball, Lacuna Coil, etc.
