Biography

Anthropia is a French speed epic progressive metal band. They’ve released their 1st album (“The Ereyn Chronicles Part I - The Journey of Beginnings”) in 2006.

Anthopia mentions nymphs, dwarves, dragons, witches, and magic spells to rock fans and it immediately smirks and conjures an image of the satirical band Spinal Tap– or something equally or far more geeky and unhip.

What if we told you that French prog metal band Anthropia has written an epic composition that is inhabited by blacksmith dwarves, mocking sprites, mercenary barbarians, a talking horse, a cunning succubus, and seaweed-intolerant dragons (among other creatures) in a cross-dimensional fictional plotline? Still chuckling? Well, stop, because the mastermind of Anthropia, Hugues Lefebvre (nickname Hugo), is reviving the rock fantasy genre and ups the ante with the explosive, multi-layered first installment of a planned trilogy — The Ereyn Chronicles: Part I: The Journey of Beginnings, based on the writings of Quentin Borderie.

“I was not a huge fan of fantasy, but I was so truly captivated by Quentin’s story that I wrote music around it.” Hugo says.

Hugo realized that the only way to capture the many nuances of the story was to write and record three separate records to coincide with the exciting episodes that sprang from Borderie’s fertile mind. “With an in-depth story like this, we felt the best way to present the main events of the story was to separate them into three major parts,” Hugo says.
