Biography

With their first release, the EP Patterns Of Liquid Red (October 2004), THE ANTI DOCTRINE made one thing clear: this was the beginning of a totally independent mix of various metal styles and the not less diverse types of hardcore. Their progressive approach should be emphasized as of course its not enough to just interweave different genres.

Rather its important to THE ANTI DOCTRINE to give an innovative element to this symbiosis through rhythmic complexity and their love to experiment, also to detach themselves from classic song structures and slowly create a song with a deliberate patchwork-like songwriting , always remembering to take the listener on a consistent journey.

With Patterns Of Liquid Red this working method was to become THE ANTI DOCTRINEs trade mark and will be continued on the long awaited debut album A Worldwide Elite And Its Downfall.

The album kicks off with the almost infernal A Last Analysis Before Breakdown, a cross-section of what the listener can expect on the 13 tracks: Brute chaos parts, merciless, heavy midtempo riffing, precise thundering doublebass passages and ultra brutal vocals which couldnt be more direct, meaner and more intense. Alongside the technically matured instrumentalists its the singer Carsten Albrecht who convincingly demonstrates the full force of raging shouts, guttural growls and razor sharp screams. Here and there some melodic vocals are thrown in to meet overall tastes. The band has managed to give each song on the album a personal touch. Some are more chorus-orientated like their first club single The Fraud Of Disco Culture. Others thrive on their wilful structure making songs like Riot Action oder Brain Meanders That Dont Work stand out.
