"Anamnesis" is a song from Denver, Colorado heavy metal group, Immortal Sÿnn's upcoming sophomore album, Force of Habit (album release date pending). It is the first single to be released from that album. Recording took place at Rusty Sun Audio in Parker, CO with engineer Nick Nodurft, and is available on all major streaming and downloading platforms and at The Sÿnn Store.
While the aforementioned album, as a whole, will see the group continue into the realm of thrash metal, as seen on the previous Capitol Punishment EP, "Anamnesis" shows the more melodic side of the band and is a polished track made for radio.
The song is the first to be composed entirely, both lyrically and musically, by the band's drummer, Axel Berrios. Lyrically, the song tells the story of a man experiencing nightmares after the death of his lover, and creating a fantasy world in order to cope with the loss. The music draws its influences from traditional metal artists such as Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, with hints of some power metal mixed in as well.
Due to line-up changes after the band's 2019 summer tour, the instrumentation on the track is done entirely by drummer Axel Berrios and guitarist/founder, Tony Z. Axel handeled all drum and bass parts, while Tony Z played all guitar tracks. This single also marks the debut of new vocalist, Duel Shape, who has a style heavily-influenced by bands such as Cinderella, Dangerous Toys, and Mötley Crüe. Tony and Axel both contributed vocal harmonies to the track to coincide with Duel's ripping leads.
