BAMF Spotlight: Endings for Anastasia
Saturday, June 11, 2011 Leave a comment
Every week, Wrecked will be highlighting 2-3 bands playing the upcoming Bay Area Metal Festival. This week we’ve got Endings for Anastasia, a metalcore band from Belmont, CA.
Endings for Anastasia comes raging onto the scene with a new-school, in your face, kick your ass and ask questions late kind of attitude. These guys like to throw down the gauntlets with their breakdowns and uppercut you Street-Fighter style with their angsty, pissed-off lyrics. They’ve got a slower, groovier style than most bands in their genre, but that doesn’t mean they’re not just as heavy. You can count on these guys to put on a high-energy show, especially at the upcoming BAMF Festival this July. Make sure you order your tickets soon, so you don’t miss out on these guys, and all the other great bands playing!

Sometimes it takes a strong internal conflict to realize just how far you have come. For metalcore fivepeice Endings for Anastasia, the end of 2010 brought about much upheaval and distress. After parting ways with former frontman Joe Cronin (now of Death of a Legend) the four remaining members decided to push forward. Enlisting the help of guitar wonder and producer Nick Loiacono (of It Starts With Alaska), the band quickly filled the void for a full lineup. While Nick’s pledge only consisted of live shows, as well as recording and producing the band’s debut EP, former guitarist Nick L’Heuruex was more than willing to step up to the plate and fill the open spot for the band’s frontman position.
The road has been a long one for these young musicians but it is a road that all have continued to forge ahead on, keeping the same work ethic and attitude toward music, yet introducing a lighter, more fun outlook on the direction they are headed. “After enduring a slump and some big changes, this band is eager to get back to the things that people know them for; the crushing songwriting, confident attitude, and epic live performances that this band possesses now more than ever” says lead guitar player Evan Radkey. With their debut self-titled EP scheduled for realease in early 2011, Endings for Anastasia remains a force to be reckoned with in the Bay Area metal scene.
