Not familiar with Ænimus? Well the five piece Groove/Tech Deathcore group come from the birthplace of both thrash and the circle pit… the Bay Area in Northern California. Since their inception in late Summer 2010, the band has released a 3 song demo while writing their debut full-length, had their song “The Grasp of Ruin” featured in the video game ‘Supremacy MMA,’ and SO much more. The guys once again hit the road in late June for a run of California dates, and will kick off their south west “Transcend Reality” tour in August 2013 to support the release of the album.
