Animator Thrash Metal / Co. Dublin

Editor Notes:

Thrash band from New Ross in Wexford who originally started out under the name HERESY sometime around 2009, from what I can gather. They released their first three track demo/EP in 2010 title “Open Your Eyes”. This was followed up in 2013 with their rather excellent debut full length album, “Blacklisted”. The band recentely released their latest EP, “The Venom Within” in 2017 and have also just represented Ireland at the Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany.

Official Facebook Biography…

ANIMATOR enjoy devastating the listener’s ears with a one-two punch of classic thrash metal mixed with bits of crossover. These guys line up some killer riffs, solid drums, nice solos, and dynamics that push their brand of searing metal songs over the top. Professional, tight and completely bad-ass.
