Fearless to be released on Tape!

We are happy to announce that our latest album Fearless will be released in a limited quantity by Winter Solace Productions on tape. This is a first for us and we’re excited as hell!

Here’s what Winter Solace has to say about it:

“Of all the release I have done, this one will be one of my favorites to go back and listen to when I am old. This was the single greatest album of 2015, which was not surprisingly shot under the radar despite being supported by the Mexican Official Historical Society. Prog/Death,Thrash with Jazz Fusion music with Latin instruments. This album is being prasied by actual press as the only metal album to come out of Mexico that is truly Mexican.”

Angry Metal Guy Reviewed Fearless

“Simply put, Fearless is a tour de force of nearly everything I love in music. It has the intensity and intelligence of Death and Cynic, the rhythmic tomfoolery of Meshuggah, the adventurousness of The Mars Volta, incisive lyrics of Gaza or Gojira, and heaps of Latin flavor that I grew up playing in so many school jazz bands. It’s so fresh it makes Genghis Tron look like Bloodbath and so fun it makes Revocation look like the National Society of Accountants.”

Many thanks to Kronos for taking the time to review us!

Another Review for Fearless (This Time by No Clean Singing)

“A number of you have certainly heard Elements, the final album by Atheist before they broke up in the ’90s. It was a record on which the band tapped more strongly into their fusion, Latin, and jazz influences. I’m as much a fan of it as the other Atheist releases, but even if you aren’t, imagine that sound Atheist went after on Elements mixed with a mid-’90s to early-2000’s death/thrash alongside a ripping melodic death metal influence.”

We’re stoked to have Fearless reviewed by the guys at No Clean Singing, you can go here to read the entire post.

Fearless Reviewed by Pure Grain Audio

Our brand new album got a great review from the guys at Pure Grain Audio, how cool! Here it is:

Mexico’s Acrania is a true Prog/Extreme Metal beast. Theirs is a unique combination of manic rhythmical patterns, Afro Cuban sounds, twisted riffing, Jazz-like ambiances, and an unparalleled use of brass instrumentation. Bearing all this in mind, it becomes obvious why they chose to name of their latest album Fearless.

Recorded in the band’s hometown (Mexico City), partly financed with the help of the state’s cultural institutions, and featuring stunning artwork by German artist, Eliran Kantor, Fearless unashamedly showcases many cultural self-references and dares to break some genre conventions. For example, in tracks “People Of The Blaze” and “Hypocritical Conflict”, the brass instruments become a leading voice, replacing guitar solos and adding a new level of mayhem. The use of the aforementioned percussion and Jazzy patterns also introduces additional kinetic drive and a unmistakable Latin flavor.

Acrania clearly wants to make a point with this album. This quintet is not afraid to showcase their commanding musical virtuosity, highly-skilled songwriting, and overall creativity. Now the world needs to take notice and embrace them. They could be on the brink of becoming the next Cynic or Atheist, but on steroids… Seriously.
