ROCK: Modern Rock, ROCK: Classic Rock
Hailing from Minneapolis, MN, Anastasis is a band with an eclectic blend of songs ranging from slow, brooding compositions to in-your-face rock and roll anthems (and all points in between). In an age of homogenized genre-specific bands, many influences and styles are represented in a still-coherent blend of musical craftsmanship. Anastasis will challenge your belief in things unseen and resurrect your appreciation of the visceral.
For the song "Need To Know":
Review title: "Good presence!"
"This track means business. Everything is crisp, tight and the conviction shines through. All the players are very competent. I enjoyed the listen."

Review title: "Punk expolosion"
"Nice rockin'' track. The vocalist seems to know what he wants to do and how to do it. Production is great on this one. I love the harmonies. The guitars blew me away. Very shredder-esque technique. My only complaint is that it ends sort of abruptly. Great job."
Review title: "Sounds mono but I love the song...?"
"With that out the way lets''s talk about the tune. The lead guitars are sweet sounding and tight & blended dead on. Solo is incredible and placed well in the song as far as arrangement goes. The drums/drummer is also at the top of his game for sure. Everything seemed to be almost computer locked you all are so togehter as far as playing and back to the drums they are power punch after power punch of slamming good fills & frills. The melody is excellent and really makes this a song to be on the look out for. It''s just to bad that for some reason the track is in mono or mayby it was a bad up load I don''t know but check into it cause this is a great song and deserves the best when it comes to mixdown quality & fullness. Great song"

For the song "I Am":
Review title: "80''s Revival?"
"Is there an 80''s metal revival going on it the USA at present? A very well structured catchy tune that could have been a minor hit in the late 80''s. A good tight sounding song with good drumming rhythm and chop''s throughout excellent harmonies and vocal melody backing a good vocalist"

Review title: "Crossover possibilities"
"You have aspects of both alternative rock and the lighter side of metal. You could definately find a crowd for this. Good vocals and melody. The rhythm is a little soft and could step up a little. I like the lyrics and the format of the song."

Review title: "Chorus me..."
"Sound quality was there as was a top performance. Always gotta love fat kick drums! Lead vocalist has a lot of talent and a great intensity. Biggest gripe with the tune is the fact that you build up so great into what I thought was going to be the chorus and it was just a screaming "yeah". I mean as a listener, I was yours for the taking at that moment but I was back in the verse moments later left without a memorable chorus to hold on to. Guitars over the bridge were awesome. Overall a nice track that could easily be one of the best!"
Review title: "James Hetfield"
"The vocals sound like James Hetfield singing pop/rock. This is different - you sound original for sure. The song has a catchy sound & band sounds good."
Arkansas City, Kansas
Review title: "She doesnt like people who act stupid"
"Anyway, great song, vocals, melody, and rhythm are all really good. Great work indeed, keep up the good work."

"While Anastasis is guided by the heartfelt vocals and lyrical message of Dave Coleman, it revels in the wails and melodies that fly from the fingers of guitarists Rodney Zimmerman and Carl Bailey. My World, Her World, His World, Your World openers "Trickster" and "I Am" seem like pretty straight-ahead hard rockers — there might be a bit of a Queensrÿche influence here — but they soon make their mark with interesting melodic left turns from the guitarists. "Give in to Love" opts for an acoustic main riff, supported by a combo of chunky distortion and intricate harmonic work, while the woven vocal harmonies of "Carpe Diem [Run Away]" give way to a soaring chorus. As a vocalist, Coleman has boundless energy. However, he has a tendency to actually oversing — on cuts like "My Creation," it''s like he gets carried away in the spiritual themes of his lyrics. The guitars too, for all their multi-faceted shrieking, can be a little much over 17 tracks. But they never overstay their welcome, dutifully supporting Coleman''s moods with an inventive array of tones and colors. My World, Her World adjusts fluidly between the rousing, Staind-style ballad "Betrayal," and the stinging lead riff and upbeat rhythm of "Light of Day [Revelation]," not to mention the crackling guitar pop (and handclaps) of "Juliet." Sure to appeal to guitar fans, Anastasis should also find favor among those faithful to Coleman''s uplifting message."
