Anime Fire Bio:
Anime Fire is one of the hardest working metalcore bands in Western Australia. Their unique mix of melodic metal, energetic hardcore, atmospheric swells and breakbeat electronica is what has grabbed the attention of many, and is the driving force behind their continually growing fan base. The band has a diverse following which reflects not only the varied influences of the band, but the personalities of its members Matty Rowe, Shaun Ngere, Marty Sims and Joel Dimasi. Having been together for five years now, they are heading in what they consider to be a more mature direction, with a focus on lyrics and structure which is quite removed from the scene which they originally emerged.
Signing with Brisbane based label Skull & Bones in 2007, Anime Fire have released two successful EP’s (Where The Wolves Fear To Tread and On The Wings Of Hope) and have spent a huge amount of time touring. Not only have they developed a multitude of loyal fans in their hometown Perth, but strong followings around the country with solid fan bases in each major capital city. They have played alongside some of the biggest names in the heavy music scene including international acts such as Bring Me the Horizon, Killswitch Engage and Darkest Hour as well as Australian heavyweights I Killed the Prom Queen, The Amity Affliction and Deez Nuts. They have been sought after enough to of had the honour of performing at Taste of Chaos 2006 and The Soundwave Festival 2008.
In 2009 the band enlisted highly regarded Danish producer Tue Madsen (August Burns Red, The Haunted, Sick Of It All) to produce ‘On The Wings Of Hope’ which Blunt Magazine then voted the Runner Up EP Of The Year. Armed with a fresh batch of material, the band is now working on their debut full-length album. In preparation they have already written and recorded two tracks with Melbourne based producer and The Red Shore axe-man Roman Koester. Later this year will see the band team up again with Madsen when he visits Australia to produce the full-length record. With a full-length in hand the band plans to heavily tour and promote the release both nationally and internationally. Until then, the band will be hard at work writing and touring Australia.
