Finnish-born, London based and former Stereo Junkies frontman Anzi has returned with his second full-length album ‘Black Dog Bias’. Taking the title from the sad known prejudices of black dogs that are currently being destroyed due to their breeds and colour, which is happening in animal shelters, ‘Anzi’ have expressed his opinion in the only way he can; through extreme industrial alternative noise!

This album was written and recorded at various locations, including Helsinki, London, New York and Egypt and was self-produced to a really high standard and sound quality, before mastering was done by Dave Collins [QOTSA, Soundgarden, Alice Cooper] while the finishing touches were added by many other collaborators including; Ben Christo [Sisters of Mercy] Ike Chime and Anzi’s ex-wife – ex Playboy playmate Katariina Souri who helped co-write some of the lyrics.

The album kicks off to a great and catchy beat, which immediately grabs your attention, with ‘Anzi’ demonstrating his own unique take of industrial punk pop, throwing in some dark malice, synthpop hooks, dramatic and memorable melodies with low tuned guitars, making this release a hit, which I’m sure will grab the attention of listeners, making them want to hit the dancefloor.

Blended together are diverse influences covering many genres such as Alternative/Rock/Pop/Punk/Industrial with each track having its own individuality and all blended into each other perfectly, giving these genres a good, modern sound.

With such a vast arire of genres, this is an album that will appeal to many and certainly an album worth checking out! This is one album I will be humming to all day!
