“All Is Not For All” follows their critically acclaimed debut album “Worm’s Eye View” released in 2011. The new album is an uncompromising collection of carefully calculated songs with an esoteric approach to the instrumentation, and masterful compositions on this release. “All Is Not For All” effortlessly melds elements of progressive metal with power, death, and even thrash metal to solidify their own unique sound. If you listen closely to the music of Anuryzm you may even hear elements and an underlying familiarity of bands that have influenced Anuryzm …….over the years, touches of Opeth, Megadeth, Iron Maiden and even Queensrÿche make for an incredibly compelling listen.
Anuryzm have released two singles from the new album the first single “Humanoid” was released April 12th 2015. “Humanoid” is a Sci-Fi epic about being watched by intelligent ETs. They recognize that humans are a flawed and doomed species. They question whether they started us off on the right path to technological awakening or whether it was a mistake to give away knowledge. The second single Depolarized” was released May 18, 2015. The song is about the world shifting polarities and the cataclysmic results of such developments. This can also be easily reduced to relate to the human condition.“
Anuryzm have raised an army of venerable musicians from the music world to take up arms on the new album, with guest collaborations from the likes of Michael Lepond (Symphony X), Uri Dijk (Textures & Ethereal), Charlie Zeleny (Whiplash), and interestingly, Christopher Chaplin (actor, musician and the youngest son of the late icon Charlie Chaplin) who plays Cello on “Oceans Apart”.
According to the band, “Thematically the album’s songs span a variety of topics including humbleness, nanotechnology, illness, astral projection, extraterrestrial encounters, love, longing and remorse, third culture upbringing, displacement and Japanese warrior code (Bushido) to name a few.” KERRANG! Magazine recently featured “All Is Not For All” as album sleeve of the week!!
This is definitely one of those albums where the more times you listen to it, the more you hear. It’s a lot to take in, too intense maybe to be able to highlight and appreciate the key moments. There’s so much going on that there’s a risk of being left in the headlights. It’s also like walk through a sweet shop, such is the colour and variety on offer. Without doubt, this is a work of high quality.

All Is Not For All was my introduction to Anuryzm. It was a damn good and solid introduction. It makes you hunger and thirst for more. All Is Not For All has a wonderful vibe about it where you are now in anticipation to hear it in a live setting. Trust me I am not kissing anyone’s ass here. I am giving this a 5/5 for the skillful mastery and the overall arrangement of the tracks as they lay on the album.
