Anatoth / Bio

Anatoth is a heavy metal band formed in 2009 from Cleveland, Ohio. We have been labeled Modern Thrash and Groove Metal by our fans and peers. The message of our songs are clear yet able to be interpreted by the listeners. The name of the band is based on the biblical city in which refugees could take shelter from the war of a changing world. In that regard, we are here to be shelter for those
who seeks classic true metal in a changing world of aggression.

Anatoth consists of Derek LaVan (Guitar/Vocals), Rosario Welles (lead Guitar/ Backing vocals), Rick Williams (Bass), and Jeff Costick (Drums). Together, we have put our years of training together to make music that can reach across all genres, touching on the desires of a true Metal Head and the casual ear of a pop lover.

With the help of producer Curran Murphy (Nevermore, Annihilator), Anatoth has created their debut album (Burn Your Wings), which is a resonating sound in the world of Metal. We currently released our demo/album (A Killer Among Us Part 1) which we believe has furthered our message and has pushed the limits of the current metal beliefs. Anatoth was created to change the trends of Heavy Metal and we will never stop until our goal reached. We are METAL.
