Annon Vin biography
ANNON VIN were a short-lived progressive metal trio from Hesse, Germany. They consisted of Erik Groesch (Guitars, Vocals, currently in MEKONG DELTA, STRAIGHT FROM HELL), Tom BRENNEIS (Vocals, Bass, SCHAFFRATH, THE LIFELONG PROJECT) and Uwe RUPPEL (Vocals, Drums, AMITAV, ex-TELLTALEHARD). After a demo cassette in 1991 and the EP ''Higher Spheres'' in 1993, they released their only full album ''A New Gate'' in 1996, produced by Zardoz music and Ralph HUBERT, the mastermind behind legendary prog-thrash metal band MEKONG DELTA.

Not unsurprisingly, ANNON VIN's music draws influence from the then flourishing German prog metal scene and particularly bands such as MEKONG DELTA and SIEGES EVEN and comes highly recommended to fans of technical progressive metal.

Review by Ovidiu

4 stars Definitelly,this is a masterpiece album and it could be considered a forgotten musical pearl!ANNON VIN managed to release only this album in their short career,but what a damn good album they made!A NEW GATE is heavily influenced by SIEGES EVEN-we can call it ANNON VIN being a copy of the wellknown technical prog metal band-now disbanded unfortunatelly-but,they had a better vocalist than Thomas Herde,the awful vocalist of SIEGES EVEN on the first 2 albums!What we have on this album is a display of technical capacities of this 3 young and ambitious musicians-sometimes we can feel that they try to do a little more of what they are able to do-pushing the technical aspect of this album at an unbelieveble level!The whole audition of the album is a test of will,but ,in the end we can say that this album is almost a masterpiece!Amazing technical chops,twists,change of rhytms-impressive bass lines and an almost scarry versatility of the drummer !The guitarist/vocalist is out of this planet too-he is totally impressive when we think that the guy is in charge vith the vocal duties ,plus the sophisticated guitar work-WOW!!!Hard to say which song is the best one-all the album is a difficult to chew album,and there are necessary many auditions,and to dig deep into it ,to understand the complexity and meanings of such a fantastic album!Very good production,an uninspired cover-but the music is fabulous!4.75 stars for me!
