Intense. Brutal. Uncompromising. Just a few words to describe the sound and presence of
Brooklyn, New York Metal ensemble AnAkA. Since its inception in late 2000, Peter Pallis
(founder, songwriter and originator) of AnAkA has lead the bands ground breaking charge as
they’ve left a blistering mark on the Heavy Metal genre worldwide. Their first full length record
release off Godsend Records in 2004, "Rust & Jade", proved so as it received outstanding praise
from music fans around the world as well as major label representatives. AnAkA followed that
with another mammoth release in 2009 titled "The Glorified Crusade". The record made a
crushing impact on Hard Rock radio in August of that year by achieving Top 20 positions on
both FMQB Commercial Metal Radio and CMJ Loud Rock charts.
This catapulted AnAkA to many sold-out performances at renowned venues in Nikon Jones
Beach Theatre, Webster Hall's Grand Ballroom, Irving Plaza, Gramercy Theatre, Highline
Ballroom, Bowery Ballroom, Starland Ballroom, Knitting Factory, Santos Party House, Count
Basie Theatre, Saint Vitus, Stage 48, 89 North Music Venue, Don Hill's, The Continental,
The Bitter End, L’amours and CBGB's. To date, AnAkA has opened for such acts as Korn, Avenge Sevenfold,
Trivium, Asking Alexandria, FiveFinger Death Punch, Disturbed, Shadows Fall, Otep, Unearth, Ill Nino,
Fozzy, Diamond Head, Lordi, and Life of Agony.
In September 2007, AnAkA's biggest impact at that time was the music video release of the Rust
& Jade title track. Directed by Kevin J. Custer (Testament, Hatebreed, Overkill, Madball, Lacuna
Coil, etc.), Rust & Jade received airplay in several international markets including MTV Latino,
covering every country in South America and Central America, and portions of the United States
in Florida, Texas and California. The video was also featured on Music Choice's Video On
Demand Rock channel in April 2008.
AnAkA's skills and success are not only revered in the music scene. In June 2008, ANAKA was
given the honor to create the theme music for former World Wrestling Federation Champion The
Ultimate Warrior in his return to the ring in Barcelona, Spain. The theme music track was aptly
entitled The Ultimate Return.
AnAkA once more had Kevin J. Custer on board to direct the first video off "The Glorified
Crusade", Erase. Erase hit national and international television and internet stations with full
force in the Spring/Summer of 2010. It received astounding praise by being the #1 most viewed
video in May 2010 on MTVMusic. The video also collected hundreds of thousands of views on
Music Choice, VH1, MTV Latino and many other outlets.
In May of 2011, AnAkA re-released a 10 Year Anniversary, Remixed/Remastered, Special
Edition version of their very first studio release; "Down Devil's Road" (original recorded in
2001). They then fearlessly reveled in the unknown releasing their "Into The Great Unknown
'The Acoustic Sessions'" Album in January of 2012.
On November 7th, 2014 AnAkA proudly announced the first release off of the bands upcoming
fifth studio album. This first single entitled "The Father Time Trilogy" features a performance by
the Ultimate one himself, Warrior! This epic release is a tribute to the memory of Peter’s late
great friend, mentor, and longtime AnAkA supporter, the legendary hall of fame, professional
wrestler and champion... The Ultimate Warrior. Warrior performs spoken word on this epic
"Warrior was my childhood hero, and eventual great friend and mentor. Our connection and how
it all came to be was truly a rare and amazing gift in my life. This song is about honoring him,
what he believed, and how he lived his powerful life. I will carry him with me always." – Peter
Pallis of AnAkA.
In February of 2015 AnAkA released their highly anticipated new full length album "THE
UNWAVERING" after once again working with their long time producer The Jerry Farley.
This latest incarnation in the evolution and upbringing of the ANAKA sound
is the heaviest/thrashiest album the band has ever done. "The Unwavering" is the band fifth full
length studio album release. Upon the album's first week released to radio it quickly charted at
the #1 most added album, and peaked at #11 on the CMJ radio charts across the nation.
In February of 2016 AnAkA latest music video DEATHBORN from “The Unwavering” album
once again directed by Kevin J. Custer was picked up by MTV, VH1 & CMT. Peter Pallis also
reached another powerful milestone being signed to an ESP Guitar Endorsement.
“It is truly an honor proudly carrying the banner of ESP Guitars. ESP make the greatest guitars on
the planet. They have been the corner stone instrument of many of the great musicians that inspired us and
helped pave the way. Honoring our forefather is extremely important to us.” – Peter Pallis of AnAkA
is endorsed by ESP Guitars.
As of May of 2016 Peter Pallis of ANAKA is now a proud part of Kirk Hammett of Metallica's
KHDK Guitar Pedal Company family! MASSIVE thanks go out to David, Kirk and all the great people
at KHDK for this amazing endorsement. It's a true honor! Weapon of Choice: The KHDK Ghoul Screamer
