Animals As Leaders  


Animals As Leaders is the solo project of guitarist Tosin Abasi, founded around 2007 after the demise of his previous outfit, the DC metalcore band Reflux. This is a million miles from metalcore, instead this is mind-bending instrumental, jazzy, intricate progressive rock/metal, often defying description. Abasi's guitar work is incredible, jumping from genre to genre with ease, clearly a rising star in the guitar world. Simply stunning.
