Chicago’s AFTERMATH is one of the pioneering crossover Thrash bands of the 1980s: a band that transformed into one of the most technical Thrash Metal bands of its time on its critically-acclaimed debut album, "Eyes Of Tomorrow".

Time to wake up!

AFTERMATH published the latest lyric video "Scientists And Priest" on November 2, 2019. It's the 6th official video for the new album "There Is Something Wrong".

"People find false comfort in either science or religion”, vocalist Kyriakos 'Charlie' Tsiolis comments the thematic context of "Scientists And Priest".
"The institutions have been corrupted and are used to divide the masses into two camps. It’s the perfect scam having people argue over what’s the truth. The truth is that organized religion and science are full of shit and used to deceive us and keep us fighting each other. Institutions are tools of suppression and none are better at it than the ones telling us to worship false idols and blindly believe in fake science."

Know your enemy!

AFTERMATH published the lyric video "Temptation Overthrown" on August 23, 2019. It's the 5th official video for the new album "There Is Something Wrong".

"In the album's concept story timeline, 'Temptation Overthrown' is at the point when the masses have been truly informed and are united. They know who the enemy really is and it's time for the people to control." (Kyriakos 'Charlie' Tsiolis)

Counteracting awakening

The formation published the lyric video 'Gaslight' on June 25, 2019. It's the 4th official video for the new album "There Is Something Wrong". The video was produced by Great Heights Design Video Studio.

'To Gaslight someone' means to manipulate a person into questioning their own sanity. The song and video are integral parts of the greater message behind the ambitious concept album "There Is Something Wrong".

"The song is about waking up and having an open-mind in order to avoid the elite’s attempt to Gaslight you", says frontman Kyriakos 'Charlie' Tsiolis. "'Gaslight' tells the real rulers of the world we are on to their ways and we will destroy them and their symbols."

The new album "There Is Something Wrong" is an 11-song opus of TECHNICAL PROGRESSIVE THRASH METAL.

A concept record in the truest sense of the word, the album features a mix of old-school crossover Thrash and technical/progressive Metal, and is a commentary on what is wrong with the world today.

A calling out of the masses to wake up and know the real enemy. The music is urgent, and the lyrics challenge the listener to seek the truth. In a world of monotonous uniformity, AFTERMATH stands out alone.
