Anger Is A Gift are a four piece that formed in 2002. Taking elements of Old
School Funk, Hip-Hop and Modern Metal they have created a distinct sound,
often finding comparisons to bands, such as Rage Against The Machine and
Incubus, whilst retaining a strong sense of originality.
Over the past three years the band and their sound has continued to evolve
on the local music scene, with a strong fanbase in and around their
surrounding areas. Anger combines and energetic live show with their hybrid
rap-metal funk and have also been head hunted to support signed acts such as
<209>. Fony, Sixty-Mile Smile, My Deaf Audio and Xisloaded. They have also
played on the main stage at “Open Minded Music Fest ‘04”, “Brentwood Dirty
Dozen” and the “Figbat Katie Creed Festival”.
2005 found Anger entering the studio to record their first fully produced
E.P. “Keep Hope A Lie”. With the first batch of copies selling out in one
night, “Keep Hope A Lie” has sparked interest from numerous promoters across
the country as well as receiving praise from music critics:
“Vocally the singer sounds good, passionate and in touch with the anger that
clearly drives this band on!!
Musically talented and with a bright future, Anger Is A Gift are set to
dominate the rap rock world in years to come.

Get hold of a copy of “Keep Hope A Lie” ... its definitely worth owning,
very pleasing on the ear and a breathe of fresh air to the scene.”
