The band is composed of Ryan Freeman, lead vocals and acoustic/electric guitars, Johnny Rowland, vocals, lead and rythmn acoustic and electric guitars, J.J. Goncz, vocals and bass guitar, and Jason Michael Eldredge, drums and percussion. The disc was recorded at Suspect Studios in Sunnyvale, CA and was co-produced by Anatomic and Dave Gakle.
Anatomic is a reformed version of long-time SF Bay Area favorite Shy Tiger, and retains the melodic hard rock style and high-energy delivery that made Shy Tiger so popular in the Bay Area club scene."In For the Thrill" is the follow-up to Shy Tiger's last release, entitled "Feed the Kitty", which was also a Suspect Recordings release. That disc received regional accolades which earned the band opening slots for Bon Jovi, Night Ranger, Y & T, Ace Frehley, as well as other headliners. After taking time off to write and rehearse new material, the band is back with a new name, and a new aggressive attitude that is sure to win them more new fans.
Anatomic is currently showcasing these tunes, as well as new material, at clubs in the Sacramento, SF Bay and Los Angeles areas.
Music Connection Magazine (3/17/03)- "In fact, their songs are masterful and engaging. This act has a solid grasp on this type of material and, like it or not, their appeal is infectious. This band deserves to be heard."
Metal Kingdom (1/27/03)- "All in all a great album that already has the most important aspects - talent and good music."
Heart of the Rock (11/24/02)- "Overall it's clear that Anatomic has sensibly tried to create an individual sound on 'In For the Thrill', and the result is an album of enjoyable melodic rock as perfected by Bon Jovi, Firehouse and Def Leppard."
Rock United (9/1/02)- "This is arena rock straight from the late 80s with catchy hooks and sing-a-long choruses, very much in the tradition of Firehouse or White Lion. This is overall as good if not better than your average releases by the European melodic hardrock labels. You really need to check this out if you're into the above mentioned bands or style, as this pretty much rocks."
