“Doing something original when the most commercially viable option is to do exactly the opposite requires large testicles and a strong sense of identity.” - Metal Hammer (on Ana Kefr) “It’s clear from the word ‘go’ that the very last thing they’re interested in is playing to singalong industry/scene expectation. In spite of the epic scope of the music, the songs are rooted firmly at street level. Ana Kefr never get lost in their own brilliance.” - Brave Words and Bloody Knuckles Ana Kefr banded mid-2008 with founding members Kyle Coughran and Rhiis D.
