The band’s members are now tending to different, non-music career goals,Â with vocalistÂ DheerajÂ GovindrajuÂ
Maybe music is an escapist fantasy for Wired Anxiety, consideringÂ The Delirium of NegationÂ revolves around the concept of mind-controlling monsters who developÂ a race of subservient humans.

A shift from their 2012 debut EPÂ The Eternal Maze,Â Wired Anxiety have raged their way up to more polishedÂ songwritingÂ and help fromÂ Russian sound engineerÂ ArkadyÂ Navaho to mix and masterÂ The Delirium of Negation.Â Navaho had worked with Wired Anxiety’s big influences, Russian deathÂ metallersÂ Katalepsy. To death metal die-hards, this EP is a must-listen.
