Search Results for "Arsis"

Tech death tyrants Arsis have thankfully returned this year with Visitant, a much anticipated new release out in Nov. from the consistently dope labels Agonia Records and Nuclear Blast. The new video for ‘Tricking The Gods’ has some Satan invades star trek borderline moments, but is that a bad thing? Hell no.

Love the lead tones (is that a George Lynch tiger spirit infused guitar or what?) and psycho-charged arrangement in this tune, powered by some serious chops and guttural evil from James Malone. Expect this record should make quite a big red splash. This band always seemed more sincere about their craft than some others, so I am looking forward to this. My punk friends Nightmares For A Week also have an album out this late 2018 which , like Arsis, marks 5 years between releases and y’know, sometimes it really is worth the wait for career milestone material. Kudos to all.

“We had a pretty strong touring cycle for the last album, Unwelcome,” says Malone. “Then, I got involved in Necromancing the Stone. It wasn’t taking up too much time since I wasn’t the main songwriter. It was more of a fun outlet for me, a chance for me to get on stage and play without having to do both guitar and vocals. I didn’t expect Necromancing the Stone to get signed and to go on tour, but all of that ended up happening. That took time obviously, but then Brandon [Ellis] ended up joining The Black Dahlia Murder. It took me awhile to get my wits about me to the point where I wanted to concentrate on a new Arsis record. The time it took to regroup was very much needed.”

Music: Arsis streams title track off upcoming album

Posted by tyrusrunyan on Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at 7:01 PM (PST)

arsisheaderVirginia tech metal band Arsis have released the title track off of their upcoming album Unwelcome. Unwelcome is the bands fifth studio album and is set for release via Nuclear Blast on April 30th.

You can listen to it here.

Founder, guitarist and vocalist James Malone stated the following:
“So, we’ve had ‘Unwelcome’ finished for quite some time now and we are happy to finally be able to share the finished product with everyone,”

“As a band/musician, it’s sometimes difficult to separate yourself from your work and visualize how others are going to interpret your work. In other words, it’s sometimes hard to know whether or not your ideas are relevant to anyone but yourself. With ‘Unwelcome’, we certainly put all of our everything into the writing and recording and stopped paying attention to what’s trendy or what we think might appeal to a larger audience. In doing so, I feel we have created one of the most sincere Arsis albums and perhaps one of the most relevant.”

Unwelcome will be the fifth studio album from Arsis and the follow up to the 2010 release, Starve For The Devil.  The band also released a free digital EP called Lepers Caress in late 2012.  You can find it at Scion A/V by clicking right here.

Arisis announces new guitarist

Posted by tyrusrunyan on Friday, November 9, 2012 at 1:58 PM (PST)

Technical death metal band Arsis have announced their new guitarist. You can read their statement below.

Official press release:

Virginia-based melodic tech-death metal masters Arsis, are pleased to officially announce Brandon Ellis as their new guitarist. Brandon has toured with the band in the past but will finally make his recording debut with Arsis’ upcoming full-length release. Brandon replaces guitarist Nick Cordle who was recently tapped to replace Christopher Amott in Swedish supergroup, Arch Enemy.

“I am super happy to say that Brandon Ellis has recently become the new lead guitarist for Arsis,” commented vocalist/guitarist Jim Malone. “Not only is he one of the best musicians that I have been able to work with, but he shares my passion for all things that are 80’s metal, including ridiculously tacky paint jobs on guitars. I am beyond excited about writing new material with Brandon. Until then, listen for his shredilicious leads on the upcoming Arsis full length. Come check him out live with Arsis this December!”

“Initially when Nick joined Arch Enemy, we all thought we could make it work with him having the time for both bands,” continued bassist Noah Martin. “Things unfortunately overlapped and we weren’t able to work on the new album with him. We appreciate everything he’s done for Arsis. We’ll miss our friend greatly and do wish him all the best. Both Nick and Ryan Knight (The Black Dahlia Murder), contributed ridiculous leads for the album.

Brandon’s solos on this full-length are both crushing and particularly creative. His presence, along with Shawn’s (Priest – drums), were integral to the tone of this album. We’re in the post-production stage, now that the masters were just finished. In the meantime, come have beers with us on the Sonata Arctica run!”

Drummer from Arsis has revealed he is leaving the band

Posted by SeanB on Thursday, April 5, 2012 at 5:38 AM (PST)

Mike Van Dyne, the drummer and one of the founding members of the Virginia technical metal band Arsis, has sadly announced his departure from the band. This is a band who has been through multiple line up changes over the years and this isn’t the first time Van Dyne has left either, so it’s doubtful many people are surprised.

Arsis was reportedly working on a late 2012 or early 2013 follow up to 2010’s Nuclear Blast release called Starve For The Dead. Only time will tell how Van Dyne’s decision will influence that.

Arsis’s Jim Malone announces he won’t be able to tour

Posted by KageDrummer on Tuesday, September 20, 2011 at 1:48 PM (PST)

Arsis band photoJim Malone, the vocalist and guitarist for the Virginia death metal act, Arsis, has announced that we wouldn’t be on the tour with Firewind and White Wizzard. However the band will still play with a substitute. Malone on the subject stated:

Due to professional and personal commitments I am unable to tour with Arsis at this time. For the upcoming tour with Firewind, rather than drop off the tour entirely, we’ve decided to hire live musicians, some of whom have long been associated with my band. I have given Nick and Noah my blessing and am certain the lineup will be great. My sincerest apologies to anyone who is annoyed or disappointed by my absence. Please go and support Arsis and check out some of our new songs, which they will be playing every night!
