Arsis

The genre known as melodic death metal has been synonomous with greatness, thanks to the legendary At the Gates. Sweden has since taken the genre in all sorts of directions, but America seemed to fall behind in this sense.

The genre known as melodic death metal has been synonomous with greatness, thanks to the legendary At the Gates. Sweden has since taken the genre in all sorts of directions, but America seemed to fall behind in this sense. Many American bands have melodic death elements in their sound, but few have truly made serious, honest-to-God melodic death metal.

Arsis, a Virginia based duo, has come to change all of that. With merely two men, Arsis has created brutal, fast, technical, and amazingly melodic death metal capable of putting their Scandinavian predecessors to shame. Monsterous drumming, face-ripping solos, and spine. crushing riffs have formed a musical force that took no time at all to develope a dedicated following in the underground music world. Metal fans across the world have embraced their debut, A Celebration of Guilt, as the pinnacle of modern american metal. And now with the arrival of their new EP A Diamond for Disease, Arsis relentlessly continues to release a pure metal onslaught that will either leave you banging your head or begging for mercy. « hide
