"Switching death metal like seasoned veterans of the industry..." - Jay DiNitto of Noisecreep.com “This is a truly eye-popping convulsion of tech-death, with schizophrenic rhythms, astounding technical riffing and drumwork, and tiny threads of reappearing melody that stitch the songs together into cohesive wholes. And I’m not sure I’ve ever heard a death-metal vocalist bark out the lyrics faster than Archspire’s . . . . This is most definitely a band to keep your eyes on; you will hear more about them.” - Islander of Nocleaningsinging.com *********** For the recent successes of technical death outfit ARCHSPIRE to come into fruition, certain variables must align. Talent, drive, creativitiy, and absolute dedication are only a few characteristics one may notice about the group, and indeed many have experienced the bi-product of these characteristics: A tight live performance, where impressive speeds come grinding to a halt, and in even less time twist and contort into complex passages rife with beautiful harmonies, juxtaposed against insidious melodies. An attention to songwriting, focusing not only on technicality, but originality as well, take this sub genre and put it on it's ear. And the combination of musical backgrounds, which is apparent in much of ARCHSPIRE'S music, showing itself through catchy rhythms, interesting riffs and arrangements, and progressive passages. Pushing boundaries of speed and endurance set only by the genre's top artists, while remaining accessible and interesting is no small feat. These Canadians have proven themselves worthy of touring and playing with bands like Origin, Decapitated, Hate Eternal, Abysmal Dawn, Vomitory, Fleshgod Apocalypse, and Aborted. When all the elements required align in such a way that they form something original, and interesting, it becomes a catalyst for something new... and in the case of ARCHSPIRE, All has indeed, Aligned. For fans of : Origin, Spawn of Possession, Obscura, and Immolation. ***********
Inferi is an American melodic death metal band forged from the bowels of Nashville, Tennessee. The band formed in 2006 and strived to merge the classic melodic metal sound with a taste of crushing technicality. After releasing Divinity in War in 2007 and The End of an Era in 2009, they experienced an overwhelming ripple of hardships, causing the band to lay dormant in an unforeseen state of hibernation. In 2011 the lead guitarist, Malcolm Pugh (A Loathing Requiem, Diskreet, Ex-Enfold Darkness) decided to reignite the fire. Recruiting Mike Low (Oubliette, Ex-Enfold Darkness) on guitar and Jack Blackburn (Ex-Vital Remains, Ex-Enfold Darkness) on drums, the plan was clear - musical annihilation. Inferi sets themselves outside of the generic pack by mixing melodious, yet technical musicianship with virtuosic songwriting rarely since in today's extreme metal acts. In Early 2014, Inferi released their third effort, The Path of Apotheosis. The band is currently in the studio recording their fourth epic release.
Vulvodynia is a six piece Slamming Brutal Death Metal band started by Duncan Bentley and Luke Haarhoff in the beginning of 2014, and produced by Byron Dunwoody who later on joined the band as second guitarist. Thomas Hughes (Fuzigish, Haggis and Bong & All Forlorn) was added on Drums, Kris Xenopoulos (Carnage Carnival, Contrast the Water) was added on Guitar/Bass and Chase Drewett (Carnage Carnival, Contrast the Water, Desolation) on Live Bass
