Fastest band in the world – Archspire Shreds ARCHSPIRE will be touring in support of their acclaimed latest album, ‘Relentless Mutation’. The cover of ‘Relentless Mutation’ by renowned artist Eliran Kantor can be viewed below. 1. Involuntary Doppelgänger (3:46) 2. Human Murmuration (4:13) 3. Remote Tumour Seeker (4:01) 4. Relentless Mutation (4:35) 5. The Mimic Well (4:05) 6. Calamus Will Animate (3:50) 7. A Dark Horizontal (6:10) Welcome to first class technical death metal madness. Machinegun vocals rattle remorselessly over a furious flurry of arpeggios, scales, and everything else that the two string wizards of ARCHSPIRE can pick at break-finger speed out their guitars. If this sounds hardly human at the level of technical execution, the Gatling-style hyper-drumming pushing these monstrous compositions forward is adding to the alien impression. It cannot even be a question that the Canadians have outdone themselves with their third full-length, ‘Relentless Mutation’. This album is simply insane in a most excellent way. The level of musicianship that ARCHSPIRE offer, will leave even tech death fans drooling. Yet the outfit from Vancouver in British Columbia is bringing an important extra to the table, the rare ability to write great songs. ‘Relentless Mutation’ is not just another compilation of outstanding musicianship, but the songs come with recognisable patterns that make sense in the greater conceptual framework of the album. And a clever use of contrasts leaves moments of clarity for the listener to take a breath and get ready for the next assault. ARCHSPIRE exploded onto the scene in the year 2009 – after an earlier prelude under the moniker DEFENESTRATED. The band grew out of the rich Canadian scene for technical extremes that includes illustrious names such as GORGUTS or BEYOND CREATION. Yet ARCHSPIRE set out to take the sound to the next level from the start as their debut album ‘All Shall Align’ (2011) made clear, which immediately received critical comparison with the scene’s spearheads like OBSCURA. The band developed a lyrical concept revolving around a dystopian science fiction universe, which was expanded on their sophomore full-length, ‘The Lucid Collective’ (2014) that witnessed ARCHSPIRE gaining widespread international recognition as one of the hottest names within the tech death community and beyond. With ‘Relentless Mutation’, the Canadians are pushing the limits of their genre even further than before on all levels. ARCHSPIRE come crushing like a whirlwind to free ears and minds from pre-conceived notions about technical death metal. Time to leave your shelter and face the tempest. This is the future. The cover of ‘Relentless Mutation’ has been painted by renowned artist Eliran Kantor already well-known in the metal world for his works for TESTAMENT, ATHEIST, and HATE ETERNAL among others. www.facebook.com/Archspireband Line-up Dean Lamb: guitar Spencer Prewett: drums Oliver Rae Aleron: vocals Tobi Morelli: guitar Jared Smith: bass Recording, Mix, and Mastering Dave Otero at Flatline Audio Style: Technical Death Metal Cover art: Eliran Kantor Shop: http://smarturl.it/ArchspireRelentless Available formats CD Gatefold LP in various colours Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Tumblr (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading...
