Stirlingshire tech metal trio Arc Arrival made their entrance onto the scene with the release of their debut EP C.H.A.O.S in October ’20. The first 2 singles Count Havoc Among Our Sins and Re:Birth picked up national and global airplay across the likes of Total Rock + Amazing Radio. The band decided to shake things up a little with the 3rd release from the EP and brought in alternative Hip-Hop duo Hessian Renegade to remix the track.
Based in Glasgow, Scotland, and consisting of Conor Moore and Ross McCann, Hessian Renegade began as a venture into 90’s era Hip-Hop, and quickly evolved with a far more diverse crossover sound, combining these core elements with electronic synths, distorted guitars and a blend of live and digital drum sounds. Lyrically, the duo’s subjects range from everyday observations to black humour. The duo have featured 3 times across 2 back-to-back years in The Herald Scotland’s Top 100 Tunes from Scotland, appearing in the Top 10 on one of those occasions beating industry heavyweights such as Idlewild and Biffy Clyro.
With 2021 in full swing, the duo were keen to continue their new found collaborative success, as well as to expand the types of groups and genres they could work with. Arc Arrival’s heavy metal sound was an ideal challenge, providing an opportunity to experiment further with both bands sounds and form fast friendships in the process.
Arc Arrival are: Greg Dick (vocals) Marc McGuire (drums) Mag Kiemer (guitar/bass)
“We heard the work Hessian Renegade did with Dead By Monday on their LXST GENERATIXN single and were hugely impressed. We thought it would be fun for our 3rd single from the CHAOS EP to be a little different, so it was a no brainer to get involved with the guys, especially as we share the same management company” – Arc Arrival
