‘Battlestar Nostalgica’ Out Now [Independent]

Arch Echo – Battlestar Nostalgica

US based Progressive Fusion outfit Arch Echo have dropped a new video single entitled ‘Battlestar Nostalgica’.

‘Battlestar Nostalgica’ weaves through a diverse yet coherent mosaic of sonic landscapes. Thick nostalgic synths, engaging harmony and crushing riffs all come together to make a colourful and powerful piece of progressive music. Naming influences such as Rush, Alan Holdsworth and Animals As Leaders, the quintet draws inspiration from a wide variety of artists and also video games, bringing together a fun and uplifting soundscape that encompasses the nature of the instrumental quintet.

The band says this about the track “Battlestar Nostalgica is an offering taken from our forthcoming album that will be released in 2023. We wrote the song by bouncing off of each others’ ideas and influences and thought we’d inject a bunch of fun into the song. We shot the video in a warehouse in Nashville and we’re psyched to debut this song live on our forthcoming headline tour dates starting next week. See you on the road!”

Arch Echo is the brainchild of five musicians who wish to push the envelope of modern music. Their goal is to create music that is not only complex, but accessible to the listener, delivered with passion and enthusiasm. Formed in 2016, Arch Echo exploded onto the progressive metal/fusion scene with a debut self-titled album that gained worldwide attention, housing popular songs “Hip Dipper” and “Color Wheel”. Tours in North America and Europe soon followed including a mainstage debut at the UK Tech Fest in 2018. Arch Echo returned with a 2019 follow up “You Won’t Believe What Happens Next!” and again in 2020 with their 4- track EP, “Story I”.

Tours with artists such as Dream Theater, Periphery, Plini, VOLA and a co-headline Japanese tour with Jacky Vincent brought their powerful live sound to new ears all over the world.

Arch Echo’s musical proficiency has seen them cross over into the gaming world to great success, and capture the hearts and minds of both progressive music and gaming fans, whilst simultaneously bringing an uplifting and fun element to their musical creations.

The band, who recently supported Dream Theater on their US tour, join the likes of Angel Vivaldi, Hollywood Chamber Orchestra, Band-Maid and various other artists in recreating the soundtrack for the Chinese game in their own style.

Arch Echo says this about their participation in the video game

“As someone who likes to come up with metal arrangements of classic video game tunes for fun, it was a really cool experience to work with Genshin Impact. They are a highly respected video game and have a community that truly enjoys quality soundtracks. I believe that our renditions of the songs on this OST bring the full power of Arch Echo behind the project. Genshin’s original music is absolutely incredible and I really love how our arrangements turned out.” – Joe Calderone of Arch Echo
