BEHOLD… THE ARCTOPUS RETURN!
Sometime over the past week or so the following message appeared on the Bandcamp page of NYC tech metal legends Behold… The Arctopus:
2001 – we spawned.
2012 – we respawned.
Which would seem to indicate that Colin Marston and his troupe of instrumental savants are waking from their 3-year slumber, right? Exactly! If the above short message isn’t enough to make you believe, how about some live shows? Behold… The Arctopus will be playing two hometown Brooklyn shows on February 16th at Public Assembly (with Zevious and Child Abuse) and February 24th at St. Vitus (with Geryon [Nick McMaster and Lev Weinstein of Krallice playing “brutal, bizarre death metal!!”] and Mindless Blasting [feat. Mick Barr of Krallice]).
Behold the Arctopus 2k12 is a little different than the last go-round, but the lineup is no less awesome: Mike Lerner (Nader Sadek) and Weasel Walter (founder of The Flying Luttenbachers, whoever they are) will round out the lineup with band mastermind Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, Dysrhythmia).
