Arsis: Stream New Album, Watch New Music Video!


Five years after the release of their last album, Unwelcome, tech tyrants Arsis are back in full swing with Visitant. Out today on Nuclear Blast, Visitant is a horror movie inspired sp00ktacular that’ll keep the Halloween spirit alive until all the shops start putting out Christmas stuff. Oh wait.

Really, though — being able to bump this shit on Halloween would have been great! Alas, I guess it’ll have to wait till next year. Exceedingly fashionable Arsis mastermind James Malone commented on the inspiration behind the record:

“I think Visitant is Arsis’ most mature album but at the same time, it is also an album that harkens back to our youth. We all grew up on horror movies. For me personally my father would bring me, from a very early age, to the theater to see horror films. He passed his love of science fiction and horror down to me. I wanted to do something different for this album and it was just a natural move to incorporate this passion into Visitant. As I was doing my part of the writing I tried to capture the tone and atmosphere of some of my favorite films (Silver Bullet, From Beyond, Prince Of Darkness). It was a very satisfying and fun album to write and I think it might be what fans consider a ‘worthy follow-up’ to A Diamond For Disease.”

Order Visitant here. Then, check out the new music video for “Fathoms” below. It’s not quite as artsy as some of the other videos Arsis have put out in the past, but it’ll do in a pinch. Plus, the song totally slaps.

There’s also still a few days left of Devastation on the Nation, where you can catch Arsis as well as Internal Bleeding, Pyrexia, Angelmaker and Within Destruction. Remaining dates posted underneath the video.
