Below is our complete Arbiter news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
The self-aware entertainers from Arbiter have Rick-trolled their own fans, showed the world how to write breakdowns with playing cards, and put up 80 other mildly entertaining videos on their official YouTube channel.
Now 2014 draws to a close and Arbiter is going out with a Bang Bang — with a cover of Jessie J's Top 40 hit of the same name featuring Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. Arbiter's version of "Bang Bang" will be featured on the "Djent Rolls Deep Vol. 2" compilation put together It Djents and The Djent-lemen's Club, in addition to a full-scale release via Famined Records.
"It is a total blast to listen to," boasts Connor Arbiter, vocalist of the band. "I mean [our cover of 'Bang Bang'] pays hilarious tribute—and parody—to both the original song, pop music and of course the contrasting metal music memes and bands everyone in the community knows and loves." Connor adds that the song has "plenty of zeroes" and sounds "more Meshuggah than Meshuggah does."
"Guys in metal bands will be sending this song to their crushes on Valentine's Day next year, I guarantee it." Connor adds some closing thoughts. "It totally captures the "metal br0 love life."

Unsigned Michigan death metal band Arbiter has been confirmed to be currently writing and recording a new release (determined to be an EP) to follow up their self recorded, mixed, and mastered full length "Colossus."
The new Arbiter release is due for a spring 2011 release, and according to vocalist Connor Louiselle, Arbiter's next effort will "more closely follow [their] band's backstory."
"This CD is going to follow the attitude, thoughts and ideals of one of the societies of people in our fictional backstory called The Ironclad", states Louiselle. "They're a group of militant activists who will do whatever it takes to bring an end to the belief that technology could be our savior."
Louiselle went on to describe that Arbiter's sound was changing significantly for this EP in comparison to "Colossus." More...
