Arceye Releases Playthrough Video

Today U.K. death thrashers Arceye premiere a playthrough video for the title track off sophomore record "At First Light." Watch the video below, courtesy of MetalMouth.net. Arceye vocalist/bassist Al Llewellyn comments:

"'At First Light' is one of my personal favourites from the album. Technically it is a nice display of what we can do and captures the majority of what Arceye is all about. With it being the title track of the album and one we weren't wanting to make a full music video for, it seemed the obvious choice for a play-through video!

"As a musician I think it's nice to watch play-through videos of bands sitting in their rehearsal rooms without the glamour of a full production music video, it's where they spend the majority of their time writing/rehearsing the songs they play, it's honest and there's no hiding behind slick camera work or bullshit!

"Musically 'At First light' was a collective effort of all of us, it was intended as our first track/set the mood of the album song with a big build up to a fast verse then a break down mid section to get some heads banging!

"With it being the title track of the album also the lyrical content is about the road ahead/where we think we are as a band which is captured in our album artwork!" More...

Arceye Posts "I Silently Wait" Lyric Clip

Following the premiere of "I Silently Wait" earlier this week on Team Rock Radio, U.K. death thrashers Arceye have now unleashed an official lyric video for the track. Check it out below.

The track is the first real taste of "At First Light," the second full-length from Arceye and follow-up to the debut "The Divide Between Chaos & Order." Commenting on the album the band said:

“This album we feel we have really trimmed the fat on our songwriting and made it the best it could be! If we didn’t think that it kicked ass it didn’t make the cut! We also stepped up the production value, recording the drums In Foel studios and working with Scott Atkins (Sylosis, Cradle Of Filth, Amon Amarth, Gamma Bomb) on the mix and master. The Meaning of ‘At First Light’ is a representation of where we felt we were as a band when we were writing the album. Since our last release we have gained two new members, both with a writing influence and we’ve developed more of a vision of the music we wanted to play.”

In recent weeks the band posted videos documenting the writing and recording process behind "At First Light," which can be found here. More...

Arceye Posts Behind The Scenes Footage

U.K. death thrashers Arceye have posted the final installment of their studio blog series that takes the viewer behind the scenes of "At First Light," the band's upcoming new album. Check it out below, or watch the previous clip in the series at this location.

States the band: “This is the final video which shows us setting up our own mobile Pro Tools setup to record guitars, bass and vocals. We recorded everything at a few locations including our practice room. Doing it this way meant that we could take our time and get the performances we wanted without the pressure of daily studio costs. When we had finished we sent it all off to Scott Atkins (Sylosis, Cradle Of Filth, Amon Amarth, Gama Bomb) at Grindstone Studios to re-amp, mix and master it.”

The video also shows the artwork process that was undertaken by the bands drummer Craig Mackay. “Craig painted the front cover and all of the portraits. These were then scanned into the computer and Craig finished off the final artwork layouts and text. Even though this was a fairly long process we always wanted to put together a great album package, which included the artwork as well as the music within. We believe we have achieved this and are very proud of the finished product. We hope everyone else agrees.” More...

Arceye Posts Studio Report

U.K. death thrashers Arceye have posted part 1 of a 2 part studio blog which takes the viewer behind the scenes for "At First Light," the band's upcoming new album. Check it out below.

Part 1 of the blog shows footage of drums being tracked at Foel Studios in Wales with producer Chris Fielding (Napalm Death, Cerebral Bore, Darkest Era). "We had previously mixed the first album 'The Divide Between Chaos & Order' there and enjoyed working with the engineer Chris Fielding so it was a good option to use this time round," states drummer Craig Mackay. "We also know a lot of bands (Xerath, Envy Of The State, etc.) who have used the same studio and have gotten some great results."

"At First Light" is the second full-length from Arceye and will be released worldwide on August 7th via Hostile Media. Commenting on the album the band said: “This album we feel we have really trimmed the fat on our songwriting and made it the best it could be! If we didn’t think that it kicked ass it didn’t make the cut! We also stepped up the production value and worked with Scott Atkins (Sylosis, Cradle Of Filth, Amon Amarth, Gama Bomb) on the mix and master. The meaning of ‘At First Light’ is a representation of where we felt we were as a band when we were writing the album. Since our last release we have gained two new members, both with a writing influence and we’ve developed more of a vision of the music we wanted to play.”

Last week the band posted "Since The Divide," a clip revealing behind the scenes footage of the writing process and some pre-production work on the album. That clip can be seen at this location. More...
