Arsis Announces Touring Musicians

As previously announced, Virginia's Arsis will be touring as part of the “Frets of Fury Tour” this October without guitarist/vocalist Jim Malone. The band has now announced the musicians filling in for Jim in his absence.

"Mike Parks will be performing vocals for the tour in October,” commented the band. “He's the obvious choice as he has helped us out in the past when Malone lost his voice, and was actually the singer of the band that became Arsis. He is a long-time friend and an extremely strong singer, and we're happy to have him with us."

The band continued, "We'd also like to introduce Brandon Ellis. This is something incredibly special. He is a young guy who plays with the kind of maturity that has become rare in the modern metal and shred scene. His presence will take the guitar chops in Arsis to a new high. Talk is cheap, so see for yourself below.

"WE ARE NOT CANCELLING. ‘The Frets of Fury’ tour was built specifically around the participation of Arsis and it would be dishonorable to back out and hang everybody out to dry. So we are bringing a brutal set of new music (some of which we've already shared online) and some old ones, which have never been played live despite a constant clamor for them. The lineup is AWESOME as all at the shows will soon discover."

Arsis Posts New Demo Track Online

American extreme metal act Arsis has posted a new demo track online titled "Since The Shadows." The band commented on the track by saying;

"We are indeed writing a new Arsis album and we want to offer everybody a glimpse into the music that we’ve been building for the last few months. This is a demo of a new one called ‘Since the Shadows‘ and it’s from the first batch of songs for the album. It’s still early but a musical direction has emerged from the work so far and we think it speaks for itself without any grand pronouncements, so enjoy it and we will see you on the Firewind tour this fall!"

"We have been scheming among ourselves for quite a while about this, and now it's finally going to happen. We rehearsed the full version of ‘A Diamond For Disease’ last week and it came together even better than we had hoped! It needed the right tour and the right point in the life of the band, and we would not do it at all unless it was perfect. We're finally there. So everybody who's been asking us to play the entire thing every night for years and years... you finally get your (poisonous) medicine this December!"

Virginia's Arsis has announced a run headlining U.S. tour dates in December. "A Tour for the Sick" is presented by MetalInjection.net and will include Powerglove and Conducting From The Grave. Arsis vocalist/guitarist Jim Malone commented:

"What does a band that is notorious for canceling tours, video game induced tendinitis, and a Noah Martin look-a-like all have in common? If you have spent the better part of your existence trying to play 16th triplet arpeggios at 250 bpm you will probably be overcome with joy (or something) to hear that we (meaning Arsis dudes), Powerglove, and Conducting From The Grave are teaming up for a US tour this December. We are beyond stoked for our first headlining tour in support of Starve for the Devil and hope to see you at one (or more) of the tour dates. We promise to 'turn up the hell' on this one and make your weekend (or week night) one that is 'rock hard' and metalificated."

Arsis Re-joined By Former Bassist

Bassist Noah Martin, who announced his departure from Virginia’s melodic/technical death metal band Arsis in September 2008, has now announced his return to the band’s line-up. The band was on the “Facemelter Tour” with Dying Fetus, Misery Index, Annotations Of An Autopsy, and Conducting From The Grave when bassist Nathaniel Carter abruptly left. Arsis has now released the following official statement:

“So it's true that we have been playing as a three piece for a few gigs. Nat is out and if you want the real story come to a show and ask us, because trust me, that is much more fun and potentially colorful than reading it in an officially sanctioned and sanitized press statement. But this is a problem of very small gravity because we are inevitable and by the time the clock strikes midnight tonight we will be rejoined by our very dear friend and long-missed colleague ... (insert drum roll here) ... the immortal Noah Martin is back in our traveling circle of insanity! We will be turning the hell up to 11 in New Mexico tonight!”

Martin added: “Since leaving Arsis, I've been back in Virginia, finishing up my bachelor's degree. I'm still enrolled in college, so I'm kinda in the same boat as Mike [Van Dyne, drummer] as far as playing live goes. It's tough to stay away from what you love and know so well. For me, making music with James Malone means listening to obscure ‘80s metal, staying in seedy hotels, peeing in wrecked trailers, playing with Dutchstep, and singing like King Diamond. It feels good to be back in the fold, to make music with my friends. Good times.”
