"After much thought and consideration Chris, Joe, and myself have decided to get the band back together and write another album for Archaic Eclipse!
"I cannot explain how excited I am to have Archaic Eclipse going again and even though we have only a few songs in their earliest stages I can already tell this album is going to be very promising. No bullshit, no genre change, no slowing down.
"This album will be the most brutal creation we have unleashed as a band, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Currently we are still hoping to find a drummer in our area but if not no fear we have a studio drummer lined up to do this album with us.
"Make sure you keep an eye on us as we delve further into this we will make sure to release some teasers and studio clips to keep you all updated on our progress. Archaic Eclipse is back into the Fray! Battle On!"
U.S. act Archaic Eclilpse has posted the following message online about deciding to call it quits due to constant lineup changes:
"Hey everyone, so I know we have been silent lately. We have been trying for about a year now to fill our line-up and finish the CD we are working on but it has all been in vain. After a lot of thought we have decided as of today that Archaic Eclipse is disbanding.
"As a band it doesn't make sense to continue on when we cannot fill a line up to play shows. It has been an endless cycle of finding members, having them learn the old songs and by the time we are ready to go into writing new music people leave and we are stuck going through the cycle again.

Archaic Eclipse has issued the following announcement about finishing their new demo:
"After a year of software problems, recording mishaps, writing difficulties and losing band members we have finally finished and released 'They Came With The Fog.' Unfortunately by the time it was done most members had left due to either personal problems, lack of devotion or injuries. Our old drummer Jon came and did finish the drums for us but unfortunately he had a previous shoulder injury and drumming only made it worse. So much to the dismay of Jon and the rest of us it was decided that being in this band would only further his injury so the best decision for him was to leave the band. You can hear his drums on both demo’s 'In Fields of Morning Frost' and 'They Came With The Fog.' We wish Jon a full recovery and the best of luck in all his future endeavors whatever they may be. So we will be searching for BAND MEMBERS in the months to come.
"Also, a big thanks has to go to Ehren from the band Excrecor. When our recording equipment failed and we didn’t know what we were going to do, Ehren selflessly offered to record us and spent countless hours mixing and perfecting our demo and didn’t stop till he was 100% satisfied with the final product. He did and excellent job and made recording extremely easy and pleasant for us. We will be recording all of our future work with him without a shadow of a doubt. So do us a favor and check out his band at this location they are amazing melodic death metal band and good friends of ours! More...

Unfortunately, over the past 6 months we have just noticed that the motivation and dedication was just not there. So never the less we will be searching for another guitarist as the remaining members of Archaic Eclipse regroup."

Thankfully there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon as we draw closer to finishing. We are very close to finishing the music and then it is just a matter of Dustin recording his vocals and some mixing then we are done. Our sincere apologies to those who have been patiently waiting for the demo to be finished. If it is any consolation we believe you will be extremely happy with 'They Came With the Fog'. We will be sure to keep you informed on the status of the demo. Thanks for your patience everyone!. Keep it Brutal!"
