Cultureplastic Definitely needed some of this in my life. It will take a while to wrap the brain around this one. Which is good. Very good. Favorite track: Seven Crowns and the Oblivion Chain.

Introvertoid This stuff isn't exactly subtle. Think of every tech-death stereotype that you can, and Archspire takes all of them to 11- except the one that tech-death bands are universally bland. Each song on this album is blisteringly fast, impeccably performed and produced, glaringly hyperbolic, yet incredibly catchy. I expected to react to this as I react to Brain Drill- with a jaded "meh"- but ended up loving it. Well done. 8/10 Favorite track: Fathom Infinite Depth.

mmes Easily my favorite album of the year. I'm surprised to see so few people bought it. I saw them at the SST and they completely upstaged The Faceless.

Plague of AM 03:36


Vancouver's ARCHSPIRE unleash an insane attack of blistering technical death metal on 'The Lucid Collective'; their first full-length for Season of Mist. Guitars shred with fury, and vicious vocals swarm over whirlwind drum work in the band's potent display of 21st century extremity. More than just a collection of chops and blast beasts, 'The Lucid Collective's eight tracks showcase a fast-rising band with supreme mastery of dynamics going hand in hand with their aggression. 'The Lucid Collective' is a definitive statement of intent by one of death metal's most exciting new bands.
