This is their grand, long awaited second album, that's being released today, October 23rd, by Black Market Activities. This marks a new era for the band, what with the line-up changes and new injection of musical ideas, so the elipsis [...] is being removed from the band name. Fun stuff: 12 string Waar guitarist Colin Marston (Dysrhythmia) dived into some new musical ocean depths, founding avant-black metal band Krallice and joined up as a member of long time death metal legends, Gorguts. Original drummer Charlie Zeleney departed from the band, to be replaced by Weasel Walter, who is noted for his musical collaborations with free jazz, death metal, hardcore punk, and noise. Original guitarist, Mike Lerner, brings back an abundance with his guitar playing ability as well. This album was written down completely on paper, and then learned (as all of Arctopus' material has been). Said Marston, "Since our music is written down and then learned, like classical music, we're never actually building songs based on our playing ability. It's very different from jamming out a bunch of riffs." He also went on to say, "I would love it if, when people hear Horrorscension, they think 'Whoa, what the hell is going on?' rather than 'Wow, they can play their instruments well'. I want the focus to be on the content, not the performance." Horrorscension was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Marston himself at his Thousand Caves studio in Queens, New York. (He got some extra experience in helping out as a recording engineer for albums from Kayo Dot, Jarboe, Altar of Plagues, and Orthrelm.) Apart from being the, if not, one of the coolest three piece in metal (the other is Blotted Science), they've made an album that will almost assuredly make it into my top 10 for 2012. I hope it will for many others. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If I had a dollar for every time I wanted to show a friend a cool band, and looked on Youtube to find only swine live videos, I'd have at least... $50. In all seriousness, we all know the feeling. I had to make another account to remedy this frustrating 10 minutes of widely misspent life. The nitty gritty fresh and fitty, or something less grindpop-core influenced than that: 1. I upload all genres. 2. I upload all songs from EP's, albums, etc. 3. I also upload individual album streams. 4. I love making lists. 4. I upload the lesser known bands, usually not on Youtube. 3. I can't count. 5. If you have a request, feel free to let me know, but I will not guarantee anything. If you're in a band (and have released a full album/ep), I am more likely to fulfill your request. I hope I save you some of that frustrating 10 minutes of wasted productivity... doing whatever it is you people do.
