Arkaik has released their absolutely brutal death metal long-player, Lucid Dawn, and if you’re looking for an evil death metal way to spend your night, this might be the powerful solution to your problem. Go ahead and stream it now at Heavy Blog.
Featuring the addition of guitarists Miguel Esparza (ex-Hatriot) and Greg Paulson as composers as well as guest appearances from death metal heavyweights, Trevor Strnad and Ryan Knight of The Black Dahlia Murder, and Bay Area live string quartet, Amaranth, Arkaik gives you the soundtrack to ripping your face off. Lucid Dawn is an album that’s intense, violent, brutal, and magnificent… well, that’s my impression walking away with one listen through.
Lucid Dawn was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Fallujah, Wrvth, All Shall Perish) at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, California, and is out now worldwide via Unique Leader Records. Order bundles are currently available here.
Arkaik are currently in the midst of a near month-long headlining tour that started on October 16th. Featuring support from Bermuda and Unique Leader labelmates, Inanimate Existence, The Lucid Revolution Tour comes to a close November 8th in San Francisco, with additional live terrorization in the plotting stages.
