On November 2nd, Arsis’ new album Visitant will arrive via Nuclear Blast. The record is considered as the group’s most mature effort as it was inspired by horror movies. These melodic tech-death giants have now unleashed the second single “Hell Sworn,” which features a guest solo from Inferi guitarist Malcolm Pugh. Next week, Arsis will embark on a North American tour with Decrepit Birth, check out the tour dates here.
The band commented about the LP:
“I think Visitant is ARSIS’ most mature album but at the same time, it is also an album that harkens back to our youth. We all grew up on horror movies. For me personally my father would bring me, from a very early age, to the theater to see horror films. He passed his love of science fiction and horror down to me. I wanted to do something different for this album and it was just a natural move to incorporate this passion into Visitant. As I was doing my part of the writing I tried to capture the tone and atmosphere of some of my favorite films (Silver Bullet, From Beyond, Prince Of Darkness). It was a very satisfying and fun album to write and I think it might be what fans consider a ‘worthy follow-up’ to A Diamond For Disease.”
