Extreme Technical Death Metal from Vancouver, B.C.
For the recent successes of technical death outfit ARCHSPIRE to come into fruition, certain variables must align. Talent, drive, creativitiy, and absolute dedication are only a few characteristics one may notice about the group, and indeed many have experienced the bi-product of these characteristics:
A tight live performance, where impressive speeds come grinding to a halt, and in even less time twist and contort into complex passages rife with beautiful harmonies, juxtaposed against insidious melodies. An attention to songwriting, focusing not only on technicality, but originality as well, take this sub genre and put it on it’s ear. And the combination of musical backgrounds, which is apparent in much of ARCHSPIRE’S music, showing itself through catchy rhythms, interesting riffs and arrangements, and progressive passages.
Pushing boundaries of speed and endurance set only by the genre’s top artists, while remaining accessible and interesting is no small feat. These Canadians have proven themselves worthy of touring and playing with bands like Origin, Decapitated, Hate Eternal, Abysmal Dawn, Vomitory, Fleshgod Apocalypse, and Aborted.
When all the elements required align in such a way that they form something original, and interesting, it becomes a catalyst for something new… and in the case of ARCHSPIRE, All has indeed, Aligned.
We are Nucleus. Our sole purpose is to melt your neocortex with our brand of utterly cosmic death metal brutality. We give a shit about two things: black holes, and blastbeats. Get you some.
GOD DEMENTIA was formed by Zack Smolenski after his exit from Dead For Days in 2009. What was originally a studio project had by 2014 morphed into a full time band once Zack enlisted former bandmates Rick Hernandez (Withering Soul, Reign Inferno, Dead for Days), Cody Zupan (Ephinepic, Reign Inferno, Dead For Days), and James Genenz (Jungle Rot, Fleshgrind, Reign Inferno, Avernus, Dead For Days).
GOD DEMENTIA’s debut album “Consuming The Delusional” was released in July 2015 and was received quite well by press and metal fans worldwide! Six months later the band grows again, recently adding guitarist and old friend Johnny Dove (Everdying, Cardiac Arrest) to the fold, expanding the bands potential and launching GOD DEMENTIA to full speed in 2016!
