‘Origin of Dreams’ out now
Debut LP Cascadence to be released 12th February 2021
ARCAEON have unveiled their new single ‘Origin of Dreams’, taken from their debut full-length Cascadence, further staking their claim as a new band to watch within the UK’s promising progressive metalcore scene.
Cascadence is released 12th February 2021 and follows the band’s acclaimed debut EP Balance, released January 2018.
Packing a punch with their find blend of technical metal and progressive metalcore, ARCAEON are a group entirely unafraid to bring all their hooks and riffs to the fore. Elements of Periphery, Intervals’ vocal album A Voice Within, and Architects combine to exhilarating effect.
ARCAEON are already a mainstay of the progressive circuit, having performed at notable events Radar Festival and Tech-Fest, as well as supporting Devil Sold His Soul and The Arusha Accord.
As suggested by their names, tracks six and seven mark the turning point in Cascadence, which is loosely a concept album of colour, from ‘Infernum Demergeris’ (the Hell at the beginning of Blade Runner – sepia, orange, dark tones) through to ‘An Endless Sky’ (blue). ‘Zenith I: The Reflection’ is “A mantra for when we think too much about the mistakes we’ve made or what we could’ve been if we had lived differently. We cannot change history, only learn from it”; ‘Zenith II: Arcadia’ is a depiction of Utopia, “about elevating ourselves beyond our social, racial, political and other differences into a new collective togetherness”.
The colour change is reflected in the band’s artwork and portraits – fully bringing together all aspects of this highly intriguing multidimensional project.
