About The Release
California-based symphonic death metal/black metal faction Arcane Existence is excited to announce the upcoming release of their second album, Colossus. The album is set for release on August 20th. German fantasy artist Nele Diel handled the cover art for Colossus and the album was engineered, mixed, and masted by Nick Loiacono at Fang Studios.
Arcane Existence initially began as the solo project of Bay Area, California multi-instrumentalist Kiera Pietrangelo in 2016. With the help of two studio musicians adding vocals to her music, Kiera released the project’s debut album, The Dark Curse in 2017. Buoyed by a stronger-than-expected reception, Arcane Existence then evolved into a full band line-up whose contributions to Colossus expand and enhance the already multifaceted approach to symphonic extreme metal the group was known for.
On Colossus, Arcane Existence further expands and unfurls their vision for hard-to-pigeonhole symphonic black/death metal. From start to finish, the album’s thirteen tracks, ranging from two minutes to over six minutes in length, draw from a deep well of black metal and death metal influences to create theatrical and engrossing music you’ll want to keep coming back to. From ethereal and clean sung driven to deathly and complex, interwoven with strong keyboard and harp melodies and often frenetic drumming, Colossus melds disparate realms into a beautifully cohesive brand of symphonic metal that’s all their own. Arcane Existence – Colossus may very well surprise you and wind up among your favorite releases of 2021.
The album will strongly appeal to fans of bands such as Dimmu Borgir, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Carach Angren, Watain, Abigail Williams, Cradle of Filth, Dark Fortress, Epica, Nightwish, and Delain.
