Vancouver's ARCHSPIRE unleash an insane attack of blistering technical death metal on 'The Lucid Collective'; their first full-length for Season of Mist. Guitars shred with fury, and vicious vocals swarm over whirlwind drum work in the band's potent display of 21st century extremity. More than just a collection of chops and blast beasts, 'The Lucid Collective's eight tracks showcase a fast-rising band with supreme mastery of dynamics going hand in hand with their aggression. 'The Lucid Collective' is a definitive statement of intent by one of death metal's most exciting new bands.
A unique, energetic strain of complex, aggressive metal that is intricate, idiosyncratic, and progressive. This is a new breath of life, and an exercise in dynamic technical metal virtuosity! Archspire
