One of Denver’s most successful metal bands, Arcanium, is back with their highly anticipated sophomore release, Ontogenesis. This unrelenting barrage of metal cuts like a chainsaw with surprising surgical precision. The album is set to hit the streets on May 7th, 2013.
In perpetual forward motion since it’s 2007 conception, Arcanium has toured with such notable groups as Megadeth, Machine Head, Suicide Silence, Otep, and Ill Nino, capturing the attention of an extensive fan base. Ontogenesis is a testament to the band’s skill, hard work, and dedication: this intensity permeates the album from beginning to end. “Arcanium is a very interesting band. They are going to have some good things,” exclaimed Dave Mustaine of Megadeth during the 2009 End Game Tour featuring Arcanium. “Ontogenesis is not only our sophomore album, it’s our rebirth into the worldwide music scene,” says J Sinn, Arcanium’s lead vocalist. “The new sound of Arcanium since the addition of our second guitarist Adam Stewart has changed incredibly. Our fans across the world will dig the new intense sound.” As Arcanium eagerly awaits arrival of the release date, they will prepare for their album release party, which will take place in Fort Collins, CO. Following the record release, the band plans extensive national and worldwide touring through mid and late 2013.
