Arcadea, a three-piece psych-synth metal band, will be releasing their debut self-titled album this June 16th. The group features members of Mastodon, Zruda, and Withered, all bands I’ve listened to a bit and enjoyed. The trio announced this past week that they will be releasing it through Relapse Records, a label featuring bands such as The Obsessed, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Agoraphobic Nosebleed, all bands I personally enjoy. The one Arcadea song currently out is “Gas Giant”, and I’m quite the fan. “Gas Giant” is, in short, kickass. While it’s the only piece of Arcadea material we’ve been given in the past two years, it’s enough to give us all hope that their debut album will be awesome. Until now, no band I’ve heard of has made such a seamless blend of metal and synth as Arcadea has. I couldn’t be more excited to see what this project holds. I’ve marked my calendar for June 16th. Have you?
