Arsis, which derived its name from the musical term “arsis and thesis” meaning unstressed (up-) and stressed (down-) beats respectively, makes music that is righteously tinged with black & thrash metal influences, but is completely dedicated to expanding the reaches of melodicism and technicality in the genre of death metal.

Internal Bleeding

internal bleeding

Formed in 1991, Internal Bleeding are pioneers of the style of death metal called “slam.” Their sound has paved the way for a whole generation of death metal and death-core bands who put heavy, groove laden riffs in the forefront of their music. After a long hiatus to settle their post-Internal Bleeding careers, raise families and settle down a bit, the core of the classic lineup is back to play shows and write new material that will hopefully end up on a release.

Mancunian slam crew Ingested have built a reputation as one of the most savage death metal acts to come out of the UK for a long time. Punishing beat-downs, epic riffage, guttural vocals and blistering speed are just some of the weapons in Ingested’s musical arsenal. (Source)


pyrexiaThe Year, 1990. The place, Mineola Long Island New York. Death Metal was rising up in the music scene in New York. Chris Basile, Guy Marchais, Daryl Wagner, Mike Andejko, and Rob Shimonski met to form the New York Death Metal band Pyrexia. Coming from similar backrounds and driven by a drug like passion for music , Pyrexia began to imprint its own Firebrand style of Death Metal at local shows and underground murmurs. In the years leading up to Pyrexia meeting and forming, guitar player Chris Basile had been working with and writing songs in several bands along with Terrence Hobbs, Mike Smith , and Doug Ceritto all of Suffocation. With dozens of songs written together, and going under the name “Mortuary”, the band, with studio time booked, broke up as they were to record their first demo. Many of the riffs and songs written for this band made their way onto the first several Suffocation and Pyrexia albums , hence the constant comparisons some times unfair over the years.

The Huge difference between Pyrexia and any other so called bands that sound like Suffocation or NEW YORK is that guitarist Chris Basile had been playing in bands and writing songs with Terrence Mike and Doug for years before there ever was a Pyrexia or a Suffocation.

After several line up changes and many guitar try-outs,(including Chris Pervelas who later went on to form NYDM Powerhouse Internal Bleeding), Pyrexia recorded their first full lenghth release “Sermon of Mockery” on overseas label Hard Vynil. With great acclaim , this album would define the band as a true contributor to American Death Metal.

Putting together a ferocious line-up, including drummer Justin DiPinto, most known for his work with Malevolant Creation on the album “Will to Kill”. The next to enlist would become one of the most integral parts of Pyrexia today. That person is audio masochist and vocal prodigy Erick Shute. Erick came into the picture never singing in a band before and was 9 years old when “Sermon of Mockery” was released. Today , he is a huge part of leading the band forward and faster like never before.

Currently abominating crowds, Pyrexia continues to Dominate with no end in sight. (Source)

Aethere is a 4 piece metal band from the Bay Area in California. Throughout their career they have endured changes that would eventually shape them into the band they are today. Founded by their drummer Josh Slater in 2009, they went through various members before solidifying the current lineup consisting of: guitarist Chris Tognetti, vocalist James Patton, and bassist Evan Yoshino. Crushing music accompanied by heavy lyrics dealing with dissociation and depression , the band brings something new and honest to the realm of heavy music they fall into. Elements of blackened deathcore, syncopated breakdowns, technical death metal, and nods to hardcore; Aethere’s sound is fueled by raw emotion while refusing to follow any genre guidelines that may be presented.
