ARCANE EXISTENCE - Launched A New Single/Music Video And Announced The Sophomore Album

The USA 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 self-release on 20 August. Just today the band launched the official music video for the track "The Altar", taken from the upcoming album.  

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 favourite 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.

Arcane Existence band statement regarding Colossus: "'Colossus' is a journey through a mystical land following a cult's quest towards reaching the Colossus castle. Each song paints a different phase of the cultists' internal conflicts of breaking through their own mind's illusions. The lore of 'Colossus' is told through hauntingly angelic singing and inhumanly dynamic gutturals. Melodic piano and dramatic layers of orchestrations trace the lingering and thematic guitars that create the magical sound space. The foundation of 'Colossus' is driven by the ritualistically thunderous drums and rhythmic dark bass. 'Colossus' is an intense cultivation of Arcane Existence's sound and represents the collaborative effort as a full band for the first time." "The Altar" awaits you below. Link
