Valentine's Day Special: The Soundtrack of Love, Behold... The Arctopus Style
Along with nomadic klassi-killing virtuoso Mick Barr, prog-metallic shape-shifters Dysrhythmia and death skronking punk-jazz unit Child Abuse--those meticulous magicians of tech-metal brutality, Behold... The Arctopus--have helped usher in Brooklyn's experi-metal renaissance into kingdom crush.
Behold... The Arctopus: Have we told you lately that we love you?
Anchored by none other than Flying Luttenbachers mastermind, ugEXPLODE Records chief and improvising terrorist Weasel Walter and aided by duelling Warr guitar-slinger Colin Marston (also of Dysrhythmia, Gorguts, Krallice and proprietor of Menegroth, Village Voice's choice for 2012's Best Recording Studio) and notes-mongering ax-grinder Mike Lerner, Behold... The Arctopus marked its return late last year with the exhaustive masterpiece of cutthroat precision, Horrorscension.
On the cusp of embarking on a tour launching in March, Walter, Marston and Lerner will first spread their love in the form of metallic warfare inside the heaviest of all metal hubs, Saint Vitus, on this, the most romantic of days. Expect lots of brainiac guitar string-finger-fuckery and mind-numbing thrashtastic penetration during bruiser epics "Deluge of Sores" and "Putrefucktion" while you canoodle with your honey.
In honor of the year's lovey-dovey-ist holiday, we caught Walter and Lerner in a sentimental mood and shit (Marston wasn't feeling it) and they were kind enough to provide their soundtrack of love, Behold... The Arctopus style.
Behold... The Arctopus celebrate Valentine's Day at Saint Vitus tonight with Vektor, Vaporizer and Pyrrhon
