Riverside, California-based technical/progressive death metallers ARKAIK have posted a new song, "The Divine Manifestation", on their MySpace page. The track comes off the band's forthcoming debut album, "Reflections Within Dissonance", which is scheduled for release on January 26 via Unique Leader Records. The CD was mixed by Samur Khouja at Seahorse Sound Studios and was mastered by Stefano Morabito of 16 Cellar Studios (HOUR OF PENANCE, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE). According to the band, "The album consists of 10 tracks that blend brutality, technical fret work, memorable grooves, powerful vocals and much more."
01. The Transcendent Spectral Path
02. Reflections Within Dissonance
04. Obscured Luminosity
05. Womb Of Perception
06. The Divine Manifestation
07. Malignant Ignorance
08. Elemental Synthesis
09. Elegy For The Disillusioned
10. Face Of Regression
The "Reflections Within Dissonance" cover artwork was created by Pär Olofsson (ABORTED, EMETH) and can be viewed below.
According to the band's official bio, "The manifestation of ARKAIK began with the intent to create the most versatile and original sound in existence, using only the most intense, extreme and passionate influences. Caring not for the generic mediocrity that plagues the majority of all genres these days, they have fiercely sought after a sound that places them far above what is considered 'the norm.' Human nature leads us to question existence, to find new pathways of thought and logic.
"ARKAIK is the musical representation of this form of idealogy. Simply listen to one song and the plethora of musical influences that form ARKAIK are devastatingly apparent. This makes them appealing to all fans of heavy metal, regardless of their genre preference."
