ARSIS Released Music Video for New Track 'Fathoms'
American death metallers ARSIS released music video for new track 'Fathoms', taken from the band's sixth studio album Visitant, out today (November 2nd, 2018) via Agonia Records (Europe / Rest Of The World) and Nuclear Blast Records (North / South / Central America).
ARSIS commented on Visitant: "With a meticulous attention to detail and hooks, we feel as though we have created our most honest and dark record to date".
Guitarist & vocalist James Malone elaborates: "I wanted to do something different with the lyrical themes for this album and it was just a natural move to incorporate a passion for horror into Visitant. As I was doing my part of the writing I tried to capture the tone and atmosphere of some of my favorite films (Silver Bullet, From Beyond, Prince Of Darkness). It was a very satisfying and fun album to write and I think it might be what fans consider a 'worthy follow-up' to A Diamond For Disease". On the first single and its video, James added: "Tricking the Gods is inspired by my love of werewolf movies, specifically Stephen King’s Silver Bullet. I really liked the idea that everyone in the town was looking for this beast and it turned out to be the person they least expected: the minister. That blurred line between good and evil, heaven and hell made perfect song writing fuel".
