ARKAIK Completes Recording Debut Album; Cover Artwork Unveiled

Riverside, California-based technical/progressive death metallers ARKAIK have finished recording their debut album, "Reflections Within Dissonance", for a January 2010 release via Unique Leader Records. The CD is currently being mixed by Samur Khouja at Seahorse Sound Studios and will be sent to Stefano Morabito of 16 Cellar Studios (HOUR OF PENANCE, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE) for mastering. According to the band, "The album will consist of 10 tracks that blend brutality, technical fret work, memorable grooves, powerful vocals and much more."

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."
