Following the success of their self-released 2009 album The Divide Between Chaos & Order, UK based thrash act Arceye have announced their second album At First Light is set to hit shelves this August.
The band have commented on the new album, saying “This album we feel we have really trimmed the fat on our song-writing and made it the best it could be! If we didn’t think that it kicked ass it didn’t make the cut! We also stepped up the production value, recording the drums in Foel studios and working with Scott Atkins on the mix and master.”
“The album artwork, title and first track tie in together as we wanted this to be our opening statement, with the theme running through the album. The idea behind the name/artwork is that the wolf climbing the mountain is always hungrier than the wolf on top. We feel we have gone through a rebirth as a band and this album is all about the climb to get us on to the next run of the ladder.”
Since Arceye’s first studio album, they have gained two new members, and have developed more of a vision in terms of the music they want to produce and perform. The Divide Between Chaos & Order saw them appear in both Terrorizer and Metal Hammer, being described as “hard-hitting” and “balls out thrash.”
