Arsis

Formed in 2000 by a violinist and a double bassist, Virginia-based death and thrash metal outfit Arsis -- a musical term that relates to the original concept of "arsis and thesis," meaning up and down beats, to be more exact -- got their start in Boston by Berklee College of Music students and friends James Malone (the violinist) and Michael Van Dyne, arguably more as a time filler rather than a serious project. With Van Dyne taking up drumming duties (he'd spent time studying drum performance) and Malone handling all the other duties of the group, Arsis recorded their first demo in 2001, and a follow-up in 2002. After playing a handful of live shows and getting some exposure for their well-received demos, Arsis became a full-time -- not to mention serious -- project, signing their first record deal -- with Willowtip Records -- in 2004. Their debut for the indie label, A Celebration of Guilt, won them high honors in the metal music press, even earning comparisons to genre legends At the Gates -- specifically their final album, Slaughter of the Soul. Arsis also began their first bout of touring in support of their work at this point, filling out their live ranks with session musicians -- a setup that would continue for a number of years. In 2005, Arsis released the EP A Diamond for Disease, which not only won them even more critical praise, but whose title track was requisitioned by a ballet company in New York, the Ballet Deviare.

Arsis began recordings on their next full-length in 2006. The album, United in Regret, was a more technical affair, produced by Daath guitarist Eyal Levi, and would help secure the band a deal with Nuclear Blast. Although the band had now reached new heights in the national metal scene, including shared stages and tours with such names as Enslaved, Goatwhore, and Cephalic Carnage, drummer -- and founder, it must be noted -- Michael Van Dyne decided to call it a day. Although down to just one official member, Arsis were ready to push forward. Composer, vocalist, and guitarist James Malone quickly rebounded, putting together a more standard-format full-time band, taking on drummer Darren Cesca, guitarist Ryan Knight, and United in Regret sessions bassist Noah Martin. (For a brief time, due to Malone losing his voice, Mike Parks took on vocal duties for Arsis. By 2007, Malone was back on the mike, and the band had decided to part ways amicably with Parks.) Arsis returned to the fore with their 2008 full-length, We Are the Nightmare, which followed in the footsteps of their previously recorded work, earning them critical praise and helping to shore up higher numbers in their nationwide fan base. A tour with legendary thrash pioneers Exodus was planned for January of that year. ~ Chris True, Rovi

Whoa. This is sick stuff
The most rock & metal stations on Pandora Radio!
Saw them in Indy with Dying Fetus and acouple other bands. I went to see Arsis and was not disappointed . Lead singer signed his name on a bloodstain on my shirt ad it made my life. They're show was f**king epic start to finish
Celebration is still the best. I saw these guys at the church in Philly waaaay before they got big. There were only like 20 ppl there
PRETTY BADASS!!!
Really kool band I like them a lot!!
It's nice to see an American band lay down some great metal without unnecessaril y tacking on a hardcore aesthetic.
Not bad for American metal

very interesting I am more of a black metal guy but this is very good all the same.
One of my favorite bands... I saw them in Atl and called the bassist and lead guitarist roadies after having bought a t-shirt from them (they were working the merch stand). Felt pretty dumb when they started playing.
"and id love to see em with necrophagist ! " What a coincedence, that's who I saw Arsis with. Necrophagist , Arsis, Neuraxis, and Alarum. So awesome. I could have gone my whole life without hearing Alarum, but it was worth seeing the rest of them.

With members who have attended Berklee School of Music, I have no doubt they will produce music that is worth listening to.
Ryan Knight is now the Black Dahlia's second guitarist. I can't wait to hear how they sound.
not my absolute favorite, but a good band. Reminds me of Arch Enemy with more thrash...ver y nice. :)

Sounds like Graves Of Valor and Martriden put together with alot more guitar work

Seems highly influenced by Heartwork era Carcass, some classic Iron Maiden, combined with a serious death/thrash metal ethic that is all their own. I thoroughly enjoy everything that I have heard from Arsis. They are a new band to me and I am going to be listening to them more in the future. Glad to know that they are from the U.S. as it seems most bands of worthiness hail from across the pond (Not knocking any other band from the states) Arsis can slay with the rest of them! Kudos to Arsis.
okay, Does James Malone play violin on any other album of arsis, because I never here one on We are the nightmare... n o r on wiki does it say he even plays violin. Did the writer of the above blurb mean to say the vocalist?
I really like this band. One of the few extreme metal acts with a positive vibe (even if the lyrics aren't, the music is). Also check out Neuraxis
