"AT FIRST LIGHT"
ARCEYE is a four piece Thrash / Death Metal band from the United Kingdom. These guys
play a killer blend of old school Thrash Metal that is blended with elements of modern
Death Metal music. The music does tend to lean more towards the Thrash Metal side a lot
more. The music has that classic Bay Area Thrash Metal sound, that reminded me of
TESTAMENT during their "SOULS OF BLACK" album mixed with some newer
EXODUS material. The majority of these influences were coming through on the guitar
sound. There are the more mid ranged Thrash Metal grooves that run through a lot of the
songs, with some higher more melodic guitar parts. The guitar work reminded me of Alex
Scholnick Of TESTAMENT a lot. The rest of the band has more of a Death / Thrash
Metal vibe that was more like newer EXODUS material. The vocals were done in a mid
ranged harsh Death Metal growl style that is understandable mixed with higher pitched
Thrash screams. These guys are a killer Thrash Metal band that would make any Thrash
Metal fan pleased. These guys are so good, that they could probably hold their own with
the big four (METALLICA, MEGADETH, SLAYER & ANTHRAX)! Check these guys
out and blast it loud and often! Thrash til' Death!
