ARCITE “We Lie Awake”

“We Lie Awake”
I’ve recently had a chance to re-evaluate the British metal scene. There are more new promising bands than I thought there was. And for that I’m ever grateful. If it wasn’t for the British bands heavy metal as we know it would not be the same. The word on Arcite is that they’ve taken a page or two from the In Flames manual on how to be a melodeath band and be successful at it. I’ve said it before and I’ll probably say it again; I like melodeath done with heart and soul. While not being too obvious In Flames-esque, Arcite are more Americanized, you can hear were all these new metalcore bands have got their sound from. Since I haven’t paid too much attention to the whole metalcore scene I have no idea what bands to compare Arcite too. But I know so much to understand that they have the break-downs, the screamy vocals and the clean ones that pretty much is standard form 1A for metalcore. I can see this making the rounds on student radio across the Globe and had I heard it on the radio I too had digged it. Anders Ekdahl
