Archspire - Bleed The Future


Now this is a monster record. I almost didn't press play on the new Archspire record simply because tech death isn't really my jam. Then I remembered how much I liked the bands 2017 effort (Holy crap has it really been four years?) Relentless Mutation and decided I had to listen .I am so glad I did. This is a band who prove once again that they are in a league of their own crafting stunning songs and proving consistently that there is more to the tech death genre than people give them credit for, and pushing their own boundaries in increasingly exciting and acrobatic ways. 

This record goes above and beyond on what makes Archspire, Archspire. Not only is there the album closer "A.U.M", the bands fastest song to date ,but there are oodles of flashy guitar parts, and chunky vocal deliveries. The unique patterns the band employs really shine through here but fit nicely into a larger death metal framework. Bleed The Future impresses with not just how it ties into the bands classic elements, but also how it tries to grow them, adding further dynamics and keeping the songwriting as addictive as possible. It's clear that these songs were written with the live stage in mind, specifically for conjuring up pits. 

Bleed The Future is a stunning offering that resolutely reminds us just how good Archspire are. They legitimately have a shot to be one of the great death metal bands of their generation, flawlessly bringing in a variety of elements from grind to groove metal into their tech death sound and making it something that is wholly their own. This is a truly insane offering and one that will keep pits going throughout the world for years to come. Are you ready to get in the pit and rage with these madmen? Because it's worth it.

Pre-order the record!
