Arkaik Tap The Black Dahlia Murder Members On New Album, Reveal Tour With Bermuda & Enfold Darkness


Arkaik‘s third full-length album “Lucid Dawn” will feature guest turns from The Black Dahlia Murder‘s Trevor Strnad (vocals) and Ryan Knight (guitars), as well as strings from Amaranth. Producer Zack Ohren (Suffocation, All Shall Perish) oversaw this latest release, which the band laid down at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. As for the continuing conceptual theme of the album, I’ll let the press release do the talking:

Lucid Dawn” is the second installment in a series of concept albums revolving around Cyrix, a disillusioned character in a dystopian society. In Cyrix’s world, dreaming is systematically controlled by a tyrannical ruler named Khaal-Li-Phar and his army of dark shamans, where people are forced to build monuments to the tyrant to stifle their imaginations and inhibit their ability to achieve a multi-dimensional existence. “Lucid Dawn” is a death metal take on American mythologist, writer and lecturer, Joseph Campbell’s monomyth, and the beginning of Cyrix’s “Hero’s Journey.” Musically and conceptually, Lucid Dawn carries the listener on a visceral exhibition through the depths of evil and beyond the threshold of mundane reality.”
