Arkaik Debut “Order Of The Hierogon”, Psycroptic Guitarist Guests


A stream of the new Arkaik song “Order Of The Hierogon” has made its way online and is available below. Psycroptic guitarist Joe Haley lends a guest solo to his particular track. The band said of the cut:

“We really wanted to push our writing with this one, try some new things and challenge ourselves into making a massive track that explores the spectrum of our sound all in one song. We had the rare opportunity to work with Joe Haley from Psycroptic on a tasty guest solo and it came out better than we could have imagined.

As for the concept of the song as it relates to the story, Cyrix stumbles into a hidden territory called The City Of Secrets. He is introduced to a banished order of outsiders, mystics, sages, psychic warriors, historians, and oracles that preserve the lineage of knowledge contained within the ‘Order Of The Hierogon.’ Once welcomed into the inner circle of this mysterious group who seemed to have foreknowledge of his arrival, Cyrix is bestowed with mental and physical tools and training to make his passage through the Nexion Stargate, which takes place at the end of the album.

We created the word ‘Hierogon’ to describe a mystical navigation device that Cyrix inherits from his new allies. It is the ‘holy grail’ of the order. The Arkaik symbol you see in the beginning of this video is a visual representation of the Hierogon.”

Nemethia“, the new album from Arkaik, will be released this Friday, September 29th, through Unique Leader.
