Posted on August 22, 2013

Up and coming technical death metal force ARCHSPIRE (Tobi Morelli – Guitar; Spencer Prewett – Drums; Dean Lamb – Guitar; Jaron Evil – Bass & Vocals; Oli Peters – Vocals) have announced a fall Canadian headlining tour. The band will criss-cross Canada for a month starting on September 20th in Victoria, BC and ending in their hometown of Vancouver, BC on October 20th. The tour will also see ARCHSPIRE joined by label-mates BEYOND CREATION as a headliner on select Ontario dates.

ARCHSPIRE is currently finalizing the recording of their forthcoming Season of Mist debut at Vancouver’s Rain City Recorders. The band recently released studio footage taken from the recording process here.

ARCHSPIRE has taken the world-wide extreme metal scene by storm with their unique blend of blindingly fast, hyper aggressive technical death metal. The five piece are a national headliner in their home country of Canada, and have toured Europe supporting DECAPITATED, ABORTED, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, and more. The band recently supported CANNIBAL CORPSE, NAPALM DEATH, and IMMOLATION as regional openers of the Decibel Magazine Tour 2013, and have also supported HATE ETERNAL, PIG DESTROYER, ORIGIN, and many more.

“If you are asking, “Is there something new to do in Death Metal?” ARCHSPIRE is the answer”-

“This is a truly eye-popping convulsion of tech-death, with schizophrenic rhythms, astounding technical riffing and drumwork, and tiny threads of reappearing melody that stitch the songs together into cohesive wholes. And I’m not sure I’ve ever heard a death-metal vocalist bark out the lyrics faster than ARCHSPIRE’s . . . . This is most definitely a band to keep your eyes on; you will hear more about them.” – No Clean Singing

“ARCHSPIRE have released a gem. It’s definitely technical death, and it adroitly blends elements of various tech death bands together. The rhythm guitar work varies from choppy and percussive to fluid and melodic. The blasting and double bass work are absurdly fast, but remain fluent and rhythmic rather than wooden or jittery. The hard to soft musical transitions are as natural as I’ve ever heard in this genre.” –

“The pick-me-up comes in the form of ARCHSPIRE, a gang of happy-looking Canadians who might have been widely unknown to most present before this performance, but surely no longer. With a technical proficiency bordering on OMFG levels, they still achieve what lacks in a lot of other bands like this: the feat of actually writing songs. What’s more, they noticeably enjoy what they do, so smiles are abundant even if face-peeling technical death metal about alien monoliths and planets being devoured is going on.” – Terrorizer magazine
