Progressive Melodic Death Metal outfit Archaic Decapitator is releasing their upcoming EP “The Apothecary” on April 19th and we have our extremely invaluable opinion on that upcoming effort! The band recently added Xenosis drummer Gary Marotta to their lineup as their drummer, and didn’t hesitate at all to get familiar with this band. If anyone in Xenosis (their album from last year was totally overlooked) has a hand in a project, I’m sure as heck going to check it out. And here we go!
The guys have a very melodic sound on their frantic EP, but add a little bit of progressive and black metal structuring to some of their sound. A couple of the tracks are longer, with track length not in mind as they seamlessly put together a stellar effort. If you love mixing your metal genres without sacrificing quality, Archaic Decapitator totally fits that to a tee.
