Official press release (Willowtip Records): Hot on the heels from their critically acclaimed debut, "A Celebration of Guilt," the unstoppable Arsis continue to fry minds and melt frets with their brand new 3-song EP, "A Diamond for Disease." Featuring the 13-minute title track, originally composed as a score for NYC's Ballet Deviare, A Diamond for Disease is an ultimate magnum opus of epic melodic death metal that explores layer upon layer of romantic lead guitar, that effortlessly manages to swim and dart between spidery mazes of mutating rhythms that recall the very best of "...And Justice For All" and "Heartwork." This is by far the band's most advanced material to date, as it was written from a standpoint of orchestral-like complexity, and as such, embraces a painstaking degree of detail in both harmony arrangement and melodic counterpoint. Look no further... "A Diamond for Disease" is an absolute swirling vortex of symphonic riff-o-rama destined to be 2005's most powerful sonic orgasm. "A Diamond For Disease" was recorded with Eyal Levi (Misery Index) at Hairy Breakfast Productions and mastered by James Murphy (Death, Testament, Disincarnate). The artwork and layout was created by the talented Mark Riddick. Arsis will perform live with Ballet Deviare January 6th - 8th at 59E59 Theaters in New York City. Please see www.balletdeviare.org for more information about this special performance. Arsis' "A Diamond For Disease" will be released in stores on October 25, 2005. A 3 minute sample of the epic 13 minute title track is available at Arsis' official website, www.worshipdepraved.com.
