Arsis adds new drummer, bassist

Wednesday, November 12, 2008 2:42 PM PT


The Arsis revolving door of drummers keeps turning as Borknagar drummer David Kinkade has now joined the group. Frontman Jim Malone says, "For starters, we will be heading overseas in a few weeks for our first European tour ever where we have the pleasure of sharing the stage with Morbid Angel, Kataklysm, Marduk, and Keep of Kalessin... We would also like to thank Shawn Priest for playing drums with us for the past four months and we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. Starting with the European tour, we will be working with drummer David Kinkade, formerly of Malevolent Creation and Divine Empire. David also plays drums in Borknagar and I feel that we'll be working with him for a long time. He is one the most ‘real’ people that I have ever met."

Kinkade had the following to say: "I am very excited to join the ranks of Arsis. James, Ryan and I have many of the same influences and goals in what we want out of a band and in our overall drive for music. The tunes are fun to play and I can't wait to see what the future brings with these phenomenal musicians. The set list is sounding sick at rehearsal and I trust that the upcoming tour, being Arsis European debut, will crush Europe. As posted last week, I have also joined Borknagar as the new full-time drummer. Neither of the obligations in both bands will interfere with each other. Just expect a lot of activity on my end in these next few months. See you all on tour."

Meanwhile, bassist Nick Cordle has also joined the group, replacing recently departed Noah Martin. Cordle adds, "It's a huge honor and thrill to join Arsis! The shows so far have been a pretty damn good time and it's a great privilege to play and hang with James, Ryan, and David. Arsis have been a favorite band of mine for many years now and to be able to play a role in its future is quite excellent. I'm drawing a huge amount of energy from the atmosphere in the band both musically and personally -- we are deadly focused and out for blood! The European tour is going to be truly wicked!"

fck, do we really need another shitty hardcore/power metal band, let alone one fronted by a shitty goth kid? fck this. Break up already.

11/12/2008 2:49:22 PM
power metal?

11/12/2008 3:00:51 PM
hardcore/power metal ??? celebration of guilt is one of the best american melodic death metal releases to grace my ears.

11/12/2008 3:09:10 PM
dude wtf, this is like there 3 or 4th drummer this year. and second bass player. out of the watn lineup ryan is the only one left. malone must be a total dick to work with or something.

11/12/2008 3:11:37 PM
I'm lost when the fck did Arsis become HARDCORE/POWER metal?!

11/12/2008 3:12:56 PM

11/12/2008 3:15:16 PM

11/12/2008 3:23:16 PM
I can't keep up anymore with all of the members changes in this band. They're still awesome though.

11/12/2008 3:29:15 PM

11/12/2008 5:24:10 PM
Hahahahaha, stupid gays^^^ Arsis are not even close to a real metal band. And their singer is a goth gay, like most of you. Maybe y'all should spend some time at some shows in RVA and get to know what his "friends" really think of him.

11/12/2008 5:34:58 PM
This band needs to quit

11/12/2008 5:58:54 PM
fckwad, NO ONE here would, be classified a "goth gay." Regardless, you are a news-only poster, which means you don't know shit.

11/12/2008 6:22:31 PM
yeah, listen to that gay "y'all"

11/12/2008 7:40:55 PM
Sad to admit but Arsis sucks now.

11/12/2008 8:55:25 PM
Arsis have been a favorite band of mine for many years now and to be able to play a role in its future is quite excellent. I'm drawing a huge boner.

11/12/2008 9:51:12 PM
blackpower: post a video of you playing something you wrote that is deemed better than something James Malone could write, or a video of you playing his shit better than him... otherwise, shut the fck up and hang yourself.

11/12/2008 11:06:22 PM
Next month John Longstreth will join Arisis, then he'll have one of his storied "I'll beat Christ. Im going to kill myself. Buddy Rich is my idol. There is no god, god I hate myself!!!1" meltdowns, then Kevin Tally will join.

It's amazing how "adults" get butt-hurt when their favorite bands are outed as the gays they are. Unbelievable. Keep doing diving boards off Arsis' dicks bros, Jimmy has enough coke to go around. hahahahaha
