“The EP takes you through a transition of a woman to a blood-thirsty beast. She longs for her bloodthirsty lady lover only to realize once she is turned she is someone she never imagined she could be. Out for souls and feeling no remorse. Feeling godly and that these mortals should just be thankful to be graced with such exquisite beauty.
One can as well take this EP as a metaphor for someone very lost in love and what is right and wrong. They often feel like they can be two different people once they have suffered a tragedy or heartbreak. Resulting in self-loathing and guilt that you ruined someone and can only protect yourself by turning off the consciousness hence feeling superhuman with no emotions to weigh you down.” – Anarcheon
Vancouver, BC’s ANARCHEON was formed in 2015 and features vocalist Kaija Kinney, founder of Metalocalypstick Fest, the BC metal fest celebrating women in metal, along with guitarist Clayton Bach, bassist Sylvain Maltais and drummer Steve “Machine” Richardo (ex-Messiah, ex-Green Jellÿ). With a band name playing off the word Anarchy, ANARCHEON is more of a Frankenstein of their various influences. Demonstrating shemonic screams, catchy riffs, and energetic heavy bass leads, the band has released an EP “Stratusfear” in 2017, two stand-alone singles in 2020 “Sir.Traline” and “Headless Horseman” along with a lone single to kick off 2021 with “Bloody Merry”.
Now, this coming Fall 2021, the band is ready to serve up their next recording “Scary Tale”, a story EP to take fans through a vampiric journey into the dark side of Anarcheon. Lyrically it’s very different from what Anarcheon has released in the past, but musically this EP is a maturing step forward for the band’s brand of grooving melodic death metal.
ANARCHEON has shared the stage with multiple bands from the Western Canadian metal scene and beyond such as Nervosa, The Agonist, Butcher Babies, and more.
