Arkayic Revolt was formed in 2008 and released their debut EP, “Undead Man Walking” the same year, gaining an online buzz in the metal community and attracting the attention of Punishment 18 Records. The band signed to the Italian label for the release of their debut LP, “Death’s River,” in 2010, to critical acclaim and praise from thrash metal enthusiasts. In 2011, the band released the single “Innocence has Died,” but unofficially disbanded shortly after. Fast forward to 2023, Arkayic Revolt has reformed and released an EP called “Atlantis Rising” which features two new tracks – “The New Hypocrisy” and “Atlantis Rising.” The tracks hold on to the band’s thrash roots, while incorporating epic melodic passages and influences from a variety of metal sub genres.
