So I was going through my CDS and I stumbled across a band that I completely forgot about. They are Arkayic Revolt from Canada and this shit rips man! I discovered this band on MySpace back in 2008 or 2009 if my memory serves me correct. I believe the band added me and had a message about giving away their new EP “Undead Man Walking” for free. I can’t remember the exact wording but I know they were just starting out and looking to get their name out there. I took advantage of the free copy and gave the band my name and address like the young eager thrash fan I was (and still am.) It had to have been at least three months later, when I came home from school and I found a package waiting for me. I had completely forgotten about Arkayic Revolt and my free copy of their EP. I opened the package and there it was, my forgotten CD. I remember the art work and the logo from long ago, prior to its arrival I had stopped using MySpace and lost touch with a lot of bands. I immediately popped the disc into my stereo and was impressed by what I heard. I listened to it a few times and then put it on my cd rack where it has sat forgotten, until today when I was shorting my CDS to make more room.
Loosing track of this band was a huge mistake on my part. I’m listening to this album and I really like what I hear, this band has a lot of potential. Since my foolish mistake the band has released a full length album entitled “Death’s River” and I cannot wait to get my hands on it. I’m definitely going to get back into these guys and I suggest you guys get into them if you’ve never heard of them. They’re great!
