Year Formed


Arceye is a four-piece death/thrash metal band from Shrewsbury UK. Since they formed in 2004 with a hand full of riffs and heavy music as their drive, they have been relentlessly unleashing their brand of extreme metal to the masses.

In 2009 they released their debut album 'The Divide Between Chaos & Order' the album was mastered by studio guru Russ Russell (Evile, Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir) and has been hailed as 'A Searing Cross-Genre Metal Eruption From The UK Underground'

Since the release of The Divide Between Chaos & Order Arceye have supported the likes of Decapitated, Man Must Die, Beholder, Finntroll & Kataklsym. They also closed The New Blood Stage at Bloodstock Open Air 2010 with over 500 people cramming into the tent to see them. One Metal said: 'Judging by the gathered masses packed into the relatively small marquee Arceye have established themselves a strong fan base'

2011 has seen Arceye release a brand new music video for 'Time And Tide', the track was also featured on the cover mount CD'S of Terrorizer & Metal Hammer. They also played the 3rd stage at Hammerfest 2011 with overwhelming good feedback from fans & critics alike.

Now proudly endorsed by Dean Guitars and +Battery energy drink Arceye will be returning to the studio to record their highly anticipated sophomore album and with the recent addition of former The Hollow Earth Theory drummer Craig Mackay it's already shaping up to be tighter, faster and more aggressive.
