Guitarist and vocalist James Malone states: “I believe ‘Visitant’ is ARSIS‘s most mature album however on the similar time, it is usually an album that harkens again to our youth.
“We all grew up on horror films. For me personally, my father would deliver me, from a really early age, to the theater to see horror movies. He handed his love of science fiction and horror right down to me.
“I wished to do one thing completely different for this album and it was only a pure transfer to include this ardour into ‘Visitant’.

“As I used to be doing my a part of the writing, I attempted to seize the tone and environment of a few of my favourite movies (‘Silver Bullet’, ‘From Beyond’, ‘Prince Of Darkness’). It was a really satisfying and enjoyable album to put in writing and I believe it is likely to be what followers contemplate a ‘worthy follow-up’ to ‘A Diamond For Disease’.”
The video for the primary single from the upcoming horror movie-inspired opus, “Tricking The Gods”, was directed by Rob Neilson and could be seen beneath.
“‘Tricking the Gods’ is impressed by my love of werewolf films, particularly Stephen King‘s ‘Silver Bullet’,” says Malone. I actually preferred the concept everybody within the city was searching for this beast and it turned out to be the individual they least anticipated: the minister. That blurred line between good and evil, heaven and hell made good songwriting gas.”
“Visitant” was recorded partly and blended and mastered by producer Mark Lewis (WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER, DEICIDE, CANNIBAL CORPSE). Artwork was created by longtime collaborator Mark Riddick.
