about

Technical/progressive metal band WHITE ARMS OF ATHENA have signed to PROSTHETIC RECORDS. The Mesquite, TX-based act’s debut full-length, “Astrodrama,” which was produced by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, The Human Abstract), will be released on August 16. The band previously released three EPs, which can be downloaded for free on their MySpace. DECIBEL MAGAZINE commented on the band: “”These guys have the polished chops of lifelong shredders and a compositional sensibility that many older progressive metal musicians would gladly sell their ponytails to attain.”

The band’s music expands on the already vast array of attributes that come with a progressive metal band. With sounds ranging from cluttered grind riffs paying tasteful respects to Between the Buried and Me, solid heavy riffs to bang your head to, and peacefully structured ambient passages that soothe you just in time for another full-on attack of the senses, this band does it all with precision and originality.

Their lyricism and overall vibe from the instruments give their tunes a certain futuristic, other-worldly touch that only heavy-hitters in progressive metal such as Cynic can pull off. This is a major sign of a band that knows their music inside and out, and makes “Astrodrama” seem like a very promising sign of things to come.
