This past year found Arsis going through its fair share of lineup changes. Despite that, the Virginia tech-death metal group promised that they’d be back in full form with new music before the end of the year. And now thanks to Scion A/V metal, Arsis has kept true to the world.
Scion A/V Metal is offering Arsis’ new EP, Lepers Caress, completely for free. Produced by Zeuss, these six songs mark Arsis’ first fully complete songs released since 2010’s Starve for the Devil and gives us a taste of what to expect from the new album due out next year. But that’s not all Scion A/V’s doing. The heaviest indie imprint ran by a car company is also sponsoring Arsis’s upcoming headlining dates and tour with Sonata Arctica, AND is giving away two pairs of tickets to each show. All you have to do is follow them on Twitter (@ScionAV) and tweet “@ScionAV #Arsis [date of event]” for a chance to win tickets (official rules here).
