New Music Monday: Arcite – Removed

Ahead of its proper release on 26 May, we're premiering the new video from Arcite.

While at face value it’s another metalcore track, Arcite are damningly heavy and with chugging riffs falling out of their perfectly honed beards. Evoking memories of Alive Or Just Breathing era Killswitch Engage, this Geordie arsenal are packing a solid punch of melodic metal well worth your time. Check it.

Luke Morton joined Metal Hammer as Online Editor in 2014, having previously worked as News Editor at popular (but now sadly defunct) alternative lifestyle magazine, Front. As well as helming the Metal Hammer website for the four years that followed, Luke also helped relaunch the Metal Hammer podcast in early 2018, producing, scripting and presenting the relaunched show during its early days. He also wrote regular features for the magazine, including a 2018 cover feature for his very favourite band in the world, Slipknot, discussing their turbulent 2008 album, All Hope Is Gone.
