Pim B. : Even when Arkaik recorded their third album ‘Lucid Dawn’ with a renewed line-up their style hasn’t changed much. That’s quite extraordinary as this change concerns both guitarists. The new guitarists are Greg Paulson and Miguel Esparza (ex-Hatriot) and this duo shows they’ve got the technical skills to adapt to Arkaik’s style without causing any harm. Still this Californian act deals in technical death metal. They play their music in a way where we can hear actual songs with a flashy performance. If you like bands such as Pestilence, Gorguts, Severed Saviour or Suffocation, you should check this one out. By the way, the album got a different mix for the vinyl edition on red splattered wax.
