ARKAIK Announce New Album “Lucid Dawn”

Arkaik-Promo-Aug2015

Californian progressive death metal outfit Arkaik have announced the release of their third full-length album. The album will be titled Lucid Dawn and will be released on October 30 via Unique Leader. Engineered, mixed and mastered by Zack Ohren (Suffocation, Fallujah, etc), Lucid Dawn will feature 10 new tracks and guest appearances by Trevor Strnad and Ryan Knight of The Black Dahlia Murder, as well as Bay Are live string quartet, AmaranthLucid Dawn is the second installment in a series of concept albums revolving around Cyrix, a disillusioned character in a dystopian society. In Cyrix’s world, dreaming is systematically controlled by a tyrannical ruler named Khaal-Li-Phar and his army of dark shamans, where people are forced to build monuments to the tyrant to stifle their imaginations and inhibit their ability to achieve a multi-dimensional existence. Lucid Dawn is a death metal take on American mythologist, writer and lecturer, Joseph Campbell’s monomyth, and the beginning of Cyrix’s “Hero’s Journey.”
