IO Exclusive Track Premiere: Behold The Arctopus’ “Horrorsentience”

Since 2007, Behold The Arctopus has made some serious changes. Dropping the ellipsis from their name, bringing in jazz-noise-skronk-based drummer Weasel Walter, and ushering in more of a black metal influence–likely from guitarist Colin Marston who continues to expand the genre in his recent endeavors with Krallice–the band has shuffled around and tightened up in more ways than one.

Returning with their first full-length since 2007’s debut album Skullgrid, Behold now embarks on an exploration of horror with their latest album, Horrorscension. The album’s first single, “Horrorsentience”, carries over the naming convention for a driving instrumental track–check out the endless blast-beats and shred riffs below. Horrorscension will be released on October 23rd.
