All Shall Align
Archspire is a Canadian technical death metal band from Vancouver, British Columbia. They are currently signed to Season of Mist. The band was formed in 2007 as Defenestrated, but changed their name to Archspire in 2009. In April 2011, Trendkill Recordings released All Shall Align, the band's first album. It was recorded between May and December 2010 working with producer Stuart McKillop at The Hive studios.
Bleed the Future
In 2019, the band made tech news headlines when a duo of programmers called Dadabots created a neural network trained on Archspire's music to produce a non-stop stream of technical death metal based on the band's music; Dadabots also noted that Archspire's music produced the most consistent AI results, presumably because of the high tempo and technical machine-like nature of the songs. Archspire themselves also commented on the phenomenon, jokingly referring to themselves as robots. On October 30, 2021, Archspire released their fourth studio album Bleed the Future. Three singles were released: "The Golden Mouth of Ruin", "Bleed the Future", and "Drone Corpse Aviator". "The Golden Mouth of Ruin" and "Drone Corpse Aviator" singles were accompanied by music videos. The video for "Drone Corpse Aviator" was the first fully-produced video the band has made.
The Lucid Collective
In 2013, Archspire signed with Season of Mist, and recorded a second album with Stuart McKillop, at Rain City Recorders. On February 2, 2014, the band released a single from their upcoming album, "Lucid Collective Somnambulation", and in April released The Lucid Collective.
Relentless Mutation is the third studio album by Canadian technical death metal band Archspire, released on September 22, 2017. It is the first album to feature bassist Jared Smith, who replaced bassist and vocalist Jaron Evil who departed in 2014. The album is a concept album revolving around a telepathic cult called "A.U.M.", and their experiments on human biology.
