Arshenic: A very experimental and fascinating band…..

Arshenic - Bloodsucker

Arshenic is a dark rock metal band from Poland. Arshenic’s music is based on experimenting with metal, goth rock, folk, progressive rock and electronic.  

The music of Arshenic is inspired by such trends as art rock, alternative metal, progressive rock, goth metal, melodic metal and dark rock. The name of the band is a reference to arsenic, which is a poison and also a cure. That duality can be easily heard in the group’s songs. A strong female charismatic image is the calling card of the band and the sound is mainly defined by the various types of female vocals, both singing and screaming, clean and distorted guitars, diverse bass parts and dynamic drum playing with a little flavor of electronics, cellos and orchestral sounds in the background.

 Arsenic’s lyrics cover topics like individualism, self-expression and inner emotional states and are written mostly in a dark poetic manner.The track Bloodsucker,

lyrics:

You came to me

To make you whole again

I took

You piece by piece

Broken beyond repair

You’re calling agan

calling agan

I’m tired of loosing this game

I’m running away

Running away

Sometimes you win

Sometimes you learn

Drink all you want

Like blood really only thing

You ever sucked overall

You took final drop

And now you’re saying my name

Like it’s a bad word  

I’ve been there, you’ve done that

But I never took part in this crime

You made me wrong and nothing ever can make it right

Don’t waste my time

I clean the mess that you’ve done

This won’t take long

I threw your shit outta door

I’m running away

Running away

Sometimes you win

Sometimes you learn

Drink all you want

Like blood really only thing

You ever sucked overall

You took final drop

And now you’re saying my name

Like it’s a bad word  

I’ve been there, you’ve done that

But I never took part in this crime

You made me wrong and nothing ever can make it right

Oh the good souls

We only learn it hard way

So hurt me more

And drown me in your sorrow

Pull me and twitch

Taste misery

Bend me backwards

We’re not the type

Who use the safe word

Don’t crywolf

We’ll take turns

Don’t you know?

Bad thing never dies

Bloodsucker by Arshenic, one of 4 new singles to be released this summer, by DI Records (USA), premiere 04.06.2021.Some days ago the Polish alternative rock/metal band Arshenic released their first new single, called Bloodsucker. The other 3 new singles will follow the coming months, each time with a release at the beginning of each month.

Arshenic is a Polish band with a female front, playing heavy music on the edge of rock and metal. The second full album Final Collision, was released in 2019 through Sliptrick Records.

Last year, at the beginning of the pandemic, Arshenic released a cover of Where Did You Sleep Last Night, along with a music video shooted on the cliffs of Polish most cinematic beach.

The same year, Ofilia, the band’s vocalist, was nominated by an international jury for the Best Clean Vocal 2020 FemMetal – Female Goddesses of Metal award, after which she was awarded first place in this category.

Bloodsucker is an energetic, rock-metal track. The beginning of which is inspired by the atmosphere of old school metal of bands such as Motorhead, Alice Cooper or AC / DC, combined with the melodiousness of nu metal and contemporary electronics. At the band’s climax, the song turns into a progressive ballad with a post-rock vibe, vocals with a classic and musical feel. As a result, we have a one-of-a-kind piece that not only immediately catches the ear, but also surprises with its form.

Band members:

Ofilia (Oliwia Bartus Staszak) vocals, lyrics

Vlad (Włodzmierz Czuba) guitars, electronics

Bartosz Staszak, drumms

Om Ulf Backstrøm (5513 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
