Arcadea recently unleashed their mind-bending self-titled debut album via Relapse Records. A full stream is available below, and you can order the album at this location.
Arcadea was born when drummer-vocalist Brann Dailor teamed up with upside-down guitarist & keyboardist Core Atoms to create a synth-laden progressive, heavy psych band. Adding guitarist Raheem Amlani on synth, the three recorded their visionary, 10 song synth odyssey at Orange Peel Studios in Atlanta, GA.

“Army Of Electrons” video:
Unlike their other bands, Arcadea uses only keyboards in a unique blend of crushing, organic drums and psychedelic synthesizers. The music is at once electronic but not electronica, synthetic but not processed, heavy but not metal.
The album envisions a future 5 billion years from now, where the impending collision of galaxies creates a new order of planets. Where cold, distant moons pledge alliance to new suns and expanding gas giants implode into black holes. Ancient drones, forever adrift, record toxic tales of love between dying stars. Where lifeforms in suspended animation, dream among the ice rings of Saturn and cosmic war wages among gods and planets. It is in this universe that Arcadea reign supreme as the last surviving space wizards since the final extinction.
