ARSIS "As Regret Becomes Guilt" CD


Negative Existence has officially released the demos of Arsis on a proper format. The album is entitled "As Regret Becomes Guilt". The disc contains remastered demos from 2001 & 2002 plus rare bonus tracks and a live video CD-Rom segment.

The music on the disc was recorded between 2001 and 2002 by guitarist/songwriter James Malone and drummer Michael Van Dyne. These demos gained them considerable attention in the underground music scene leading to several tours and landing them with recording contracts from several prospective labels. The two additional tracks found on this release are alternative studio takes never before released. The CDrom video segment was recorded April 12, 2003 at Pallette’s Outer Banks (Norfolk, VA).

“As Regret Becomes Guilt” features impressive packaging with a 12 page booklet that was designed by Mark Riddick. The ghastly illustrations and lyrics contained within this unique packaging are printed in black and metallic gold.

The CD can be ordered now from for $12.00.

Arsis is known for their unique blend of old school shredding heavy metal and modern gut wrenching death metal. A range of influences from Iron Maiden, Dio, and Alice Cooper to the modern sounds of Carcass, At The Gates and Death can be detected.

Arsis has since released two full length albums and one EP with Willowtip Records, and will soon release another full length on the Nuclear Blast label. Their complete discography is as follows:
Demo 2001 Demo, 2001
Demo 2002 Demo, 2002
A Celebration of Guilt Full-length, 2004
A Diamond for Disease EP, 2005
United in Regret Full-length, 2006
As Regret Becomes Guilt, 2007

Arsis has been touring since 20-- with such notable bands as Necrophagist, Cattle Decapitation, Job for a Cowboy, Goatwhore, God Forbid etc…

Negative Existence was created in 2007. The new label is currently working with respected artists Maniac Butcher, Demoncy, and now Arsis.
