Oh shiiiiiiiiittt, time to get stoked, dudes! It looks like the mind fucking technical wizards in Behold.. .The Arctopus are poised to make a comeback in 2012. The band recently edited their Bandcamp description to
2001 – we spawned.
2012 – we respawned.
The group has also booked two shows in their native Brooklyn, NY. The first one being on February 16th at the Public Assembly and the second being February 24th at St. Vitus with Geryon (Nick McMaster and Lev Weinstein of Krallice) and Mindless Blasting (Mick Barr of Krallice, Orthrelm, and Shredship Earth). I am hoping our bros over at Metal Injection will be there cover at least one of these shows…
Also, some of you may remember that the band parted ways with drummer Charlie Z are few years back. To fill the void left by Charlie, the group has enlisted the amazing Weasel Walter, founder of The Flying LuttenBachers to play drum for them. I don’t know about you guys but I am fucking ready for some new BTA material. Let’s hope it happens this year, until then -
