// About Us //
A Three-piece Sheffield band originally coming together in 2012 with the premise of creating atmospheric, heavy and melodic music. Writing songs influenced by the likes of Neurosis, Isis, Russian Circles, Mastodon and Cult of Luna. Creating a vast soundscape of sludge riffs and moving ambient melodies & big textures.
The release of our second EP ‘II’ followed by a run of shows in the UK with bands such as Iron Witch, Pijn, Torpor, Fvnerals, Hundred Year Old Man, Mastiff and more, Archelon are establishing themselves in the metal scene not only for our huge sound but also our intensely atmospheric stage show of;
“post-rock meets a wall of noise, with crushing riffs for an airbag”
Having recorded in Nø Studio in late August 2017 debut album ‘Tribe of suns’ was released 4th May 2018 to very high praise.
“Monolithic and frankly epic in scope, Archelon’s debut record Tribe Of Suns is more than just another brainy metal album. It’s the sort of post-metal odyssey that few groups dare take. The band travels through wonderfully dense aspects of the darker side of the human psyche through the lens of ancient civilizations.” – Metal Injection
2019 Promises to be a bigger year for the band and we hope to see you on our journey!
