"Arriver seem to acknowledge the courage and perseverance involved in such a battle with their eruptions, interludes, and grand pillars of riffage, but their sonic fury rests on an undercurrent of righteous anger provoked by the tragedy and futility of war. It's a testament to the genius of this band that they can turn a subject you might dismiss as interesting only to military-history nerds and war gamers into something that can grab you by the throat—at least if you can use your head and bang it at the same time." —Monica Kendrick

Center Down

"...a punishing assault of riffs that call to mind Neurosis at their most melodic or even the epic war-metal of say Manowar or Saint Vitus all contained within a song about stranded whalers that resort to cannibalism."-Permanent Records Update

ARRIVER tells the true-life story of an African coup gone awry.

"...terrifyingly focused, even as they shift nonchalantly between robotic Meshuggoid thrash, proggy riffing, stoner-rock swagger, techy death metal, and bursts of nasty grind—they’re like floodlights cutting through the fog of war."

The debut. ARRIVER creates a mythology to tell a classic tale of order (Vanlandingham) and chaos (Zone).

"The scope of Arriver is astounding...This first album of theirs is an example of what a diverse collection of musicians can do when impassioned and inspired by a singular vision. This is cohesive in the way that all concept albums should be; not unnecessarily knob-twistingly complex, but progressive enough to establish its own sound and earn its own accolades."
