Behold… the Arctopus excels at uncommonly bug-eyed tech metal. The local instrumental trio's output is ultracomplex, but far from passionless; a very human sense of sci-fi–style wonder informs these gnarled, blast-beat–driven epics. Also on board here are prog-grind mainstay Child Abuse and punishing death-metal duo Geryon.
