Six piece Sydney melodic death metal merchants, Artemis Blade, will release their debut album on February 1st.

In line with the announcement, the band has released the first single, ‘The Fall‘. You can stream the song now below. A music video for the single, filmed in the Snowy Mountains of NSW and Victoria will be released in the new year.


Creeping out Sydney’s Hawkesbury region, Artemis Blade was born from ex members of The Blackened Beneath, Manic Deception, Divine Carnage and Atmosphere.

Artemis Blade formed to deliver heavy hitting melodic death metal. Memorable choruses surrounded by molten metal riffs, cinematic soloing and a European flavour that pays homage to the forefathers of the genre.

Produced by Adric Spearpoint at Dragons Den Studios in western Sydney, ‘As Above… So Below‘ is a journey of the mind. Covering themes such as the cosmos, time in isolation, fear and anger. With strong ties to mythology, space and time, this album explores the depths of serenity in chaos.

Future single, ‘Forsaken Light‘ also features a guest vocal appearance from Thy Art Is Murder’s CJ McMahon.

As Above… So Below‘ is will be available via their Bandcamp page and all digital outlets.
