Arcadia

Born in 2000 in Italy the band was formed as a kind of all star extreme band (after at least 3-4 years of underground activity led by the 2 core members) recruiting members from all parts of the entire nation. After some shows Arcadia signed for its debut for NoBrain Records which let the band record and release the first "Synth".
In “Synth” the band tries to let its own coldness flow, an aggressive and intense attack to the listeners, that just sometimes leaves you breath and relax. Influenced by Fear Factory, Strapping young lad, Meshuggah, Metallica, Sepultura the band is focusing and creating its own style.
Being included in compilations released by NoBrain itself, POE records, Whiplash Prod. just to name a few, having toured in the whole Italy (from the very south Potenza to northern Bolzano) and being broadcasted by major radio ( Rock FM, Controradio, Radio rock,...) and TV shows (Rock TV, Terremoto, Showcase), the band achieves certain goals and sells more than 3000 copies of Synth.
Due to these achievements Arcadia, booked by Darkside Promotion, HM booking in Italy, RG Productions in New York and Hardebaran in Belgium, starts touring also in Europe, making good gigs in famous venues such as The Cave in Amsterdam, RockFabrik in Munich and Underworld in London, sometimes as opening act, others as main event. Not to forget that band was into the bill of the main stage of the “Italian Nu Metal fest 2003”. This rises the interest of Urlo Music, a division of EMI music, which let the guys recording a single entitled "Net Realm" and let them tour in the main Italian cities like Rome, Turin, Milan, Venice, Florence as Headliner and supporting Henry Rollins in his European tour.
After some changes in style and line up, Nadir Studios (owned by Tommy Talamanca, ex member of Sadist) starts cooperating with the band as producer of the new album, and let the guys record the new "Fracture Concrete" in Genoa and producing a videoclip for the forthcoming single "Prozac Generation". How the band is evolving is clear: high quality musicianship to express any feeling ARCADIA may undergo; inspirited by new artists and new sensations. The sound resulted is a mix of influences where you may find melodies in Earhtone9, Spineshank, Ill nino passing thru heavy riff ala Meshuggah, Mnemic and Fastest approaches like in Slipknot and Inflames. Never forgetting the will and the instinct to experiment always new things. The band has spent six months on the west coast promoting itself as a new sensation and getting known more and more also thanks to some US booking agencies. The band has also been approached by the same labels which asked them a couple of new songs and which will follow the band for a period analyzing the band’s work..Jenuary 2006 they come back to europe to write some new material, in december they change the bass player and in genuary 2007 they entered the studio for the recording sessions of the new album.
In 2007 the new record “Cold, Cold bodies” is out on Valery records and distribuited all over the world..
The band leaves on his third European tour in september 2007.
The tour in Europe is still going on and the record is going really good in all Europe...
