Sydney’s hardcore heavyweights Arteries have dropped their crushing new album Outdoor Claustrophobic, encapsulating the band’s signature blend of djent riffs, brutal breakdowns and magnetic vocals which evoke the polished ferociousness of extreme metal legendaries such as Meshuggah and The Dillinger Escape Plan.
Arteries on their sophomore album”Outdoor Claustrophobic is the title we decided on early 2019 before the world turned upside down and now it’s more relevant than ever. The music and themes in the songs were not taken lightly exploring deep issues of mental health and the human condition. Fine-tuning each section, each moment, to feel inspiring and take you into our minds over the course of the album was the main objective. Chaotic, rhythmic, groove-based without limits. That’s who we are and it’s what we do best. We harnessed our most memorable moments from our previous works and pushed them forward into the adaptation and production of this new album. This body of work took monumental growth, discovery and digging deep as a band over the past few years refining our version of what each song needs to be with a vision to execute. Every track on this album is the backbone of what the band wants to hear, experience and play live”.
