Torn in Two


The land down under, or more specifically Adelaide, South Australia, is home to this burgeoning metalcore music machine. Citing local acts I Killed The Prom Queen and Parkway Drive as large influences, it’s easy to begin to imagine what Arcadia sound like. Now factor in remaining inspirations such as All That Remains, Killswitch Engage, Trivium and even Iron Maiden, and that previous sonic vision starts to get a little fuzzy and difficult to nail down. In a nutshell, that’s Arcadia’s sound – they’re instantly familiar, yet remain unique. Their metal/hardcore-based music is simultaneously technical yet melodic and catchy yet crushing.
