Kerrang (Magazine) (p.47) - "WE ARE THE NIGHTMARE is brimming with classic metal soloing....Arsis positively glisten."

Arsis defy many stereotypes about metal--the band assembled amid the academic atmosphere of the prestigious Berklee College of Music. Yet, as of NIGHTMARE, Arsis aren't quite math metal or prog-metal; they're of the gloomy/doomy stripe of their Scandinavian death-metal cousins. But they also leaven their brutal, growl-voiced, thrashy approach with an engaging sense of melody. So the hammer of Arsis crashes down, but laying havoc with true style.
