Arsis Guitarist Winning Battle Against Anorexia, Working on New Album
Published Sep 14, 2009Earlier this year, we found out that James Malone, the mad man behind technical death metal crew Arsis, had to take a break from the project due to an ongoing battle with anorexia. Fans can take a breath of relief, however, as Malone has revealed that he's doing better physically, and even at work on some new Arsis material.
In an official press release, Malone revealed the details for the project, saying, "Everything I have been working towards over the past year has become a reality; we are making the Arsis album that I have always wanted to make. We starting tracking drums yesterday and everything sounds amazing. Mike Van Dyne's playing just fits the songs so well, and it is great to be recording with one of my best friends again. I can honestly say that I have not been this happy in a long time. If the past few days are any indication of how the rest of the recording is going to go, then I feel certain that this will be our best work yet."
The album will be the band's fourth, and likely covers some very personal subject matter for Malone, even taking the title Starve for the Devil. A release date for the record has not yet been set.
