This is the last song to be recorded by the original lineup of my instrumental, progressive metal band ARC. I think this is the proudest i've ever been of anything i've written/recorded, so please give it a listen and see what you all think! Its a really dark, really heavy song with some bizarre melodies scattered throughout. I especially love the ending. Thanks for listening!

Oh, gear rundown... most all the rhythm tracks were done using my mahogany Ibanez RG7 custom in drop A. That guitar has the Dimarzio D-Activator Neck pickup in the bridge position, and it fucking crushes. I love it. There is a little layering on a few riffs that was done using my RG7620 with the Bareknuckle Aftermath set (the one i use for the Mastodon cover videos). Some of the leads were done using Luke's RG1527 with D Sonic 7 in the bridge, and the main solo was back to my mahogany RG7. I think a Dunlop Crybaby was used on that solo, too.
Rhythm tracks were AXE FX Ultra, lead tones were mostly Splawn, main solo amp was a Framus Cobra, and most all the clean tones were the Splawn, too. Thanks for listening!
Wow, very impressive!! Love 4:00 to 5:00, very Opethy. Cleans on the Splawn sound great. This definitely deserves to be heard!
I wish i had 4 hands so i could give it 4 thumbs up!
