EP - 2010 - Currently in progress



Forged together at the start of 2010, Shaun Langford - Ex Nevermine (Vocals), Dax Brown - Ex FearStrike (Guitar and vocals), Wayne Shelver - Ex FearStrike (Bass) and Ramone Pickover - Ex Ill System (Drums), pooled together years of musical experience and a vast array of musical influences, to create a template which they would re-shape into their own sonic matrix of sound.

Tired of the monotony of the South African metal scene, with a “screamo” band around every corner, these four individuals (or four horsemen of the Apocalypse if you will) combined their powers to unleash the A-Bomb of sound, which is: ‘Arc Reactor’!

Fusing together new and old school metal sounds, songs range from heavy and fast paced (Fragile and The Witching Hour) to Tool/Korn-esque bastardization (I, Obsolete) and that is just the beginning of what is still to come.

Arc Reactor played their first gig at Muzone in Brakenfell, Cape Town, on the 26 June 2010, to lots of praise and positive feedback.

Now, with many shows under their belt, Arc Reactor are presently working on their Debut Album/EP.

On the 22 September 2010 released their first single "No Reasoning" on the 'Holy Grail of Rock' slot on UCT Radio.
The single is presently available for free download on their facebook page.

Recently Arc Reactor were booked to play the legendary 'Bludjinn Festival' in Muzone on 23 October 2010, and have also been approached by Niva Records.
