the roster of a very talented, young and promising band from Riverside,

Please welcome ARKAIK to the ULR army!
Visit their myspace and check them out. Great brutallic force with a strong technicality in the mix.
Here is a statement from the band.
very proud to announce we have been added to the Unique Leader roster!
We have signed a two album deal and we will be entering Seahorse Sound
Studios this summer to record our full length debut album "Reflections
Within Dissonance" due out later this year. After the release, we plan
for extensive touring to promote the album. Unique Leader has always
been home to some of the best death metal acts around which is why we
feel being apart of a death metal label of this caliber is the best
move for us. We're looking forward to working with Erik and Unique
Leader to help establish Arkaik as a formidable musical force."

Listen to the music at



The manifestation of ARKAIK began with the intent to create the most versatile and original sound in existence, using only the most intense, extreme and passionate influences.
Caring not for the generic mediocrity that plagues the majority of all genres these days, they have fiercely sought after a sound that places them far above what is considered "The Norm."
Human nature leads us to question existence, to find new pathways of thought and logic.
ARKAIK is the musical representation of this form of idealology.
Simply listen to one song and the plethora of musical influences that form ARKAIK are devastatingly apparent.
This makes them appealing to all fans of heavy metal, regardless of their genre preference.
ARKAIK mixes melodic and brutal death metal with the arctic malevolence of black metal, adds the violent assault of grind and the ethereal beauty of lavish and sweeping soundscapes.

Simply put, ARKAIK is the epitome of brilliant heavy metal!!

Our music is completely original. Arkaik combines our favorite styles with our own vision and energy.

Our lyrics reflect how we feel combining current happenings with everyday life.
