In Dying Arms
Merging frenzied sonic mediations on violence with the occasional moment of heart-on-sleeve plaintiveness, In Dying Arms' brand of bipolar deathcore covers the extreme ends of both the emotional and sonic spectrums. Based in Baltimore, Maryland, the brutal quintet got started in 2006, going through some initial growing pains before settling into a lineup consisting of singer Orion Stephens, guitarists Jeremy Magee and John Myers, bassist Terence Bright, and drummer Alvin Richardson. With a sound that artfully blends the passion of post-hardcore with deathcore's technically stunning aggression, In Dying Arms' anguished, atmospheric riff-fests set them apart from their contemporaries, allowing them to not only play with the dynamics between the two genres, but to create a genuine interplay between them, giving their music an intriguing amount of depth. In 2009, the deathcore outfit made their debut with the EP This Is Retaliation before eventually signing on with Matchless Records (the label of Chelsea Grin's Chris Kilbourn) the following year, with their first full-length, Deprivation, following closely behind. Keeping busy, In Dying Arms jumped straight back into the studio, following up in 2011 with their eponymous second album. In 2012, the band signed on with Artery Recordings, which put out their third album, Boundaries, later that year. ~ Gregory Heaney
