Origin: Brasil
Label: Retroactive Records
Style: Thrash Metal


As the revival of the 80s styled thrash metal rolls on, ARNION enters the scene as legitimate heavyweight contenders for the title. Hailing from Brazil, ARNION began in 2003 with their music straight out of the 80s and 90s thrash metal scene. Inspired by the metal titans of the past, the band showcases heavy, fast and fierce metal sounds. ARNION's full-length release, "Fall Like Rain", features articulate riffs, gripping hooks and the muscular brute force that brings to mind KREATOR, ULTIMATUM, EXODUS, TOURNIQUET, TOXIC HOLOCAUST and AUSTRIAN DEATH MACHINE!

ARNION (Greek for "lamb of God") brings a full-on assault of metal attitude, but with an intelligent message. This all new Expanded Edition (available previously only as a 13 track import) is digitally remastered and includes the band's seven song 2006 "Refuge E.P." as an added bonus for fans.

Press Feedback

SLAYER und natürlich auch KREATOR sowie die alten SODOM scheinen hier die Väter zu sein – aber ebenso bedient man sich leicht beim 80er US-Powermetal. Reinhören kann man mal in das treibende "Get Ready For The War" und den in portugiesisch gehaltenen und als SEPULTURA Hommage angelegten Track "Manipulação S.A.".

"Refuge" was released in 2006 as a selfmade E.P., including 6-tracks and an intro. Retroactive Records signed later ARNION and released in 2009 their debut album "Fall Like Rain". It comes as an expanded edition, including the "Refuge" songs. New and older fans who don't get a copy of the original E.P., having again the chance to listen and enjoying to the first steps of these brasilian thrashheads.
