Behold the Arctopus, winner of the best band photo ever Behold the Arctopus

Technical metal favorites Behold the Arctopus are back to wield the Warr guitar on Horrorscension, the band's new LP out now via Black Market Activities. Stream the entire LP below.

Though BTA have no tour dates on tap, Dysrhythmia (featuring Colin Marston) are currently touring their little (blackened) hearts out. Look for the band to hit Public Assmebly on 11/17 as part of a show with Loincloth and STATS (tickets). Dysrhythmia's new LP Test of Submission is out now via Profound Lore (for CD) and Nerve Altar (for vinyl).

serious musicians who don't take their image too seriously. all you have to do is stream the tracks to deduce that.

What's wrong guys? No 4/4 breakdowns? No sound replacement/drum triggering to make up for a shitty post-harcore wannabe drummer?

Don't like it? I'm sure your A Day To Remember CD is still in your CD player. Just hit play.

Weasel Walter is a stud. Jealous bitches fuck off.

Posted by Anonymous | October 26, 2012 1:05 PM

5:38 if you were as "self absorbed" as the weez, you might have accomplished 1/10th of what he has artistically. /

if you were as "obnoxious" as him, you'd be a hell of a lot more fun at parties.

Posted by Dorf on Golf | October 26, 2012 1:24 PM

^ If you mean artistically by trying to co opt No Wave & Black metal in the most misinterpreted way then he's succeeded.
He acts like a gossipy junior high kid. Theres been many musicians from NYC and elsewhere who have said the same sentiment.

Yes people are jealous of a guy who talks shit about every other musician in NYC and has a huge ego.

Posted by Anonymous | October 26, 2012 6:24 PM

LISTEN TO ANILIVORE at 7:35 on. Judas fuckin' christ, that's a sick drum part.

That's funny, i know for a fact he's done a shit ton to help a lot of people out, musicians especially

You can't stand the heat, well, move back to the 'burbs, and play indie-rock there, p/c shit-turd.

Posted by Anonymous | October 26, 2012 7:47 PM

Theres much better metal without contentious pricks 7:47 PM and just as good drumming.

Two guys I talked to at Acheron a year ago and people from Chicago in NYC have said he goes out of his way to bad mouth others which seems to be a theme with him as well as others saying he's bitter for not having more recognition.

i talked to these two dudes and they were like, he's all like this and i was like, wait, and they were like "yeah", and i was like "man" and they said he said that i said and shit. duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Posted by Anonymous | October 27, 2012 1:16 AM

So, there's some here guys "badmouthing" Walter because he badmouths people, and some guys gossiping anonymously like "junior high kids" about how he gossips like a junior high kid. Way to call the kettle black, you douches. I guess that's just Brooklyn Vegan posters for you.

I've seen this guy play a few times through the years and he seems funny, but maybe a little hyper or something. Whatever.

What I have to wonder is, that if he's such a pain in the ass, why is it that he is constantly able to work with some of the best musicians at all times? He must be doing something right.

Sausage; "Naw, Burzum's kinda gone hipster now. I bought dis shirt way back when dey was still cool. I listen ta stuff ya probably never heard uh. Stuff like Behold da Arctopus an' Dysrhythmia."

Posted by doug graves | October 27, 2012 10:56 PM

Like, I was at this party back in 1997 and that Walter Weasel guy came and he was really loud and made fun of me and now I hate him. Boo hoo. How dare he?

Also he talked shit about my mom and some other band that sucks balls. This invalidates everything he's ever done.
