Arsenic Addiction / Bio

Hailing from Salt Lake City, Utah, Arsenic Addiction was formed in 2006. With powerful, explosive beats, menacing and
melodic strings, soaring vocals and demonic howls, Arsenic Addiction injects something unique into today’s metal scene. “Music resembles life,” they say, “and such as life, no one influence shapes who we are today, and who we will be tomorrow."
The band Arsenic Addiction is dedicated to the dead as opposed to the living and merges the funereal with Metal - aiming to awaken the darker side in each of us and to evoke the spirit of times past. Arsenic Addiction released their first EP, “Requiem of the Fallen” in 2009 and received extensive radio play and features in local media. “The most important thing about these songs,” according to SLUG MAGAZINE, “is they’re all backed with real emotion because in the end, who really wants to listen to a band pretend to be angry and sorrowful when you can get the real deal.” They then toured widely in Utah and neighboring States, sharing the stage with bands such as The Birthday Massacre, Dommin, Flaw and KREEP.

The band’s second release, “An Undertaker’s Lament" followed in August 2010, with the trademark Arsenic Addiction mourning metal
lyrical and musical story telling and Gothic Victorian attire. To take it a step further a Victorian meets Vaudeville stage show accompanies their live performances. "An Undertaker's Lament" has had local and international features and reviews and receives regular airplay throughout the Western United States on internet and physical radio as well as international. "It is mournfully violent metal that has the chameleon-like ability to interest fans of different genres." The band has also filmed an official music video for song "Lady Death" to add a touch of their live shows to the music for fans lovingly referred to as "addicts" world wide.

To open 2012 Arsenic Addiction has opened for national acts Sepultura, Death Angel, Krisiun, and Havok and announced their plans for to release new album "Echoes of Mourning: Communion with the Damned" and their Brewtalitea tour this upcoming fall.
