Alpha Chrome Yayo Conceptually intense, 'SPIRIT | DEATH' is an album of sheer, utter heft. The weighty themes and crushing riffs are akin to an immovable object meeting an unstoppable force.

Ancestry is celebrated, but subject matter old and dark is tackled head on too; maybe I'm wrong but it feels like some measure of catharsis for Elay Arson.

And it's certainly a cathartic listen - a visceral outpouring of mammoth proportions.

Huge, in every way. Favorite track: Masauwu, Fire Keeper.

FREELANCER If you are looking for a synergy of dark-synth and metal, look no further. Elay Arson is a master of blending these two great styles of music seamlessly together, to create a dark work of imagination. The inclusion of cultural themes here is refreshing. Favorite track: Masauwu, Skeleton Man.

Long ago, there was Masauwu The spirit of death Earth God Master of The Fourth World Overseer to The Fifth Gate and the keeper The keeper of fire
Sussustanako 03:20
It was believed that Masauwu had a handsome face But no one knew for certain For he wore a heavy mask The people called him The Skeleton Man Because of the mask's appearance And because he was the spirit of death Because of this terrifying mask Masauwu was forced to roam the Earth Alone In solitude Forever
End Times 05:13


An intense album inspired by the themes of southwestern Native American stories, deities, subjugation, genocide, and the apocalypse.
This work pays homage to the Apache ancestry and childhood Hopi upbringing of band member Daniel Larson.
