ARC is a Canadian trio (Aidan Baker - guitars, flutes, tapeloops, Richard Baker - drumkit, percussion, Christopher Kukiel - percussion) playing tribal guitar drone ambient with psychedelic and post - rock elements and very hypnotic sound. Their brand new album Arkhangelsk brings 4 compositions in 67 minutes and comes in nice 6 panels digisleeve and is limited on 600 copies.

Arkhangelsk was recorded in Toronto, Canada in December 2007 in two separate sessions. The first consisted of improvisational performances on drumset and guitar and the second consisted of layering percussion, electronics, and woodwind tracks on those original drum/guitar tracks. Both sessions were done in real-time in single takes with a minimum of post-production editing or manipulation in an effort to capture the spontaneity of the performances. As such, Arkhangelsk maintains the typical ARC sound while simultaneously exploring more adventurous poly-rhythms and textures, combining influence/inspiration from such artists as Flyer Saucer Attack, The Boredoms, Tribes of Neurot, and Rapoon.

About Us

The beginnings of EPIDEMIE RECORDS stretch back to the 1993 when D.I.Y. hardcore / punk / grind label was born from a small underground zine and demo tapes distribution.

In the second half of the nineties, we got known as the label focused on the death metal and grindcore, sometimes overlapping to more experimental genres.

Actual profile of our label is very difficult to define. We produce different genres, but we prefer to release what we like the most: drone, ambient, black metal, funeral doom, avant-garde metal. We place emphasis on the graphic design and the whole process of releasing. We have succeeded to more than 80 releases.

In spite of the releasing activities we keep a large CDs mail-order distribution.

Occasionally we engaged in organizing concerts and we do club festival PRAGUE APOCALYPTIC EVENING, which aims to present in Prague the best of the world dark ambient / folk / industrial scene.
