about

The debut EP by Michael Fox and Gabriel Williams under their group name 'Arkanjello'... It's like Archangels but if they were drunk.

This collaborative effort began in the Summer of 2015 as Gabe had uncertain post-secondary education plans, and the two explored part time jobs. Gabe turned 19 in September and immediately lost his ID and passport, which inspired any and all of the emotional tones on this release. Michael began work at a local music shop, toured with a Christian metal band and formed a jazz trio within the time of production.

Convinced they were able to put their creative minds together to create twisted phat b33tz, they began churning out tracks and ideas. This is the beginning of a series of planned releases as 'Arkanjello'.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Downloading the album for free or for a donation of your choice will give you access to a bonus track, as well as alternate album artwork and various graphic assets designed by Gabe Williams.

We appreciate all the support and will write personal thank you notes to anyone who provides a donation and includes their e-mail. All money will go towards our creative endeavors and gear purchases, ultimately contributing to an eventual full album release in the near future.

A huge thank you is owed to Ian Livingstone for his creative input and mastering skills, who is also known under the name 'Artifiseer' in regards to his music project, he can be found at artifiseer.bandcamp.com.

From his bio: "Artifiseer is the solo project of Canadian singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and engineer, Ian Livingstone. By combining twisted, noisy atmospherics, effervescent synth lines, and bizarre orchestration with effected percussion and layers of his brooding, agile vocals, Artifiseer offers a unique blend of experimentation and pop sensibility."

Of course, we hope you enjoy our debut.

about

Arkanjello Saint John, New Brunswick

Arkanjello consists of duo Michael Fox and Gabe Williams experimenting with legendary riffs and phat b33ts. Inspired by contemporary pop, metal, hip-hop and dance music, Arkanjello's blend of punishing distortion and 80s synths frame many of the ideas cultivated by the Saint John duo, occasionally featuring Michael's angelic vocal melodies or Gabe's choral rich bass tone. ... more
