Formed in 2015, Anarcheon features vocalist Kaija Kinney, founder of Metalocalypstick Fest, the BC metal fest celebrating women in metal, along with guitarist Clayton Bach, bassist Sylvain Maltais and drummer Steve “Machine” Richardo (ex-Messiah, ex-Green Jellÿ).
With a band name playing off the word Anarchy, Anarcheon is more of a Frankenstein of their various influences with their powerhouse of shemonic screams, catchy riffs and energetic heavy bass leads. Stealing the hearts and souls of fans in the Vancouver area and beyond since their inception, the quartet recently unleashed their new EP “Stratusfear” this past October.
Their first music video “Etherous Claws” directed by Markham Samuels and produced by Whitelf Films tells the story of Anarcheon using the power of heavy metal to summon an ancient vampire from her slumber.
