about

Archons San Diego, California

Skipping across the inky depths of heavy music, San Diego's Archons have been a scourge on the West Coast scene since 2003. Shortwave bursts of static crunch guitar slammed up against spiraling drums and ominous bass, this is black robe and pressure suit metal.

Power disk riders, mutant time-travelers and fans of rock-n-roll unite! Got your ticket? Get on board!
