Vancouver, BC’s ANARCHEON was formed in 2015 and 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. Demonstrating shemonic screams, catchy riffs and energetic heavy bass leads, the band has unleashed a three track demo and single “Super Nova”, which is will be followed by an EP in October 2017 and full length album for 2018.
Vocalist Kaija Kinney comments:
“The EP has many different types of lyrics but to summarize I would say its about coming clean and empowering yourself as a true genuine person with a lot of life struggles with depression. You will also hear the evolution of our sound mostly reflects on the different guitar players we’ve had with a slightly darker twist now with bass heavy Iron Maiden type leads.”

ANARCHEON has shared the stage with multiple bands from the Western Canadian metal scene and beyond such as Nervosa (Napalm Records), Mortillery (Napalm Records, Scythia, Van Halst, Dead Asylum and more.
