Bloody-Disgusting.com has teamed up with ARBITRATOR to premiere their new lyric video ‘Stillborn Bastard of The Nazarene’, which is off the band’s upcoming debut album ‘Indoctrination of Sacrilege’ due out on February 13th.
“‘SBOTN’ was the last song written for the album and by far the strongest testament to the future of the Arbitrator sound. Upon its completion, I knew that writing for the album had to be concluded, as it brought about such a strong revelation of musical direction for me. It’s heavy, epic, catchy, and above all… unforgivably hateful. Jorgan Redick’s tastefully crafted lyric video brings the track nothing but justice.” comments band founder Robert Kukla.
You can check out the lyric video at the following link here.
The album is produced by Sacha Laskow (ex-Divinity, Every Hour Kills) plus mastered by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy) along with album artwork done by Colin Marks (Exodus, Scar Symmetry, Jeff Loomis). ARBITRATOR is a project that began in late 2010 as the brainchild of Robert Kukla and officially debut in 2011 with the release “The Consummate Ascendancy” with former drummer Corey Chernesky. The new arsenal of ARBITRATOR features Robert Kukla on rhythm guitar, bass and vocals with drummer Dirk Verbeuren (Soilwork, ex-Devin Townsend Project, ex-Aborted), Myles Malloy on lead guitar and Connor ORT Linning for programming.

“These well crafted songs have an infectious groove to them, these riffs are punishing, the drums are precise and effective, the vocals are raw and full of anger and the soaring keyboards life the songs to new heights; they give the album a grandiose feel, full of ominous presence.” – Devils Gate Media
“”The consummate ascendancy” is a fucken impressive first step and I wish the guy all the fucken best with his future endeavors. The talent is there, and obviously – so is the will.” – Global Domination
“…it quickly becomes clear that Arbitrator is more than just another death metal band. These guys are not afraid to put some experiments into their music and they still know via these two long, rather unusual songs how to make a decent impression.” – Lords of Metal
“Honestly, I’d love to hear more of this, so let’s hope Arbitrator can latch onto a label, fill out their line-up, and get working on a full-length follow-up to this very promising debut EP.” – Sea of Tranquility
