Finnish metallers ARCHED FIRE have released their debut single, which ponders the powers of the algorithms.
“Remote-Controlled End” is the first video single of ARCHED FIRE, Finnish metal band working on their debut album to be released later this year. Musically, Arched Fire is where heavy metal meets speed metal—“hevispiidi”, as a Finnish radio dj called them a long time ago.

“We’ve only had this band for a couple of years, but there was a long break in between”, says Ari, their guitar player.
Formed in Finnish Lapland, Arched Fire played a bunch of gigs in 1989–1990, when the band members were still in school. Now, together with their new singer, the re-formed band has written and recorded an album’s worth on new songs based on the sketches and ideas from back in the day.
“We’ve made a metal record with old-school dynamics and present-day standards. When your teenage kicks meet your current musical skills, it is a lot of fun.”
“Remote-Controlled End” is the first single off their forthcoming album ‘Remote Control’. The theme of the songs is smart-phone addiction and the AI revolution, the power of algorithms over people.
