THE ARSONIST - Formed in 2015, Chicago-based heavy metal outfit The Arsonist embraces a fusion of eclectic musical influences and tastes, along with a conceptual theme certain to satisfy even the most seasoned of film enthusiasts. The band's lyrical content focuses on a concept derived from the mind of vocalist, Erik Duarte, which involves an aging Hollywood stuntman in the '80s, and his road to ruin following the news of a terminal diagnosis. In essence, it's best described as a story about a man who, driven to extremes, seeks to find meaning and nobility in his efforts, even as the world collapses around him. The band's current lineup includes founding members, Christiam Palma (rhythm guitar), Carlos Rosas (lead guitar), Benjamin Duarte (drums) with the addition of Erik Duarte (vocals), and Aaron Jaramillo (bass).
