ARKDOWN are a 4 piece metal band from Sheffield, UK. Formed in late 2015, the band draws heavily on modern metalcore and deathcore influences framed by their own own melodic but heavy riff based style, earning them the title of ‘Steel City Riff Beasts’ by the press.

ARKDOWN have toured the length and breadth of the country, self-releasing their debut EP, Paths, and dropping a stand-alone single. The band have also supported a glut of established artists from Fit for an Autopsy and Oceans Ate Alaska to Kingdom of Giants and A Night in Texas. ARKDOWN’s latest release, The Calling, is a colossal step up for the band. Bursting with five cuts of heavily driven metalcore, hard-hitting drums, and layered melodic leads, all offset by aggressive and dynamic vocals.
"The Calling is a mind-blower, and easily ranks as one of the most massive, rip-roaring British metal EPs of the year" - Small Music Scene
ARKDOWN released their second standalone single 'Miasmic' at the start of 2020.
