Every Shirt XCVI: Archaeon

Free Image Hosting at

shirt: Archaeon
size: XL (US)
vintage: 2008
provenance: band

Acquired at the tour kickoff show at which I also got the TYAG shirt seen earlier, this is, considering that I consistently passed up getting Vanitas from retail, the sole piece of evidence I have of this band, who didn't quite have it together when I saw them that one time, but managed to do decently despite this. This is a rare thing in tech-death bands, which, as the comments at the time indicated, the band might have gone on to make some noise if they'd been able to keep their lineup together, but such are the stories of local bands, especially as young as these guys were: good music is not quite as rare as the luck and the circumstances that allow a band to stay together and get that music out.
