Biography

Arizing had been diligently cultivating their sound in the wake of a drastic, much needed regrouping in 2004 leaving singer Matt Dalton pulling dual roles as frontman and guitarist, as well as seeing active Detroit area musician John Dion fill the additional guitar slot for the band.

This significant change translated itself not only physically in the appearance and conduct of the group, but also audibly in the form of a more enriched and energy laden batch of songs since the bands 2003 E.P. release, Advance, which was produced by Grant Mohrman (Celldweller, Jettared) and mastered by Tom Baker (Stone Temple Pilots, Marilyn Manson, Taproot). Arizing decided to adopt a 100% DIY approach with this newest release: a 3 song 2005 Sampler highlighting their current musical tableaux. Recorded, produced, and mastered exclusively by the band in their home studio of Mt. Clemens Michigan, these songs are punctuated with melody and motif, and in guitarist John Dions words, “are possibly the best quick fix for those wondering what to expect in Arizing’s near future.” With the absence of a producers ego and the constraints imposed by budget and time tables, Arizing was able to craft these songs in the most relentlessly personal fashion. From the pulsing rock anthem with electro tendencies, Terror, to the cathartic and melancholic chorus of Right Now (not to be confused with the 90s Van Halen Pepsi famed ballad), the 05 Sampler showcases the bands diversity, as well as transformation from its previous build. Influence from such poignant grunge/post-grunge rockers Failure and Smashing Pumpkins is a component of Arizings musical DNA, however they manage never to lose sight of pop-rock tendency a la Jimmy Eat World or Anberlin.
