So here is the new record by the much maligned Arkangel, so much so that until I got this i'd never actually heard their music, only the endless rumours and stories, which, based on this, is probably what really made thier name for them...

Musically I'm not sure how to describe it other than 'metal' which I suppose isn't really very helpful, say CT meets Gothenburg? I mean for a band that's been around I can sort of see where their influence falls, and for something that might be described as 'metalcore' it's massively superior to most things along those lines, but there is still a strange sort of clumsiness about it, and the samples they use are just flat out bizare but I'm not sure if they are meant to be or not, hmm.

If that sounds like the sort of thing you'd enjoy then you probably will, just don't read too much into the lyrics...
