Arc'Tan'Gent is the last, and greatest, album of Earthtone 9's short-lived career.
The dynamics the band display are incredible. They are capable of shifting from emotional beauty to calculated math rock or from sweeping melodies to brutal hardcore, and it all sounds like a natural progression - never contrived.
The music is often very dense and draws up bleak, perplexing soundscapes. Elsewhere, the haunting melodies and almost tribal drumming create a dream-like atmosphere.
The album seems to become more and more intense, the further in you get. It truly draws you in - once it grabs you, it won't let go. Opener, 'Tat Twam Asi', is the stand out track, as it constantly changes and evolves, building up to a fantastic chorus. From there the album never settles. The following two tracks are not only catchy, but brilliantly crafted and complex slices of melodic metal. 'Approx. Purified', on the other hand, is sheer metalcore might. It then goes on to the softest track on the album: 'Walking Day' is quietly understated progressive rock. 'Star Damage for Beginners' is simply intense, again built around a superb chorus. 'Ni9e - This is the Sound...' is a short instumental track before the dark, murky 'Yellow Fever', which features Liberty 37 frontman Ishmael Lewis on vocals. 'Alpha Hi' is a much more straight forward rocking track and the album finishes with the epic closer, 'Binary 101'.
The band's talent is simply unique. From the inventive riffs, through Karl Middleton's original vocals to the imaginative drumming of Simon Hutchby (which I believe to be almost as good as that of Tool's Danny Carey).
If you aren't persauded yet, you should be. This is one of the greatest metal albums of all time. Those people who say Britain lacks any great bands: idiots.

This album truly is a work of genius. The third record from the Nottingham boys received great praise from rock journals and brought the band to a new level. Often being compared to acts such as Tool, Deftones and Anathema, Earthtone 9 blend melodic riffs and harmonies with brutal agressive hardcore. The album opens with "Tat Twam Asi", a journy of epic guitars and pwerful vocals. We then travel into some works of brilliance including "Star Damage For Beginners" and "Yellow Fever" (featuring Ishmael Lewis of Liberty 37 on vocals) As the album progresses, so does the intensity of melody and Si Hutchby's vital percussion shines throughout.
If your looking for a new direction in music and you apreciate epic sounds as evolution this is the record for you. This is my personal favourite album of all time and I never grow bored of hearing it.

Firstly, take a look at the last few people's reviews. They saw e9 at Disturbed, and were more impressed by the supports. That's because they blew them off the stage - they did not have easy to digest 3 minute rock screams, they had building songs, varying melodies and an abstractness that went further then most nu-metal bands.
Arctangent is a great album. Very Tool-infused but with a greater sense of simple rock aggression (Karl Middleton can roar on one line and sing in perfect harmony the next). The songs that combine these stand out - p.r.d chaos and star damage (for beginners) - but to truely understand e9 check out binary101 or tat twam asi, which combine eerie, almost tribal, rythms with a dreamy, other-wordly melody.
Imagine Tool being re-mixed by Fear Factory to get a small glimpse. Buy it

I find it really sad that this band are ignored by the masses, when they are easily the best UK band around and are far superior to any hyped up 'big in America' bands. Opening with the masterpiece 'tat twan asi', which is a archetype E9 classic, combining some of the heaviest aggressive riffs with a massive chorus, this album gets off to a good start. The good news is that the band never runs out of steam and they keep up this standard for the whole album. This is quite a challenging album and it may take a little getting into for those who have been brought up on tame, formulaic MTV crap, but it's very rewarding and definitely one to stick with. If you like bands like Sepultura, Machine Head, Tool, Vision of Disorder, Earth Crisis, Deftones and Will Haven then I can guarantee you will love this album. Also check out their other two albums because they are just as good.

This is quite possibly the best British underground hardcore album. There is more musical talent involved in the writing of the songs on this one cd than in the whole pop music scene.
If you have never heard of them then I would suggest you do.
Its just a pitty they are no longer together but that seems to be a trend in a dying scene.(rip)
