4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not like the good ol' days 7 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The vast majority of people who like this album are Metal heads who, while not the greatest lovers of COC's work tend to find this album to be more to their liking. More dark and sinister then there previous albums yes it is a good album but ultimately for me as a COC fan I was disappointed.
Yeh, sad to say that when you think back to deliverence and wiseblood this Album just isn't even in the same ball park. I almost get the impression that after America's volume dealer got slated for being aimed at the "main stream market" COC released this to show that they are still true to their roots.
I personally feel they sold out to a market of metal heads who weren't happy with the direction COC was headed. But thats my personal belief, that aside these guys never release a bad album and it stills beats the socks off most music out there. An even 4 because even though I didn't love the album these guys are still my favourite band and I can't bring myself to give them a bad review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, emotive, class 18 April 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is my favourite metal album of the past year. The first 6 songs are almost faultless, the level of emotion coulped with real intensity is the bands strength. I dont think that CoC get as much coverage as they should. Almost ten years ago I brought wiseblood, (another great albeit safer record), and I still find it hard to believe that alot of hard rocking amigos haven't even heard of them. The musicianship is fluid and the songwriting unpredictable. It is definately an album that takes the best things from a number of genres to create something absolutely fresh.
For the music geeks out there, check out the crazy drumming on dirty hands empty pockets, apparently Stanton Moore is Jazz drummer. This brings the same kind dynamic to the group as brann dailor brings to Mastodon. Also spot the hotel california esque solo at the end of world on fire leading into a hanger 18 trill. It rocks basically.
The only predictable song on the album is war. Its a straight ahead hardcore mosher. You can bang your head to it but its not on the same level as the rest of the album. We need CoC to tour the uk so go buy this record then go see em.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Return To Form 10 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
It's good to see COC back in action, making a new album and touring, as they were one of my favourite acts from the 90's. With "In The Arms of God" the band return to form, combining the elements that made them such a great band in the first place - good song writing/melody, and of course lots and lots of bluesy riffs.

After leaving their hardcore/thrash/metal fusion beginnings behind, the band created a series of stunning metal releases. This was not a view held by all however, as the band lost fans, claiming they had `sold out' with the new old-school metal approach. For me, a fan of retro metal, especially in the stoner/doom styling, albums such as "Deliverance" and "Wiseblood" did the trick, and this new release is in a similar vein.

What distinguishes COC from all the other riff-heavy metal bands is their excellent song writing ability, combining great riffs with actual good structures and melodies. After the flowing start of "Stone Breaker" with its spacey intro and relatively straight-forward styling, the band really kick things off with "Paranoid Android", which combines everything I was previously talking about. The song starts with an infectious Pepper Keenan bluesy riff, albeit rather repetitive, but then the band really begin to show their colours, switching things up with numerous middle sections, all with varying riffs, melodies and tempos. Another example of the bands superb song writing comes in my personal favourite, the sprawling "Never Turns To More". This is possibly COC's best song to date, with rich vocal harmonies, infectious riffs and overall stellar musicianship from the whole band.

Don't expect Wiseblood, or the Southern Rock influence on the bands last album American Volume dealer. For this album COC have dusted down Black Sabbaths 'Sabotage' and 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath' and with that influence recorded a monstrous release that would have made Ozzy & Iommi proud.
The album starts off with a organ opening Sabbath Blues led number which crashes into a huge Iommi style riff, this sets the tone for the rest of the album. ITAOG Cruises along at a frenetic pace, helped by a couple of semi acoustic interludes with 'Rise River Rise' and a very scary & atmospheric sounding 'Crown of Thorns'. Personal highlights are the tracks 'World Of Fire', with it's stunning guitar work at the end of the track, bringing to mind Randy Rhodes 'Mr Crowley' style tapping. the ultra heavy 'Paranoid Opiod' and 'Infinate War' (another huge guitar riff) The best however is saved for last with the title track 'In The Arms Of God', this track is a bone fide classic, one of the best tracks the band have ever recorded, Huge drums (the new drummer is a star), huge guitar, huge vocals, Metallica should do well to listen to it before recording their next album. But don't take my word for it buy a copy of the album and hear it for your self.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Their Best Work
A real mix here of some great tracks and some really poor ones. Showing possibly a band in decline or maybe lacking a coherent direction.

GENIOUS. I really can't understand why there re so underground. A must for Metallica, Monster Magnet and a general rocking kinda' person with a little extra something kool.

My fav COC sound is Wiseblood, but this album comes a very close second. It's more diverse than WB and (given time) could well end up in the number one spot. Read more

Brutal, in my opinion their best album, lyrics are not as interesting as in some of their previous albums. However, this COCs best sounding album ever.
