The album opens with the first of two impressive instrumentals (I'm not usually a fan of instrumentals, but these are well done) and moves swiftly onto Taking Back My Soul, a catchy, powerful track. Next is Nemesis - my favourite on the album, a long intro builds up for the wonderful chorus - "One for all - all for one/We are strong - We are one" this song (about revolution) would stand out if the others weren't so good.
Other highlights include Carry the Cross and Mechanic God Creation.
Rarely has a metal album been so melodic and yet so brutal at the same time.
When an album flows well, you instantly know it. This album does exactly that. It took me a couple of listens to properly distinguish between everything that was going on (there's a lot of it) but soon I was hooked.
The combination of a very rare female "growler" with Michael Amott on guitar is outstanding. If anything Angela Gossow's vocals are a lot clearer than a man doing the same, probably due to the difference in pitch.
All in all, if you like your metal and want something with classic riffs, great musicians and a shedload of anti-establishment anger, buy this.
I was not dissappointed! this is just a sensational album from start to finish, and makes huge progress from Wages of Sin and is the much more good looking and brutal younger brother. With tracks like nemesis, out for blood and carry the cross i havent stopped listening to this album 2 weeks on...i just cant say enough good things about this album. Its my release of the year.
Fans of anything shouty should give this a look, and for all Chimaira, God-Forbid and Trivium fans this is an essentail buy!
Arch Enemy said just that upon finishing this album. I should point out that if your a fan its great and should still be classed as some of the best of this type of music about.
The big build verse chorus parts have been turned down a bit and the 'thrash until you have thrashed a bit too much and then thrash a little more' parts have also been eased down in all the album is more sensible but less fun (fun is prehapes not the best word to descride AE but you get the idea) than previous work.
If you know no AE get 'Anthems of Rebellion' a consistantly better album I feel.
