Arthemis has been around the heavy metal scene since the late 90’s. Putting out numerous albums, playing killer live shows, and putting out some stellar heavy metal music. Now, they have decided to release the next chapter of their journey “Blood-Fury-Domination.”
This release is in a class of its own. Aside from “If I Fall,” which is a well constructed slower song, this album cranks up the adrenaline to 11. Every song has concise, clear, and powerful riffs. The vocals are crystal clear and fit the music perfectly. Songs like the released single “Undead” and “Into the Arena” keep you on your toes. At times, some of the riffs do sound a little too similar to the other songs, and it does have a slight vibe of some metal core elements. None of that takes away from anything this band has accomplished with this album. Arthemis definitely had an idea as to what they wanted to do here, and they executed it flawlessly.
If you have never heard of Arthemis, this album is perfect for you to get to know the band. The Italian four-piece is sure to continue to put out amazing music like this in the future. You can listen to this album for days and never grow tired of it. However, due to the high likelihood that you’ll get lost in the music and headbang yourself out of lane, I would not recommend listening while driving.
