This band has just been getting better and better. Starting out as a somewhat generic black metal band, Borknagar has on their last three albums really meshed not only symphonic elements, but also much more "classic" styles, with use of different styles of choirs, song structures, even a Hammond! But more importantly, they have simultaneously held on to their Scandinavian character. True North tries to deceive you with its typical "black" cover and logo, but this band is one ... read more

Immigrance is another extremely well sounding, grooving and pleasant album to listen to. It is not overproduced either, and knows how to spice it up and keep things fresh.

If you ask me, Demigod is where Behemoth's streak of consistently excellently written, excellently produced albums started. It's more brutal and rough around the edges than, say, The Satanist, but it's a brilliant effort nonetheless.

It's almost a tribute album...

Velvet 4 Sale (3:44) - Kate Bush
Rage of Plastics (4:27) - Pink Floyd
M.A.H. (2:54) - ABBA
Rosebud (3:09) - Björk
Incidental Boogie (3:23) - Goldfrapp
L-Over (4:05) - Lana Del Rey
Pearly Gates (4:02) - Alicia Keys
Poem (3:30) - Chvrches
Time (7:48) - La Roux

...but so good!!! It's a grower!

Yup, that's my review.

Don't pay too much attention to the low scores. They are most likely from those expecting a grindcore record, and finding a groove-heavy sludge record. The thing, however, is that Agoraphobic Nosebleed has an excellent ear and feel for heavy music in all senses of the term. Arc has none of the pace of AN's earlier work, but all of the disgusting riffs, tormenting vocals and relentless energy. Just in a different form.
