ARCEYE “At First Light”

“At First Light”
(Hostile Media)
ARCEYE came as a surprise to me. An English death/thrash metal band. Perhaps not that uncommon when you think about it but I haven’t really paid too much attention to the British scene in the last couple of years. There have been more exciting scenes to keep track of. But hearing this I realized that not all that comes from the isles are trendy bullshit. Some is really cool metal. Like ARCEYE. That it is hard to be really original is something that all band struggles with and it really doesn’t matter that much. What matters is if they write good songs. And I gotta hand it to the band because they’ve managed to write some cool songs on this album. There is a melodic sense to this that keeps it from ending up one in a million. I gotta keep a closer ear to the UK underground scene. Anders Ekdahl
