ARCITE “The Escape Key”

“The Escape Key”
Newcastle will in my world forever be linked to Neat Records, Raven and Venom and perhaps a handful more bands that I won’t mention here but the common denominator is that they are all bands of the past. I can’t really think of any newer bands that call Newcastle home. This is what I’d describe as thrash metal with a touch of metalcore. It might not be my first choice if I were to chose but once it starts to spin I have no problem listening to it. There is enough aggression in the music to get me to sit up and take notice. Listening to this is kinda like being beaten repeatedly by something blunt. You feel every punch like you feel every beat of the drums. Don’t know about this being the metal that will put Newcastle on the map again but they sure try their best. Anders Ekdahl
