(Cult Of Parthenope)

Battle Helm Rating

I like Otep but I am not her greatest fan. I like Arch Enemy. I like Kittie to an extent. These are bands/artists that pop into my head as I hear this debut album from UK extreme metallists EIGHT LIVES DOWN. This is extreme with a groove. Modern metal if you like. I have said it before and will say it again; sometime I feel extremely old school in my metal tastes. It does pose certain difficulties in listening to stuff like this because my references are very narrow. So all I can go on is if I like what I hear or not. And as this album progresses the more I realize that it isn’t too bad. I even find myself banging my head to certain songs, like “Misguided”. This one turned out to be a nice surprise. Anders Ekdahl
