Never one to shy away from hyperbole, Revolver Magazine was quick to bestow upon Arsis' impressive debut release, A Celebration of Guilt, the rather celebratory (and in my opinion, somewhat misguided) honor of "best [album] in the genre since At The Gates' legendary swan song ['Slaughter of The Soul']." YOURE DOING IT TOO HARD
third post.......this album brings the meh
holy f*ck. this reviewer talks like some Frasier Crane-wannabe gay. Except that he IS an actual gay, not just a wannabe.
invoking a sort of triumphant affirmation of the dynamic potential of melody... Christ
one of the best melodic death records in a long time.
hes usin too many big words heh. wut a gayet
You do realize they have a second guitar player who wrote several of the tracks and solos, right? Good job on that.
Great album, very impressive review, i like this guy
yea, good leaving out the fact that ryan knight writing and soloing on this album had anything to do with its awesomeness. dumbass
Agree with most of the review, this album is a HUGE step from United in Regret, which I didn't like at all. Deserves a 8.
Drums sounded way too tight. Didn't like the change there. Too much neo-classical wankery. Doesn't sound like the old Arsis at all. It's better than United in Regret, but doesn't touch the first album.
i was expecting to be disappointed but i actually love this album
The drummer is such a chode. He's so skilled, but the snares really are awful, and he totally ruins a few good riffs by trying too hard. Way too f*cking hard. Like serveants to the night. Listen to the bullshit he does during the iron maiden riff.
If you say you like metal and you don't enjoy this album then you're a f*cking moron.
So if A Celebration of Guilt wasn't the best of the genre since Slaughter of the Soul who is the reviewer awarding that to?
Celebration of Guilt was hilarious. This album is simply average, nothing special, without the buzz surrounding the band would have received a 5.
an actual solid review all around for once... this album did not dissapoint.
It's amazing. A Lambgoat review that isn't full of complete bullshit ass-hat-ery. Good album. Long winded but good review.
I enjoyed these songs way too much on first listen. That usually means I'm going to hate this in the medium to long term. Hopefully not, though. Better than UIR but not ACOG or ADFD
too bad these guys are a pack of f*cking gays.
i heard this singer sucks dck. like for real
shit band not givinva crap about shit bands like this nu-metal kiddoes GROW UP
great band. great album. ive had this album for about 6 months now. the internet is great. 8 of 10. great guitar work. catchy but not mainstream.
