Finland's Re-Armed have returned with a new recording that continues the melodic death metal and thrash mixtures of previous recordings and this is a review of their 2016 album "The Era Of Pracarity" which will be released on September 30th by Saarni Records.
Clean guitar playing starts off the album before going into a heavier yet melodic musical direction while also mixing in elements of thrash which also gets mixed in the screaming vocal approach as well along with some back up gang shouts also being used at times while t he solos and leads are done in a melodic death metal fashion.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the tremolo picking also adds in touch of black metal along with the vocals also getting more aggressive and some songs also bring in symphonic elements and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they also remain very true to a melodic direction and there is also a brief use of acoustic guitars and as the album progresses elements of groove metal can be heard while and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Re-Armed creates another recording that remains true to t he melodic death metal and thrash mixture of previous recordings, t he production sounds very professional while t he lyrics are a concept album based upon a dystopian world.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Re-Armed and if you are a fan of melodic death metal and thrash, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lullaby Of Obedience" "Ivory Towers" "Evolve Cycle" and "The Hunt Is On". 8 out of 10.
