It shows musical progression but doesn’t stray too far from what listeners want from an Arch Enemy album.
The attraction is wholly down to the unlikely choices made by the band. The obvious covers draw you in, the unexpected ones keep you hooked.
Catchy melodies, huge riffs and those monumental grooves it’s no wonder Psychlona were picked up by Psycho Waxx
Krisiun were tired of the posers, so they brought it all back to square one with a brutal and more straight forward process.
When we speak about outstanding vocalists in Rock, one name that may not slip off people’s tongues is the talented English vocalist David Readman. His vastly underrated catalog would surprise any newcomer not familiar with his work. From his times in the underappreciated Pink Cream (PC69) band; which started in 1995 to his work with Voodoo Circle and even his versatility in the progressive metal project with Adagio. His body of work speaks for itself.
These guys have it all packaged into something you tend to expect from Escape Music, the melody, and the hooks, are all there. Chris is a tremendous vocalist who’s work we always try to publish as it usaully stands out and is of high quality; and the rest of the band with Mann on guitars bring it all together as Top Notch Melodic Rock.

Dr Strangelove’s opening line of “Don’t call it a comeback” and many of the lyrics making it clear this isn’t a cash-grab, but a labour of love.
This isn’t a push towards religion or suggesting that you need to find your faith, just simply an album from a band that, through the music they produce, help you find some light in the darkness and right now, that might be just what we need.
