✦✦✦✧ First off, I can’t in good conscience call this metal. That said, this is clearly one of the best metal albums of the year. The Armed are the closest group I can think of that truly treat the genre like it’s one equal color on their palette; they’re not metal-with-embellishments, and they’re not pop with high gain guitars. This album is so good, it’s making me wonder what I got wrong about their past two albums. Beyond that, I don’t want to say anything, other than you absolutely need to listen to this… then tell me what you think.
