Why haven't I listened to these guys before? Been spinning Curse and Chapters pretty constantly since last night. I love the guys voice, it's very "strange", it took me a while to get in to his sound though, just me?

Great Occult/Counter-Religious Classic Metal, as well it should be, pretty sure these guys were a thing in the 80's but just didn't do anything.

Anyway, here are some standout tracks for me:

They recorded some of the best NWOBHM in the 80s. While the new vocalist is good in his own right, no one can replace Dave Halliday. This sounds so lifeless compared to this:

There is a reason they haven't even attempted to re-record this:

Also the production on the new albums is far too sterile for this band. I wish Andy Sneap hadn't had anything to do with the reincarnation of Hell.
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.


Among the churchyard’s mouldering stones I recognise a name – my own.
I have come home to Arkham.

I'm yet to listen to the new one. I find they are one of the best live bands going the twice I've seen them, but I rarely seem in the mood for them on record.

New one isn't grabbing me like the last LP, but I'll have to give it a proper listen soon. But yeah, go see them live if you can! I hear they have exploding bibles and everything now, one of the few bands that can get away with such cheese.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

I can totally see what you mean. The old stuff sounds pretty cool too.

I have to say Living Dead is probably my least favourite song on the album.
