Arch Enemy: Khaos Legions
3

Sound — 9
The album "Khaos Legions". Lets just start off with the first track is an instrumental, the guitar sounds fantastic, believe me I enjoy it. Later on in the song it has a nice sounding drum roll which goes perfect with the rest of the song. I would like to give props to another song titled "The Zoo", great song originally made and recorded by The Scorpions. When I first saw the track listing and I saw "The Zoo" I thought to myself, is it a cover or is it another song and it is just titled that. I listened to that song, it went over very well I was impressed, yes, they had some changes to the song but I simply love it, I actually love how they changed it, I find both simply fantastic. "Khaos Legions" is full of addictive melodic riffs, heart-stopping arrangements, and technical proficiency only produced by virtuoso musicians. "No Gods, No Masters" has some spiritual Beggars in it, and hearkens back to thrash metal in the 80's. I like the drumming in the song "Bloodstained Cross" that caught my attention the song. That is probably one of my favorites from this album. I also like "No Gods, No Masters" great quality in all instruments, props to Angela for the death growls I love it!

Angela has some great singing skills, I like the death growls in the song "No Gods, No Masters". The Intro song "Khaos Overture". The voice over the intro spoke to me, it felt good.

Overall Impression — 7
"Khaos Legions" for some reason reminds me so much of the album "Doomsday Machine". That is my favorite album by Arch Enemy, and I personally loved "Khaos Legions". I love this album because I like the heaviness of the songs and how low they tuned their guitars, Angela's Death Growls. The Fact that this album reminds me of "Doomsday Machine" that means I will love "Khaos Legions" and I do love this album allot.
