Arms to Oblivion : “Prisons” CD 4th march 2022 Self Released. UK Modern Alternative Rock / Thrash Metal band.
When a band calls themselves ‘Groovy band’, you must check them out to really understand what led them to use this sub-category. It’s obvious from the artwork on the cover, they want to be out of the box. Yet the first two tracks smell influences from Pantera‘s ‘vulgar .. ‘and ‘trendkill…’ albums. Great cover by the way with a face and the A kinda Anarchist..Many messages ..
The music magic is amazing as it can bring you back in time. From emotion to style, a special moment in life. Arms to Oblivion is into nineties tunes. LIstening to this Ep sends me back in the UK during live underground shows. While their influence has Thrash and Rock pieces, their composition is typical English.
That may sound crazy to you, but there is something that spills from their music I’ve heard reminding me that special touch. Very young band, they started to spread singles online like many do today to earn some fanbase. They already managed to play live shows and as the UK underground is still strong , it was easy for them to capture attention.
Check it out :
influences from Pantera, Honey For Christ, Black Label Society, Alice In Chains, Black Sabbath, Monster Magnet, Five Finger Death Punch, Slayer, Machine Head, The Exploited..
So it’s groovy, catchy, powerful, entertaining, and just nice to hear and play. The way they compose using those parts that get together pretty well, will for sure gain them lots of fans. You can expect albums to blast the Metal scene pretty quickly.
They might even kill the virus… So get this Ep and catch them live when possible. A band to follow and support without hesitation!
A must-have mostly if you love the nineties tunes 100/100.
