Arsis - Unwelcome (2013)
After a run of rather mediocre, overly straightforward melodeath albums, Arsis have finally returned to their original style which mixed technicality and melody so well. It's a very aggressive, very heavy album with bass drums flying all over the place and cool riffs throughout. It's mostly a pretty catchy album though it does tend to sound samey and by-the-numbers in some parts. However, it's still nowhere near the levels sunk to by the new Hypocrisy and Sodom albums which truly bored me and left me utterly disappointed (sorry to fans of those albums). So, overall it's a pretty good listen and I suspect it's a grower.
