Oops, it almost happened again. We just about overlooked Abyss, the latest album from Unleash the Archers. Already the pretty juicy Apex suffered some serious delay from the merciless hands of the RMR deck crew. Now this time we caught it, fortunately.

As you may know, we didn’t like it one iota once time stood still. Yet the aforementioned predecessor to this album gave us hope. The overblown theatrics and this multidimensional screaming ceased1), and in came some substance.

Of course, UtA is a Power Metal band and … [...] Click to raid more!

RockmusicRaider Review - Unleash The Archers - Apex - Album Cover

Should I tell you a dirty, truly geeky secret? I kinda got a kick out of the Mad Max themed video Unleash The Archers released with their 2015 screamo Time Stands Still. Even if I just could not really get warm with this particular record in general. The yodeling and aimless speed crimes were just too bad.

On their 3rd full-length album The Book of Heavy Metal that escaped into nature back in 2004. And they had the crunch it takes to produce some crystal clear and steely metal back then that – in all its somewhat cheesy splendor – will still please the fan crowd of today. 

Given their somewhat Dio-esque soaring style I always wondered if the band name [...] Click to raid more!

Talk about boundless energy. I am listening to the 2015 3rd studio album Time Stands Still of Unleash the Archers. And holy shit, these guys take off like a fucking rocket on steroids. Only this is one of those hate/love affairs all over again.

Something is rotten in this record that has received mostly positives to date. When frankly, it is not all infinitive bliss. Yeah, you heard that one right: It is technically flawless, but looking at it as the sum of all parts? Not so sure.
