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.

This is the reason why their newest album Apex from 2017 kept on sitting neatly in the review queue. Now, as we just waded into disaster with another unrelated record, we thought to just go ahead and create some additional anxiety. [...] Click to raid more!

Arch Enemy – Will To Power (2017) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Arch Enemy - Will To Power - Album Cover I confess. Sometimes I do look into the opinions other reviewers express. Not so much to gain specific word-by-word insight, but more to get a general drift of a record.

Usually the sum of all parts gives you a pretty good idea where an album resides. It is a bit like Trip Advisor, where you get the gist of things from the overall rating. But not from the detailed wording of endless badly written and subjective comments.

RockmusicRaider Review - Unleash The Archers - Time Stands Still - Album Cover

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.

Unleash The Archers perform a brand of Power and Speed Metal that is for sure [...] Click to raid more!
