Serenity

     
         
         
         
     
             
Archelaos are a melodic death metal band from Canada formed in 2011.    
             
Influenced by bands such as Chimera, Lamb Of God and Gojira, Archelaos hints at these bands throughout this album. Opening song 'Prosthetic Youth' is a very heavy song that pounds at you from the off, with its powerful growled vocals and brutal riffing.    
             
'Rise Again' ups the tempo and bludgeons the senses with some brutal drumming and crunching guitar riffs while the growled style vocals are very powerful. Title song 'Serenity' is full of heavy riffing and vocals that are so ferocious they almost spit venom.    
             
'Decimation Cell' is a slower but heavy as hell song with the deep growled vocals and a heavy rhythm so catchy that it automatically bangs your head and stomps your feet in unison.    
             
Awesome riffing and drumming adorn 'Hexxus', another slow, brutal song with powerful vocals. Ending the album is 'Blackshade/Farewell', a two minute instrumental.    
             
Overall, very heavy, very brutal, ferocious metal with powerful growled vocals and great riffs. Brutal metal at its best.
