Album Review

Depending on the metal band, a varying degree of melody can be detected — all the way from gloriously tuneful to absolutely tuneless. As it turns out, the Chico, CA-based quintet (the first metal band to ever hail from that area?) Armed for Apocalypse belongs to the latter category. But it's not a knock to the group, as their sound leans heavily on monstrously detuned guitar riffs and vocals that sounds like they're coming straight out of a torture chamber — as evidenced throughout their debut offering, 2009's Defeat.

Don't say you haven't been warned — these fierce gentlemen could take on Godzilla with their respective instruments.
