ARTS: Vault of Heaven: 12”

Nov 02, 2010

Arts play raw, thrashy hardcore with black metal-tinged drums and growly vocals that remind me more of Thou than anything else. The analog recording is raw as all hell, but everything is balanced and easy to distinguish, and the grit lends merit to the heaviness in their sound. The whole album flows well as a full piece and sounds more like two long songs than a collection of a bunch of short songs. The artwork and packaging are completely over the top and awesome.
