ARGUS (usa) "From Fields Of Fire" D-LP
As expected from a band of Argus’s calibre, the musicianship on From Fields of Fire is stellar. The songs were composed with the perfect balance of memorable guitar harmonies and catchy vocal lines in mind and the surging rhythm section helps make these songs among their most energetic to date.
Overall, Argus’s fourth full-length album isn’t too dramatically different from what they’ve done before but offers noteworthy tweaks and excellent songs to go with them. There are faster songs and the lyrics seem more melancholic than usual, but there’s nothing that will alienate established fans of the band. It may be one of the strongest traditional metal albums of 2017 and heavy/doom/power metal fans who’ve yet to check them out are especially advised to give this a listen.
