Well, I suppose there should be some kind of Christmas link, what with the date and all. So here’s a nice tenuous one. Today’s band are from Finland, the most northern part of which is Lapland. Where Santa lives.
Good enough? Right, let’s crack on.
Re-Armed are from further south – a town called Kerava, just north of Helsinki. They’ve actually been on the go since 2001, gone through a few line-up changes but always been a 5-piece specialising in technical death metal with an edge of groove.
Their back catalogue consists of quite a few demos, but culminates in their debut album – 2012’s Worldwide Hypnotize. However, this collection is due to be added to on January 10th, 2014 when Rottendam is released.
The band have toured Europe in the past, opening for well-known acts such as Cattle Decapitation, Suffocation and Chimaira so there’s every possibility of seeing them on the open road in 2014, supporting this new release.
What music I’ve heard is fast, heavy and yet very easy to listen to. As ever, check out the links and sample below.
