Release Date: Tracklist. Album Rating: 3. This Message Edited On Honestly, I think this should've gone with the Wages of Sin review.
This isn't an album - it's just a disc of bonus material. Aside from that, not bad at all. I haven't listened to this, which is surprising considering I own Wages of Sin and their early days before Angela are much better than they'll ever do again. This was my 1st taste of Arch Enemy's old vocalist and he is pretty good. I think im gonna check out some of thier older stuff. I love Arch Enemy.
Other than that, good job. Arch Enemy Rare and Unreleased 3. Apparently it was also available with Stigmata. All songs on this were recorded prior to Angela Gossow joining the band, and feature Johan Liiva on vocals. I'll review this track by track because, since this is an odds n' sods collection, there's no point in trying to get across the "feel" of the album. A great song overall. The band are, instrumentally at least, quite faithful to the original, and although this is a very good cover, it pales in Touch Me - The Doors - 13 to Children Of Bodom's take on it.
Maybe AE just didn't put enough of their own touch to it, but either way, its still quite good. Again, having not heard the original, I can't comment on how true to it they stay, but I can safely guess that the vocals and drums are a tad harsher than Europe's version, and probably the other instruments too!
Seduce her, she'll use you Overall though, the guitar work is the only really amazing thing about this song, but even the solo can't save it, as it seems to me to be mindless widdling Starbreaker - Arch Enemy - A Collection Of Rare & Unreleased Songs From The Arch Enemy Vault mindless widdling mind you!
I've not heard the original version this disc is the only Liiva-era material I currently ownbut I must say, I love this song, especially the minor key main riff, and the melodic leads. The highlight of this disc, IMO. Amott isn't exactly praising of this song, or, in fact any part of it, slamming it as AE's worst recording!
It features a different drummer than usual Peter Wildoer. The song isn't unforgivably bad, but not up to the band's usual standards. However, just when you expect it to break into a massive riff or How You Like Me Now?
(feat. The Dap-King Horns) - The Heavy - How You like Me Now? EP break, it just stops. Johan's mouth distorts as he sings, which adds a nice, if weird, effect to the Starbreaker - Arch Enemy - A Collection Of Rare & Unreleased Songs From The Arch Enemy Vault . The song itself is great; Johan's vocals are strangely reminiscent of Peter Dolving The Haunted which is always a good thing, and there's plenty of brutal riffage followed by a huge solo section. Pretty good, by all accounts!
It's an interesting listen, if not always as brilliant as their other material. It seems some of these songs didn't make it onto albums with good reason although many appeared as bonus tracks on various worldwide releases. Rank: 0 for Matthew Reynolds Come Pouring.
