Essential reissue action here from crust-punk pioneers Amebix. Their debut 'Arise!' came out in 1985, a year before the term was even coined, but its apocalyptic blend of snotty anarcho punk and sludgy metal riffs proved hugely influential to a whole generation of imitators. Now you can finally own a copy for less than £50.
8/10 gbar Customer review, 6th March 2017
An important inspiration on much more successful bands like Neurosis and Sepultura, Amebix's memorable Arise! album is still a work of art. The listener can be dared not to want to nod their head to songs like "Slave" and "Fear of God" or simmer in dirges like "Drink and Be Merry". Labelled more closely as a crust punk band than a metal band, the metal sound is definitely there and the heaviness was ahead of it's time. The less-than-polished performance and production give the album a very authentic sound, and this album is more than highly reccomended to fans of the early development of metal. The DIY ethos is all the more evident on such an album, which sounds somewhat like Venom's Welcome to Hell, albeit with a more developed style
