Second full-length album by Swedish Melodic Death Metal /Death’n’Roll band.
Band of Johan `Liiva` Axelsson (Arch Enemy former vocalist) and another outstanding release with slightly better production then their debut.
The mix on this album sounds like any other professional Swedish offering: intense and just about perfect. Blending together Melodic Death and Thrash elements, "Armageddon, Mon Amour" is a magnificent journey through fury, power and substance. Unlike some other albums offered recently by Swedish Melodic Death Metal bands (or any group influenced by the style), every single track on this album is distinct and truly unique. The song-writing is excellent throughout and every musician in the band is truly skilled at what they do. The guitars have a Thrash/Power Metal edge to them as they strike dramatic melodies and harmonize in an In Flames-esque way, and the solos are impressive, indeed. The polished production and occasional understated electronic effects help bring the guitar lines forward and make them clear.
An excellent mix of King Diamond, Arch Enemy and Dismember! Fans of The Haunted, At the Gates, Edge of Sanity, Entombed and Carcass should also give "Armageddon, Mon Amour" a listen!!
