Guest review by

After the initial shock of finding out that Arch Enemy had recruited a female vocalist for last years ?Wages Of Sin?, I soon discovered that the band had created an album that was true to their original design, and easily made its way to one of the best for that year.

However, fears and speculation that guitarists Michael and Christopher Amott would fall short of the mark creating Arch Enemy's fifth album can be dismissed without a second thought the moment the introduction piece ?Tear Down The Walls? emanates from the speakers!

Rating: 7 'Anthems of Rebellion' seems to have the same major problem as 'Wages of Sin' for me personally. The first half of the album, running up to 'Exist to Exit' is some of the most creatively written material the band have ever produced. 'Silent wars' hits harder than a ton of bricks, 'We will rise' is a surprisingly good call to arms, and 'Dead eyes see no future' has the best melodic guitar licks ive heard of late. However, from 'disposable heroes' onwards, it just seems that the band got bored and lost a great deal of originality-and even though this is revived somewhat with the epic closer 'Saints and Sinners', i am now convinced that this album is slightly overrated.

Rating: 9 Definitely a step down after "Wages Of Sin", but certainly better than their lacklustre latest effort. "Saints And Sinners", "Leader Of The Rats", and the crushing "Exist To Exit" are certainly amongst the band's most neglected and underrated songs. In the light of more recent output from Arch Enemy, this one definitely has quite a bit to savour. Though it still wavers compared to their absolute best albums.

Listening to this last night, it finally dawned to me what knocks the albuim down a peg or two: it's the bloody drums.

1. They're too high up in the mix.

2. They're soulless clicky sounding things.

In essence they distract from some well crafted songs and riffs.

Shame. I find this to be a problem with a lot of modern metal.

Still better than the poor drum sound big brother had during his last couple CoF albums.
