Arcania - Dreams Are Dead

Label : Great Dane Records | Archive under speed / thrash metal

Release type: Full-length CD

Berto : If I would want to take a short cut reviewing the latest effort from Arcania, I would refer to anyone review for a Darkane album and be done with it. The ten songs on this album actually sounds a bit too much like Darkane including the vocals. But luckily the French have added some other influences as well because the ten minute long 'Dreams Ends All Days' refers clearly to a song like 'Orion’ by Metallica with its build up and climax. On the whole Arcania add a lot more groove to the songs which make the songs all the more accessible. Being a french band they are obliged to pay homage to Gojira and so they do but not as obvious as the Darkane one. The execution of the songs is excellent, the technical thrash metal close to perfect and despite the all too obvious influences this is a really good album that is definitely a winner if you are into technical thrash metal like Darkane or Arsis.
