ARTILLERY picture
Artillery is a Danish thrash metal band. They participated in the early development of the genre, and their highly energetic, riff-centric and often fast-paced music is similar in style to that of Slayer and Megadeth from the same era.

The band formed in 1982 in Taastrup, a suburb to Copenhagen. The members were guitarists Jørgen Sandau and Michael Stützer, bassist Morten Stützer, drummer Carsten Nielsen and singer Carsten Lohmann. The group recorded the demos Shellshock and Deeds of Darkness in 1984.

Artillery's first commercial debut came in early 1985 with the inclusion of the song "Hey Woman," on Volume One of the "Speed Metal Hell" compilation series which was released on New Renaissance Records. Later that year, Carsten Lohmann left and was replaced by Flemming Rönsdorf. Later the same year, Artillery recorded a third demo, Fear of Tomorrow, signed with Neat Records, and released their first album, also titled Fear

ARTILLERY Legions

Album · 2013 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Legions" is the 7th full-length studio album by Danish thrash metal veterans Artillery. The album was released through Metal Blade Records in November 2013. Quite a few things have happened since the release of "My Blood (2011)". First off Artillery have changed record label from Metal Mind Productions to Metal Blade Records. Secondly the lineup have seen a couple of significant changes as original drummer Carsten Nielsen has been replaced by Josua Madsen and lead vocalist Søren Adamsen has been replaced by Michael Bastholm Dahl.

It´s not the first time Artillery have changed lead vocalist or drummer for that matter, but both Carsten Nielsen and Søren Adamsen have been quite prolific since the reformation of Artillery, so it´s interesting to note how well their replacements take up the ball. Josua Madsen does a fine job on the drums while new lead vocalist Michael Bastholm Dahl puts his mark on the band´s sound right from the get go. His voice is a bit more unusual than Søren Adamsen´s ditto and his singing style is a bit less thrashy, but still suits the music well. I guess it´s just another testimony to the fact that it´s always been the intense and raw thrashy riffing by the Stützer brothers that have defined Artillery´s sound. They play riffs on this album (like they do on every other album release by the band), that´ll force you to headbang like a madman. That´s how great they are.

Besides the great thrashy tracks, Artillery also play a couple of power ballad type tracks and because of Michael Bastholm Dahl´s vocal style they touch US power metal territory on those tracks. Michael Bastholm Dahl is actually the most "singing" type vocalist the band have yet worked with and I guess those who enjoy more thrash metal sounding staccato vocals will take a bit of time getting used to his singing style although it´s not miles away from his two predecessors. "Legions" is upon conclusion another solid release by Artillery and thrash metal fans with an interest in US power metal should definitely give this one a try. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

Wardrum heartbeat...

Genre: thrash metal

Since their comeback in the form of "When Death Comes", Artillery were on a roll, delivering first class thrash metal. A key factor seemed to be the voice of the new vocalist Søren Adamsen and his aggressive, but melodic, approach to thrash metal lyrics. So when Søren Adamsen AND drummer and founding member Carsten Nielsen left the band in 2012, some people were naturally concerned that their departures would have a negative impact on the future of Artillery. Their replacements were vocalist Michael Bastholm and drummer Josua Madsen and their full-length debut as Artillery members was 2013s "Legions".

I do not want to belittle the efforts of the members they replaced. Søren Adamsen's aggressive voice suited the aggressive style of Artillery very well and added a dose of energy to the overall picture. Likewise, Carsten Nielsen's punky drumming style was a source of raw aggression. But, the two new members do a phenomenal job. Josua Madsen's drumming is more refined and has more attention to detail but retains the aggressive edge, and Michael Bastholm's soearing and powerful vocals blend nively in with the Artillery sound and add a slightly epic dimension.

Musically, "Legions" continue were "My Blood" left off, and thus comes as a natural extension of "When Death Comes" as well. "Legions" explore further the epic feel of the predecessor - and this is where Michael Bastholm's voice fits in so perfectly. The Eastern influence that has characterized Artillery's music since "By Inheritance" is still present, as are the bands old school thrash metal roots. In other wordsm this album is as Artillery as it gets, which is really a testimony to the Stützer brothers' talent for consistent songwriting.

The opening track 'Chill My Bones (Burn My Flesh)' starts out with a tribal-cum-Eastern-come-epic intro, before it morphs into a solid midtempo thrasher that rivals the likes of Exodus and Xentrix. The soaring chorus is both awe-inspiring and appropriately bone-chilling. The title track is rich in Eastern scales and thrashy aggression as well as technical finesse and nicely placed tempo changes. 'Wardrum Heartbeat' is characterized by the same blend of aggression and technical sophistication and features some solid midtempo passages. Vocals-wise, Bastholm delivers some pretty impressive vocal melodies, and I also like how the band experiments with the riot choir effect. 'Global Flatline' is a heavy and melancholic affair, and the aggressive 'Ethos of Wrath' has a slight power-thrash feel to it. Indeed, it is difficult to pick stand-out tracks from this album because they are all so strong.

"Legions" is very well produced, and the songwriting is strong. The musicianshp is top notch across the board. I am particularly impressed with the new vocalist. His soaring vocals and impressive vocal melodies really add a new dimension to Artillery's sound that takes it to another level of awesomeness. I like how the musical aspect of the album is undeniably Artillery, and how it can be complemented by a new vocalist. As mentioned, I do not want to belittle the work of Søren Adamsen (nor that of Flemming Rönsdorf), but it is undeniable that Artillery have really found an incredible vocalist in Bastholm.

In all, this album is definitely up there with "When Death Comes", "My Blood", and "By Inheritance" - I dare say that it is perhaps their best album since "By Inheritance", and that's really something, because "When Death Comes" and "My Blood" are extremely good thrash metal albums. "Legions" is, for my money, an instant thrash metal classic and easily rivals bands like Anthrax, Heathen, Flotsam & Jetsam and other thrash metal bands who also combine aggression with melody. "Legions" offers high quality thrash metal. Period.

Combining a technically proficient thrash metal musical foundation with vocal delivery and a few riffs harking back to the golden age of the NWOBHM, it's mildly surprising to me that Artillery's By Inheritance doesn't have a higher profile, since it seems to me like an album with appeal for both thrash fans and followers of earlier metal styles. With Flemming Rønsdorf's vocals drawing on the styles of the likes of Bruce Dickinson, Michael Kiske, and perhaps a dab of Rob Halford, and the brothers Stützer providing a twin lead guitar approach reminiscent of Judas Priest and Iron Maiden whilst cooking up riffs worthy of Megadeth and Metallica, there's plenty for all metal fans to love here.

"My Blood" is the 6th full-length studio album by Danish thrash metal act Artillery. The album was released through Metal Mind Productions in March 2011. it´s the second album with vocalist Søren Adamsen and the second album since the band´s comeback album "When Death Comes (2009)".

The album opens with the middle eastern tinged "Mi Sangre (The Blood Song)", which is structurally a pretty complex track lasting 7:33 minutes. It´s definitely one of the standout tracks on the album but there are plenty to pick from. The music style is the usual thrash metal meets melodic heavy/power metal that the band have practiced from day one maybe with a bit more emphasis on the melodic part these days compared to the early releases by the band. We´re talking killer thrashy riffing, powerful but also melodic singing, well thought out songs and a suiting powerful sound production. These Danish veterans know exactly how to write effectful and memorable material and at the same time deliver it with passion and conviction.

"My Blood" is of course a must for fans of the band and in particular fans of the last album, but more casual fans of melodic thrash metal should find lots to like here too. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

Artillery's third studio album is a new direction from what they had been playing previously, thanks mainly to the very prominent power metal nods during these songs.

I bought this album not having heard anything by Artillery at the time, or knowing anything about them, I saw Gene Hoglan was doing the drumming duties here, and that sealed the deal. I am much pleased by having got this album as it really isn't like much anything else out there. It has all the trademarks of a good thrash album, but with Helloween style power metal being infused with the thrash. This combination makes for an incredibly melodic and epic sounding (at times) thrash album. The vocals by Flemming Rønsdorf are also not as raw sounding as most thrash band out there.

All the songs are good and have top notch muscianship, with some standouts for me being the great intro song Tashkent, which has some Indian/ Raga-ish influence. The song Khomaniac is the best example of Artillery's fusion of power metal and thrash with great some really great passages (and guitar solo). Another standout for me is Back In The Trash, which is more thrashy than Khomaniac, but is in no way a let down, and shows that Artillery know how to thrash like the big four. I also have to comment on the the song Razamanaz which could have been tailor-made for thrash, with vocals that fight perfectly with the thrash sound. A very good cover by Artillery.

This album should by heard by any metalhead. You really won't be dissapointed.

One foot in the grave, the other in the thrash...

Genre: thrash metal

This video captures Artillery's concert in Spodek, Katowice, in Poland on March 8th in 2008, and that in itself is something I really appreciated. In 'ye olden days', the venue of a show that was released on video or DVD would have to be some big legendary arena like Wembley or a place like that. But this DVD show that metal is really a global phenomenon and that concerts at internationally relatively obscure place like Spodek, Katowice, in Poland can be just as intense and magnificent as those that are held in big arenas.

The concert itself is great, and the production is sufficiently unpolished, and it's great to see a bunch of middle-aged and greying and mostly balding guys (ignoring Nico, of course) going on stage and kicking ass in an all out thrash metal frontal attack. Fans will surely appreciat eclassics like "Deeds of Darkness", "By Inheritance", "Khomaniac" and "Terror Squad".

So, the concert is what it is: an intense frontal thrash metal attack, and a show I wish I could have attended, but the real treasure on this album, which is what makes me give it five stars, are the interviews with the Stützer brothers and original drummer "Carsten Nielsen" in which they go through interesting events in the history of the band, such as split-ups, working with Flemming Rasmussen, drinking with Slayer, getting kicked out of Russia, recording with Invocator's and The Haunted's Per M. Jensen, the creation of side project missing link, problems with Neat Records and Venom, and, of course, the inception of the band and their choice of band moniker.

I'd recommend this DVD to fans of the band, but also fans of thrash metal in general, because there are certain to enjoy all of this DVD.
