AMEBIX — Arise! (review)

4/5 ·
Warthur
A foundational crust punk battlecry, Amebix's Arise! combines decidedly relevant concerns about the world's direction with raw, dirty punk rock fused with grimy speed metal and proto-thrash metal in the Venom/Motorhead tradition. The end result is a stirring, angry album and you can tell why acts like Darkthrone have taken to drawing on this neglected musical vein in recent years, because when you're listening to the Amebix crew ranting about the Earth's surface being reduced to a burned radioactive crust you know you are dealing with some powerful shit. More grounded than heavy metal, but more epic in its scope than punk, Amebix's crust punk vision is a potent one which is worth standing up for.
