Guitarist Andrea Martongelli remains the only founding member of these Italian vets. 'Blood-Fury-Domination', the band's eight record, features a new bassist and drummer while still retaining Fabio Dessi on vocals (he joined in 2009). It's still punchy, rhythmic heavy metal that's modernized by the production and industrial elements. "Warcry" is one of the more furious tracks, double-bass and staccato riffs blazing, while others, like "Dark Fire" follows that formula with more epic chorus pieces and layered vocals. I'm not sure why more people don't talk about Arthemis. They deserve accolades for their consistent, high-achieving efforts.
