Song of the Week: Arakain – Tisíckrát

It must be difficult to stay with your roots and sound modern at the same time when you’ve been making music for 32 years. One band that seems to achieve this effortlessly is Arakain, not hugely known outside their homeland of the Czech Republic although they’re recorded no fewer than 16 albums. They began as a heavy metal/thrash band in Prague. Their newest album, Adrenalinum, combines power metal and thrash in a set of songs which are overflowing with melody, great riffs, high-speed and creative drumming, as well as nice touches of modern metal. This should appeal to prog metal fans as well as the power, heavy and thrash lovers.

About ChristopherMammal

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.
