TOP 5 EP'S OF 2012

Arsis - Lepers Caress



To me, Arsis has pretty much been in a backslide even so far back as 2006's "United In Regret," although each album has had varying degrees of success. 2010's "Starve For The Devil" might be my least favorite Arsis album, but with the "Lepers Caress" EP, it looks like the band is at least attempting to get back on track. "Veil Of Mourning Black" sounds like something that was left off their first album - tons of riffs, blastbeats and speed - but the songwriting is just hearkening back to when Arsis' songwriting was amazing. The day James Malone leaves Arsis is the day I stop listening to Arsis. Solid output, now let's see if they can transfer this music over to a full-length album!
