When Jon informed me that his label signed with a new Finnish Black metal project I thought to myself that once again fashion must leave a fingerprint on the point of choosing a band. Well, in this particular case, only half it is true. ARRIVAL is not a project of some debutants and their music sounds really fresh pleasant and full of energy with ARCTURUS shades! There is a mixture of Black and Dark Metal into a very melodious modern even avant-garde sketch, with a lot of keyboard and atmosphere. It seems like these musicians from FLAUROS and OBSESSIVE ART have finally proved their true value and thus these new pieces sound absolutely charming. The voice is unfortunately common extreme and screaming, perhaps too perplexing and less inspired yet perfect for some Black Metal fans' taste. It is curious that, although I am tired of common unimaginative Metal, this debut fascinated me from the first time I listened to, in spite of that almost already classical approach of modern Black Metal. It must be their first important step they actually did and, in time, I believe this indulgence of debut would disappear if the Finnish worked out a little at the concept issue as well as in the sound structure. In other words, it is about a great performance of a simplistic conception.
