5 stars Another well attempted effort by Algerian/French extreme metal band Arkan. Following the path chosen on their previous abum, they once more give us their perfect blend of extreme metal and ethnic North African (Algerian) music. Due to the many character changes, their music keeps you exited right from the start. By assimilating North African music in a true way in their music they have really added a new dimension to extreme metal. Again the grunts are alternated with Arabian sung melodies and once more the playing of the oud (Arabian lute) is perfect. This time Sarah Layssac, already present on the previous album as a guest, has entered the band as a member and supplies us with well-sung female vocals. A touch of viruoso flamenco guitar (which ofcourse is in its origins North African) concludes (before the "hidden" bonus track another fantastic Arkan album. This is a band to check out !!!
