14 Sep Antarctic – Self-Titled Album Review
One of the best qualities of this record is the varied textures that Antarctic is able to produce with a very standard rock setup (drums, bass, and two guitars). Some of these tracks, like “Bergen” and “Intro”, are very melodic and would be comparable to bands like The Mercury Program and American Football (minus the vocals), while others like “Your Ships Are Googlin’ Pretty Hard” and “Arrowhead Wounds” would stand side-by-side with more metal-oriented acts like Russian Circles or By The End Of Tonight. All of this takes place in a mere thirty one minutes. While this record was released in late 2009, it still deserves this review, tons of other accolades, and platinum record sales. Basically, missing out on this would be a damn shame.
