Artch - For the Sake of Mankind CD

$12.00

History books have heralded Norway as the black metal movement’s most fertile breeding ground, but the country’s heavy metal scene isn’t exclusively about corpse paint and Helvete. One of the finest and most underrated groups to come out of the land of 10,000 lakes is undoubtedly ARTCH. Formed in 1983, the power metal outfit released two demos before hooking up with Eric Hawk, a killer vocalist from Iceland.

With Hawk on board, ARTCH would eventually sign with Metal Blade Records and release Another Return, their debut full-length. Arriving in stores in 1988, the album garnered rave reviews from the heavy metal media of the day. Kerrang! blessed the record with a perfect 5-K rating, while Metal Forces deemed it an instant classic, giving it 100 points, the magazine’s top score.

1991 saw ARTCH unleash their sophomore album, For the Sake of Mankind. The record was packed with anthemic tracks such as “When Angels Cry” and “Titanic,” and it also finds the band also introducing more hard rock elements into their sound. As great as For the Sake of Mankind is, it failed to bring them commercial success, eventually leading to ARTCH’s breakup in the early ‘90s. FOR FANS OF: IRON MAIDEN, DIO, MALICE, FLOTSAM & JETSAM, METAL CHURCH
