Digital Doomzday
Armageddon Legends
June 2011
Released: 2011, Indie
Rating: 2.0/5
Reviewer: JP

This was given to me a ex-friend of mine. I say ex-friend because after giving me this disc he is off my Christmas list! What was he thinking? Was this some sort of a cruel joke? A prank? In all seriousness I think he gave it me because (I hope) he thinks that I will give it an honest list and a fair assessment. To be honest I don’t think he liked it very much either. Well, I did give Digital Doomsday a fair shake and here is the breakdown.

ARMAGEDDON LEGEND is the bands debut album, or long EP. Whatever it is, it’s 33 minutes long and has 8 tracks, so let’s call it an album. It is a collaboration between Roman Corkey (The Roman Empire) and Rob Doherty (ex- Into Eternity) and Dan Nargang (Kick Axe, ex-Into Eternity). It also features Flo from Cryptopsy on drums. Sounds promising right? It’s neat little Canadian thing with a triplet of known heavy-hitters. You’d think it has potential…but no.

Why? Well, for one the rap vocals. That just kills it right there. I’m not ashamed to admit I’m not open-mined about something especially rap in Metal. It just doesn’t work. The songs are pretty boring one-dimensional Nu-metal churns with Death vocals at times but mostly this silly, annoying rap thing. There are lots of industrial elements that drag the whole thing down as well.

I will say this. It does have a few positives. The lyrics are decent and laced with humour, I got a chuckle out of ‘Monsters In The Airlock’ and a few others. The production is pretty good. When Rob solos it’s his typical high quality. Anything Flo does (drumming-wise) is spot-on. These are all good features but collectively they still can’t save crappy, industrial, nu-Metal with rap vocals.

If you are open-minded and really tolerant and have a sense of humour I might recommend ARMAGGEDDON LEGENDS. If you like Fear Factory, SYL, electric-fried Skinlab, older Stuck Mojo, or the rap stuff that Anthrax has flirted with, you might like this. Approach with caution.
