    I finally picked up Arsis/United In Regret and all I can say is "WOW". These guys are amazing and to me sound similiar to Death but without ripping them off. Great progressive/tecnical/thrash/death/metal. This C.D. hasn't left my player since Friday. I wish i would have picked this up sooner. Comments welcome.

    you went too far calling them the next "death". death had strong roots in traditional metal. arsis is extremely modern, kinda like nevermore.

    great band.

    I thought that at first too but after a LONG time I've decided that United In Regret is better than A Celebration of Guilt. ACoG is just more accessible. United in Regret took a long time to grow on me. I mean I liked it at first don't get me wrong, but it's taken me almost a year to absorb/analyze everything about it to make my decision.

    the ep is the best thing they ever did, although their debut album is pretty good.

    I like United in Regret the most, probably because I heard it first. Anyway the tour with Exodus will kick ass.

    Their bass player had an interesting stage presence... playing over the neck half the time, shoving his face into the crowd, and generally seeming more active than the singer. On top of that, he looked frighteningly like Marty Friedman.

    Maybe I went to far calling them the next Death, But Arsis reminds me of Death quite a bit. I know Death has strong roots and have influenced alot of bands. Also, Chuck Shuldiner has a great legacy.
