Norwegian dark metallers Arch Nemesis is back with their second album, three years after the release of their critically acclaimed debut "Shadows in the Mirror". The music performed by Arch Nemesis can be described as basic heavy metal with an overall dark sound. A really heavy sound with pounding guitars is the driving force behind the songs, but the music itself also offer variations in diverse forms of metal, including thrash and progressive. The second full length album from Arch Nemesis, of Mind and Fantasy, is a haunting, hard-charging juggernaut of a disk that displays the dynamic sounds of Medieval Metal with a flair for the unexpected. Face Front. 2006.
