Good review man.

I heard a bit of this last weekend and wasn't particularly impressed, so I probably won't be checking
it out properly.

If the first track and the first few off the EP don't do anything for you then yeah I wouldn't bother.

The single version of Slow is one of my least favourite parts of the album but the vocals are pretty typical

You Keep Me Here is such an amazing album closer gah.

They're sound blokes too, supported them with my old band a while back.

Following raw mini-album 'Left Fire', progressive Brits Arcane Roots return with debut LP 'Blood & Chemistry'. Polishing up their alt-rock/post-hardcore sound, the trio lose none of their raucousness, nor any of their tempo-switching dynamics. Andrew Groves' versatile vocals continue to improve, while some atmosphere is added musically to make this a real grower. Their ambition does get the better of them, with many tunes containing too many ideas & 58 minutes being overlong, but if Arcane Roots can hone their pop sensibilities, then they could equal the success of Biffy Clyro & Muse one day! Recommended Tracks: Belief, Triptych, You Keep Me Here & Sacred Shapes.

This is definitely less immediate than the EP. Doesn't help that the highlights aren't quite as good as those off Left Fire
