Classic second album from a really great underrated band. They supported Killing Joke on the last tour hence Jaz Coleman (Killing Jokes Lead singer) adding to vocals here on a superb track called 'High Octane Climate Changer'. This is a much darker and menacing album then their debut a few years back (still worth checking that out though) with the band moving in a far better direction, what direction that is is hard to pinpoint ? And that's what i like, this band does not fall into any music category. I suppose if you like bands like Killing Joke or Ministry your in the right kind of musical bracket here. Back to the album....Its not many times you get an album where EVERY track is a killer, well this album happens to be one of them, its full on with mouth wrenching vocals (don't know if i would really call it singing!) with some mighty hectic rock n roll riffs from all band members & mixed with great thrashing bass lines and sounding like a bass should sound, dirty (early Stranglers is the last time i heard a bass played like this!!). And the guitaring as far as im concerned has come to town now for this band and its really added the icing on the cake here (so many sweet little riffs here to enjoy). And not forgetting the new drummer as well, who sounds like he's played to die for this album (its fast, very very fast!). This is all packed with great honest lyrics that actually matter, this band has something to say about the world (with the track Religion standing out a mile), this album contains the kind of lyrics you used to hear many many years back from bands say like The Subhuman's (UK) or the Dead Kennedy's (well that's how i used to remember it anyway!). This is the kind of band that we really miss nowadays in this plastic kiddies Kerrang age. No pretty boys or girls here, this is the real deal. BUY IT , you will not be disappointed.

A sustained, evangelical tirade against the evils of the world, 'Holy Armour...' combines dark and muscular post-punk menace with the precise violence of extreme metal to create an exhilarating blast of white knuckle noise and righteous indignation. British rock hasn't sounded this furious or this potent in decades.

A RAGING ASSAULT OF POST APOCALYPSE SONIC HEAVINESS.
October File finally release their long awaited and in some quarters highly anticipated second album.
A raging assault on the senses from start to finish (with Jaz Coleman from Killing Joke adding his dulcet tones)
Musically, October File deliver an even heavier and direct approach than the highly rated last EP. Dark, aggressive angular and downright angry are the closest descriptions.
This is a monster of an album and they have delivered a stunner....on tour with Prong soon I hear....
