Five Highly Recommended albums of 2007 that didn't quite make the top ten:
Holy Armour from the Jaws of God
A very unusual band for Candlelight to sign - they are nothing related to black metal, for a start - but this is an interesting band nonetheless. Difficult to describe what they sound like without mentioning the name Killing Joke, as they really do sound like them (and to make the connection even clearer, Jaz Coleman appears on one of the tracks), but the whole album is infused with an anger about the world around them: including an unusually strong environmental and political sensability.
Key tracks: High Octane Climate Changer, Hallowed By Thy Army, Religion?
Orchestra of Wolves
