This two-for-one set combines the second and third albums released by Swedish metal band Armageddonwhose guitar-wielding leader, Christopher Amottsubsequently decided to retire the project in order to focus on the increasingly successful group he shared with his older brother Mike -- Arch Enemy. Nevertheless, with the possible exception of their first album, rightfully ignored here, Armageddon were a more than respectable Embrace The Mystery - Armageddon - Embrace The Mystery & Three in their own right, and their sophomore outing, Embrace the Mysteryin particular, boasted a compelling mix of timeless metal anthems and surprisingly accessible hard rock tunes, powered by the interplay between Amott 's guitar heroics and excellent lead singer Rickard Bengtsson.
Following the latter's departure, the band's sound became more predictably metallic on their obviously named final offering, Three -- where Amott' s voice also evoked a few too many memories of John Sykes' Blue Murder and, at times, even Zakk Wylde' s Black Label Society -- but its songs were still quite memorable, for the most part, if slightly more derivative.
