For a man with a gift for simple yet spellbinding melodies Steve Goldberg has chosen a background cast with elaborate guises including Mink Shoals and the Duke. Thankfully the subterfuge ends with the nicks and the Arch Enemies let the music they were born to make flow instinctively. The glorious results are all too apparent on ‘Summer’s Ending’ which is the closing track from the bands sophomore eponymous album. The instrumentation is lush and swoonsome and augment vocals that on their own could have descended into twee noodling (not that I’d be complaining). ‘Summer’s Ending’ has the gorgeous technicolor of a Ryan McPhun (who curiously also has an elaborate army behind him called the Ruby Suns) track and proves conclusively that you should keep your enemies close but your arch enemies even closer.
