AllMusic Review by

New Zealand's champions of lo-fi noise rock the Dead C reach new levels of greatness in their very specific craft with Armed Courage, an album that comes after more than 30 years of burning sprawl from this incredibly locked-in unit of free-form sounds and collective rock improvisation. Split into just two side-long tracks, "Armed" and "Courage," the album rekindles the ethereal yet threatening elements of the band's best '90s material. Floating drums, wiry guitar, and eternally deteriorating electronic sounds meld into something holy and transcendent in a way not totally realized since earlier masterpieces like The White House and Harsh 70's Reality.
