Deadnight - Messenger Of Death

Imagine your in the late 1980's. Imagine you just heard Slayer's Reign in Blood for the first time. Then imagine Slayer did an album without Tom Araya and got a new vocals that growls. Welcome to Deadnight. Throughout this whole album I couldn't get it out of my mind that I was listening to Slayer. After getting through the entire album, I promtply listened to it again and asked myself "Where the hell did these guys come from?!" and "Why haven't I heard them before". Well, they came from Chicago, Illinois and the reason you and I hadn't heard of them is because this is their debut album. But if it's any indication of what's to come, I won't be the only one begging for more. Not only are there strong hints of Slayer in the album, but also Pleasure to Kill era Kreator sounds familiar. Deadnight sets a new standard for aggressiveness, and brings plenty of new material to an already well explored genre. Why aren't there more bands like this? Oh yeah, and did I mention the return of glorious solos? I did not see this coming, and didn't want the album to end. Spread this band around like the plague and buy this cd.
