Editorial Reviews

It s been silent about the German pioneers of melodic Death Metal for far too long!

Flashback: After Night In Gales debut EP Sylphlike had hit the scene like a bomb in 1995 (up till now this release remains one of the best selling demos ever1), the first album Towards the Twilight was released in 1997 under the wings of Nuclear Blast Records and Night In Gales toured with bands such as of In Flames, Hypocrisy, Children of Bodom and Death, before releasing their second album Thunderbeast. Further touring with acts like Dismember or again Children of Bodom followed, as well as appearances as festivals like Wacken Open Air or Summer Breeze Open Air.

While the release this far presented the band with a clearly melo-death rocking groove, their third album Nailwork in 2000 showcased a rather morbid and more progressive side to things and Night In Gales not only toured Europe with Old Man s Child and Krisiun but also visited Japan together with DEFLESHED.

The new and fifth album Five Scars successfully combines all of the band s past trademarks within the typically Swedish melodic Death Metal sound structure, without rejecting new influences and thus making it both the most melodically accessible as well as also the most aggressive effort in the band s history so far, smoothly rounded off with a killer soundmix courtesy of scene icon Dan Swano.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great come back after a decade of silence! May 31, 2012
By AhSver
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Before getting into the music itself let me spill some historiography. This is a solid work produced by Dan Swanö himself, who is a pretty famous figure in Metal community and known for work with dozens of Great Names in the genre. The label of the record, Life Force Records, is known for great releases in many musical styles, liberal attitude towards musicians and good promotion. Another interesting piece of background information is that the band didn't release a full length album since Necrodynamic (2001), which sounded nothing like their early albums and the release I am reviewing today: "Five Scars." Necrodynamic was a rough Thrash metal with rock-n-roll tunes and got overshadowed by many other more interesting records perhaps for a good reason as the work didn't feel solid and original enough to catch attention of even die-hard fans of N.I.G. "Five Scars," however, pretty much has the best from the band gathering their essences gained over their long history and myriads of experiences in life.
By all means this is a Melodic Death Metal album, not Metalcore or Thrash with Death Metal influences. Fast picking, low-tuned guitars, occasional blast-bits, beautiful harmonies, rhythm changes and razorsharp (couldn't help myself) riffs all over. The music ranges from fast-paced to mid-tempo. Cellos are used on some compositions and they don't sound out of place at all, rather present an extension of the guitar melodies and the atmosphere/feel of the record, which is far from cheerful, not pessimistic but realistic and not theatrically exaggerated like many heavy metal albums out there. Philosophical lyrics have a lot to say as the band reflects on their own experiences and the world around them. Vocals are not as brutal as on "Towards The Twilight," which is understandable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even if I didn't February 21, 2014
Format:Audio CD
read the news beforehand that the band was calling it quits, there are telltales signs lyrically all over this thing that it was done with a very prominent sense of finality. As a swan song, it rivals the One Man Army & The Undead Quartet's "Dark Epic", but it also manages to neatly encapsulate a lot of the band's past while making some definite progressive strides. There is a sense of haunting and of the epic in the music here and though at times the production runs thin, especially on the guitars, taken as a whole, this is a very meaty slab that fans of the band have been awaiting for some time. While this will be a lot more meaningful to fans of the band, it is overall a strong enough album offering enough for any fan of melodic death metal to latch onto and greatly enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible CD! A must-own for any metal collection! April 30, 2014
By Brian
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great CD! Worth every penny! Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys metal! If you enjoy metal, you have to aggressively search to find the gems, as the radio plays the same old crap over and over, and while Sirius is much better, they hardly ever play most of the gems I've found by looking at metal label websites and metal magazine reviews online. Check-out some of the CDs that I have reviewed in my past, and I guarantee you will find something you may not have ever heard of! Stay metal and support our metal community! If you discover something you like on my past review list, click "yes" on where it says: "was this review helpful?"!
