Darkness - Defenders Of Justice (CD)
Release Date: 10/05/10
Defenders Of Justice is a fine representation of Darkness at their peak.
The music is made up of quite basic elements but the outcome is surprisingly fascinating. This is primarily due to the fair amount of variety and hooks included in songs, without sacrificing heaviness or speed in the process. Somehow this refined formula makes Darkness sound a lot better and effective than many other better-known German bands. Just take Battle To The Last or Locked as examples of tracks that initially appear pretty ordinary but eventually turn out to be quite fine pieces indeed. On this album Darkness delivered some extremely solid thrash metal that contains enough fine details to give the whole thing a boost well above the average level.
