Night In Gales - Towards The Twilight (Remastered + Bonus Tracks) (CD)
Release Date: 09/30/08
Re-release of the debut album from 1997 feat. a prime amount of melodic death metal, with a slight NWOBHM influence.
Back in the mid 90's, the Gothenburg school of metal clearly dominated the scene, spawning dozens of bands influenced by the Swedish style. Night In Gales emerged right in the middle of the movement and it soon became clear that this young group was a breath of fresh air among other In Flames-wannabes. The German five-piece quickly proved that melodic death metal could be played outside Sweden with the very same power and intensity. Now, with the exclusive re-release of 'Towards the Twilight' Night In Gales return in all their glory to once again prove their worth on the melodic death metal scene. Night In Gales' first album was released at the beginning of 1997. 'Towards the Twilight' delivered a prime amount of melodic death metal, with a slight NWOBHM influence. Compared to the likes of At The Gates, early In Flames and Slaughter of the Soul, the album paid unquestionable homage to the Swedish school of metal, in the same time introducing a handful of original ideas. Although the album was only 37 minutes long, it perfectly managed to capture the violent nature of death metal and confront it with delicate acoustic guitar sounds found throughout the album. 'Towards the Twilight' also stood out because of the extremely poetic lyrics, clearly influenced by the works of Lord Byron. With their debut offering, Night In Gales jumped right into the top of German melodic death metal bands, sweeping away the competition. New digipak edition incl. 6 bonus tracks taken from the 'Sylphlike' EP and is limited to numerated 2000 copies. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on golden disc
