is a re-release of the first two cd’s from Swedish band Nocturnal
CD 1 "In A Time Of Blood And Fire"
is how it all started for one
The rest of the cd aren’t the best, but I guess for a debut cd it’s all right. “In A Time Of Blood And Fire“ comes with 3 bonus tracks.
CD 2 "Tales Of Mystery And Imagination"
The second cd “Tales Of Mystery And Imagination“ was originally released in 1997 in Japan, and in the rest of the world in 1998 by Century Media. Nocturnal Rites progressed a lot with this release.
First of all there are no fillers on this cd, and the music is more melodic than on “In A Time Of Blood And Fire“. The tracks “Ring Of Steel“ & “Born In Hell“ are straight forward power metal. Some of the other tracks have a neo-classical touch. The production is great, and it comes with one bonus track and a video.
