Power of Metal.dk Review

Aus Schwärzester Nacht
Style: Medieval Folk Metal
Release date: 22 March, 2013
Playing time: 72:25 (digi)

The fourth album by German folk rockers Nachtgeschrei. Vocalist Martin (ex-Mekong Delta) has replaced former singer Hoppi, but I don't hear a big difference in the singing style. Traditional folk music with the known instruments such as bag-pipes, flute and accordion combined with rock/metal. All lyrics are in German and if you don't like that, you can stop reading here. If there is a band you can compare them to, it is In Extremo. There is a difference though and that is especially on the vocal part. In Extremo uses more the metal kind of singing style, while Nachtgeschrei uses the more folkish kind of style, less aggressive.

If you already liked their earlier albums, you will have no problem at all with this new one. There is no big style change and again the songs listen away easily. With 14 tracks and even 16 on the digi-pack there are for sure some you'll like more than the other's. Not all the songs are that strong, But 10 out of 14 still makes it a good album. Several songs will create the perfect atmosphere at a live show and I'm sure that these seven musicians will have success in the German speaking countries and perhaps also in other's.
