NIGHT CONQUERS DAY (USA/Ny): “Rebellion is the Art of Survival” Cd 1999 Hammerheart

NIGHT CONQUERS DAY (USA/Ny):

73 minutes. I clenched my teeth in anticipation when I saw all of the songs in the CD were over 10 minutes long. Thing which might have meant either that NIGHT CONQUERS DAY are completely good or completely, utterly boring right? Actually I just wish there were no vocals as they succed in spoiling the cobwebs of atmosphere that manage do grow after this crepuscular music. Even though the backbone is something indeed interesting, there’s something evocative, some distant echoes of rain and medieval magic in the music, which also denotes a picky, precise and constant study in their arrangements. Actually after 15 minutes the music starts to get pretty uniform in shape and you either feel frozen between the chords of get hopelessly bored. Not tragic music but I admit I still don’t have a clear idea on what to say after 2 listens, except that sometimes they create the same chilling mood MERCIFUL FATE were able to craft 20 years ago, yet something different. Not canonical for sure, good music in its own genre.
