5 stars NIGHT SUN was a one album band who released their only release in 1972. It's fairly heavy traditonal metal, with all the elements of BLACK SABBATH and LED ZEPPELIN. However, it's also noted for it's recognition to early doom metal and stoner rock, such as KYUSS and the other Palm Desert Scene bands in the 90's, in addition to QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE. This album was 20 years before it's time...and it works. It's slightly more melodic and less drone-like than some of the legendary bands it inspired, but it's possibly one of the most underrated albums in history. The guitar work is riveting, the drumming is exceptional, and the vocals all add to the stylized proto-metal this album is. This album is recommended for any fans of DEEP PURPLE, LED ZEPPELIN, BLACK SABBATH, and even such bands such as ELECTRIC WIZARD and KYUSS.
