Prog Reviewer
4 stars Night Sun take a proto-metal template derived mainly from Deep Purple - complete with a prominent role for Knut Rossler's electric organ - and turns it up to 11, creating faster and more furious pieces than anything attempted by Deep Purple at this point in time. Mukti- instrumentalist Rossler is the star player here, incorporating trumpet and bassoon into the band's sound in order to up the musical complexity and diversity, and manages to do so without compromising heaviness. Metal would eventually turn away from the electric organ as a a heavy rock instrument, but this is a great reminder of the time when heavy groups' instrumentation was not quite so limited, as well as a suggestion of the sonic possibilities were groups to become a bit more broad-minded today.
Warthur | 4/5 |
