|Merciless Death - Evil In The Night (Heavy
Merciless Death plays straightforward thrash in the vain of Slayer and Exodus amongst others. Vocals remind me a little of ex-Exodus vocalist Steve Souza and a few yelling vocals are like Tom Araya screams. Most of the riffs are aggressive, pummeling, and speedy. They can really get your blood pumping. Also there are a number of ripping solos, though a few are a bit shaky.
Production isn’t bad, it goes with the old school sound. However, don’t expect anything crystal clear either. Besides that I wish the songs were a tad bit longer. Everything is around three minutes in length…eight songs almost twenty-six minutes in total.
“Evil In The Night” is a quality disc. Not groundbreaking, but it’s something old school thrash fans will enjoy. Hopefully this is just the beginning of a promising future for Merciless Death.
