Night On Brocken
Fates Warning is a band most older metalheads will
have at least some knowledge of, and younger ones,
like me, also should know about this band for they are
a great 80’s band, and “Night On Brocken” is there
Old school metal fans will immediately be happy with
this album, but fans of progressive oriented Metal,
what the band became after this album, should probably
here it before they buy it. Being a fan of old school
ripping Metal, makes me love this album. Duel guitar
attacks are present on this album, which adds a lot to
certain bands sound. John Arch uses a forced vibrato
vocal style similar to Bruce Dickenson uses, which for
this album, is perfect. Drumming is good, but this
album isn’t very drum oriented.
Picking a best track is hard with this album is hard,
they are all classics, however in an effort not to be
boring I will say that “Kiss Of Death” has a classic
pure Metal riff.
Any metalhead worth the skin stuck to their bones will
own this classic, so stop reading this review and go
buy it DAMMIT!
