NWOBHM aficionados may well want to check out Night.

Not to be confused with the band Night from the late seventies that featured Manfred Mann's Earth Band's Chris Thompson, this Night, from Sweden, look and sound (dodgy moustaches and all) like they were cryogenically frozen back in 1981 when NWOBHM ruled the airwaves and have now been defrosted to unleash their self-titled debut effort on the world.

Night are making a valiant attempt here to recreate the output of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Saxon, Diamond Head et al, and while it's not a bad effort, it falls someway short of achieving the quality of the aforementioned acts. The likes of 'Gunpowder Treason', 'Running In The Night', 'Out Of The Ashes' (even though the latter's riff is blatantly 'borrowed' from Dare's 'We Don't Need A Reason'), and the frantic 'Into The Night' show potential musically, but it's the stratospherically high vocals of front-man Burning Fire that I have the biggest issue with.

Rob Halford makes the high-pitched screams appear effortless, but Fire's sound uncomfortably forced and on opener 'Fire And Steel', 'Stand Your Ground' and 'Taking You Down' they positively grate on the eardrums. That said, the rest of the band - guitarist Midnight Proppen, bassist Highway Filip and the excellently named drummer Linus Lightning (I thought it was just Glam bands that used pseudonyms these days) demonstrate considerable chops and prove that there is definite potential to be had.

NWOBHM aficionados may well want to check out Night, but for me personally the vocals are too much of an acquired taste.
