An album that is screaming out to be cranked up to eleven.

For Fireworks #75 I have reviewed a number of great albums by up-and-coming British bands; it is extremely satisfying that this genre of Rock and Metal (in whatever connotation you prefer) that we all love is still producing home-grown quality bands that bodes well for the future, while still maintaining its integrity – and it's only right, we invented this style of music! One such band is Primitai.

Undoubtedly at the heavier end of the scale of what we cover in Fireworks, yet still warranting inclusion thanks to the strong melodies that pervade throughout, 'Night Brings Insanity' is album number four from the Berkshire-based quintet. Since 2013's 'Rise Again' release, their line-up has altered; new bassist Scott Miller and drummer Jonathan Warren coming in to join the nucleus of vocalist Guy Miller and guitarists Sergio Giron and Sjrdan Bilic.

Though undoubtedly standing confidently with one foot each in the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal and Classic Heavy Metal camps, there are numerous modern elements and dexterous arrangements scattered throughout to prevent Primitai being a mere Retro act. Of course, Iron Maiden influences can be discovered in the twin guitar melodies but that's certainly no bad thing, however, when the enormously talented pairing of Giron and Bilic let rip with many of their searing, paint-stripping yet melodic solos they demonstrate an individuality that's completely refreshing.

Fist-pumping, adrenaline-fuelled Metallic Anthems are the order of the day; opener 'Black Rider' takes off in the double-time, frantic pace that you expect from a Metal album, but slows down somewhat with just the occasional burst of speed (mostly during the awesome guitar solo), so it's down to second track 'Savage Skies' to romp off in the raging, more conventional Power Metal direction. Elsewhere, 'My Last Escape' and 'Power Surge' revolve around tricky arrangements but benefit from catchy choruses, 'Night Hunter' is a pulsating, hard 'n' heavy Rocker that will be a real treat during a live set, while the epic-sounding 'Conclusion Forgone' is the perfect example of a Power Metal ballad, and probably the album's crowning glory.

Assisted by an immense, pounding production, 'Night Brings Insanity' is an album that is screaming out to be cranked up to eleven!
