The third installment pulls rare cuts and private pressings into one compilation. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 25, High Drama by Opposite Sex. Delightfully mean-spirited post-punk from New Zealand group Opposite Sex is as weird as it is raw. Japanese composer Syusaku Deguchi builds unexpectedly hooky experimental ambient from glistening electronic samples and field recordings.
Breezy bossa jazz from Laure Briard recorded with Brazilian psych-rock band Boogarins. Night Demon plays oldschool heavy metal They are one of those bands that sounds like a tribute band that started writing original material for the hell of it.
The thing is, while nothing jumps out as being particularly horrible on this record, nothing jumps out as being particularly exciting either. It's total traditional metal by numbers. It sounds like Maiden, Diamond Head, Saxon, you know Everything sounds competent enough. The riffs go from slower passages to mid paced rockers and faster galloping numbers. The bass and the drums are doing what they're supposed to do.
The singer does a pretty basic mid-range thing with some instances of backing vocals popping up strategically. It's the same thing they did on their first album, only this time it's really boring. I'm honestly not sure why the first record sounded better to me. Maybe it was the amateur vibe that gave it a certain sense of legitimacy? I really have no idea.

Sentinel Daily , July 25, As stated, the guitar play on every single track is brilliantly executed while the entire album goes above and beyond any expectation. Basically, there are quite a few tracks that seem to be reminiscent of a classical hit, but they are crafted, manipulated, and reworked in such a way that the music is seemingly ahead of its time. It serves as a nice change of pace to the more speed-driven style of Night Demon. There are also some new age Jimi Hendrix type guitar riffs happening throughout Darkness Remains.
