Reviewed by Danny

This is the fourth album by the German death/thrash pioneers. Formed in 1995, this band has steadily grown up and after a quite successful demo, they signed at Nuclear Records kicking off a row of high quality releases.

This Necrodynamic comes just after Nailwork (their last album for Nuclear Blast), which was a mixture of thrash riffs and crushing death metal and the interplay of guttural and melodic vocals. This one follows the same path, but the band have added some hardcore vocals here and there, some blasting riffs and the overall sounds like the Swedish scene and is less death metal orientated. Some fast part reminds me The Haunted or Carnal Forge, but the performance is not that good.

At the end, I believe Night In Gales have put too many different elements in their music that I was asking myself if they are not lost alone between the death metal path and the new Scandinavian metal fashion (The Haunted, In Flames, Carnal Forge, Soilwork ....).

Not a bad record, but Nailwork was excellent compare to this Necrodynamic who is as empty of inspiration, empty of ideas, empty as their cover art can be. I am wondering if they have digested yet their transfer from one of the biggest metal label to Massacre Records.

As far as I know this band, this Necrodynamic is their worst record, but I am sure the next one will put them again in the right direction.
