NIGHT TO DIE
NIGHT TO DIE
Non Omnis Moriar
(Xtreem Music)
66:29min

When I first heard of NIGHT TO DIE in 1999 I read something about a combination of technical Death Metal and Spanish folk music. So I was quite curious to listen to their "All Evil Crying" MCD (Repulse Records) because I thought flamenco guitars would suit well to a Death Metal band. So I had to buy that MCD but unfortunately there weren’t that much flamenco guitars and it was mostly just complex Death Metal with a few “exotic” ingredients. Nonetheless "All Evil Crying" was a damned fine piece of sophisticated melodic, technical Death Metal. Somehow, and I really don’t know why, I did not listen to that MCD very often and totally forgot the band. They also didn’t release anything else until Xtreem Records put the band's entire work on this compilation CD including the "Who I'll Never Know" demo from 1995, the "At Fireland Depths" demo from 1997 and the aforementioned MCD from 1999. On all three releases NIGHT TO DIE presented some very well executed and complex arranged Death Metal which reminds me now and then of mighty DEATH without being a copycat. I think it’s rather astonishing that both demo releases are on that same high level like the MCD, already on their debut demo from 1995 the band really kicks ass. I’m usually not into Death Metal bands which add pianos or clean vocals to their sound but here it really works for me. There are also some oriental sounding vocals which I did not expect from a Spanish band but I guess these influences are remains of the time when the Moors ruled the Iberian peninsula. However, the oriental vocals fit perfectly to the music on the contrast to the clean vocals which are very lame in my humble opinion. Anyway, the main vocalist has a standard deep and powerful Death Metal voice which is not too spectacular but good enough. I wouldn’t say that “Non Omnis Moriar” is a must have but it’s a more than solid release. So check it out if you are interested in technical Death Metal with some exotic ingredients. www.facebook.com/pages/night-to-die/202804336460240, www.xtreemmusic.com
