Vates Noctes Compilation Vol. I
(Supreme Chaos Records)
73:35min

If I am honest, I personally would never buy any compilation-CD again which is compiled by a magazine and where it is obvious that there is no real concept or something behind it. This compilation is, as the name already suggests, organized by the guys from the Vates Noctes-fanzine and what makes this one a bit different is that all earnings from the CD go the cancer aid, but this is, if at all, the only reason why someone might be interested in buying it. 16 bands are included on this compilation – and as always, their quality varies, although the sound-quality after all is never below average. But then there is the first point: Why do bands (in this case: ORDEN OGAN) put a live-track on a compilation? BANISHED REALITY, GOAT OF MENDES, DISSOCIATION (although I don’t know why bands are proud about having enough money to put a song on the Legacy-compilation – that’s all those compilations are about), THORNESBREED and BERSERK INC. are probably the better bands on this compilation, while GODMODE (please get a vocalist!), ASCENSION and RAVAGE were really poor. As an addition to those 16 bands (ranging from Death Metal to Thrash(?) Rock), you’ll find a multimedia booklet on the CD as well which although quite basic offers you all the information (biographies etc.) you need about the participating bands and the idea behind the CD. Might be interesting for all those who like to get an overview but then there are couple of compilations. I doubt that the selling point of a strictly limited edition of 1000 copies will make this being sold faster. www.nocte-obducta.de, www.s-c-r.de
