Review

Near Dark is the 2nd full length album Dance With The Dead has to offer.

'Invader' starts off with synth that slowly builds almost like its invading your ears and then breaks out into a catchy electronic beat with some electric guitar to shortly follow laced within.

'Dressed To Kill' has a 80's nostalgia like horror film chase scene feeling to it with racing electronica to get one up and running on their feet. 

'Waves' is a cool track that features all 3 genres Dance With The Dead dips their feet into without hesitation. Although 'Waves' is more synth dominate than most others on this album, there is a electronic beat that sets the foundation nicely while the electric guitar echos here and there. All about variety!

'Midnight Never Ends' showcases the more heavy metal side of the band. The guitar wails out just right over the synth and acts as the icing to the cake to top off this electronic founded recipe.

'Andromeda' begins with a really cool thunderstorm effect that leads into a dark electronic dance floor beat. In my opinion it has the darkest of vibes. 

'Eye Of The Storm' has a very cinematic feel to it and is without a doubt my favorite off this album. This would be a perfect piece I think to use in a movie when the main character is on a long soul searching quest. You can just picture the emotions of a nomad like person on the move in search of their dreams.

'Near Dark' had me picturing club kids on Halloween just dancing the night away. It has a darker element in a sense for sure. It captures the spirit of the night life.

'The Pitt' and 'Graveyard Shift' are okay but I couldn't get into them.

'Riser' had me feeling like I was lost in a catacomb trying to find my way out. Tomb Raider as silly as that may sound is what came to my mind. 

Overall I thought Near Dark was a really good effort by the band.

Did you know that?

A friend once said "What a Motley looking Crew" - Motley meaning "of great variety" and once describing the appearance of a court jester. The re-spelling of Motley Crue was their own invention; and said to have came to them while they were partying & drinking Lowenbrau beer.
