Dead Of Night – self-titled 7″
The first thing to grab your attention with the debut EP from this American punk outfit is the cool sleeve artwork; then secondly, the deep, dark murkiness of the sound quality. It’s like it was recorded in some cavernous underworld – and I like it. Your ears have to work that bit harder for the rewards. And also, it gives them an atmospheric feeling of dark, apocalyptic doom, perfect for this style of Amebix grind. Apparantly, Dead Of Night have been active since 2004, with members based in Florida, New York and Massachusetts, with time spent also playing in: Aggression Pact, Waste Management, Boston Strangler, Step Forward, Prisoner Abuse, No Sir I Won’t, Peacebreakers, Libyans, and more.
