Label: Fastball Music Release Date: 06.03.2020
Haste makes waste. True! Nachtschatten haven’t released anything for a longer while. Their debut Album “Prolog” was released in 2015. Now the guys from Karlsruhe release their EP “Leuchtfeuer”, available since early March. The album seems to be inspired by Mad Max movies and also the lyrics follow a story but can also be listened to separately.
Music-wise the Germans underwent a good development, their songs are – except “Verdammnis” – not as chaotic as they used to be anymore. Vocal-wise singer Daniel Wengle has developed his skills. Now you can understand what he is singing and also the lyrics are of better quality than during the past years. Maybe also because this is a concept album, and it is a good work. Even if here and there the vocals could offer bit more variety, the band took care of details too. Those who like Melodic Death Metal with German vocals should definitely check out “Leuchtfeuer”.
