Valpurgis Night

A modern band reliving the classic 80's indie metal scene? England's Valpurgis Night aren't the first and won't be the last to go this route, and while they may or may not be the best at it, they certainly are far from the worst. Bands like this rely more on nostalgia than innovation, and that's not necessarily a bad thing, as these guys have the chops and enough songwriting skills to keep things interesting. This is dark, traditional 80's metal, almost semi-doom in tempo and style at times, with a good amount of bite on songs like "Death Collector" and the almost Candlemass-ish "Valpurgis Night". Manilla Road is a band that, while not a direct soundalike, comes to mind at times while listening to these guys. Good stuff.
