From Dusk Till Dawn

Rated 3/5 (60%) (3 Votes)

Trappazat's From Dusk Till Dawn is another in a long line of albums released by High Roller Records that seeks to highlight all that was good about the NWOBHM. Trappazat existed just long enough to record these eight songs back in the late 80s and then called it quits. There isn't anything the lies outside the boundaries of what you might expect, given the NWOBHM appellation, but Trappazat do the style justice. The album has the "we've only got two days of studio time" sound, but the performances don't suffer. The vocals are the weakest spot but they aren't bad and actually suit the music as did so many of the eager young belters of the 80s. Twin guitars, after the fashion of Iron Maiden, abound, highlighted by some intricate work on "Prisoners" (which is not a Maiden cover.)

As stated at the beginning, there's nothing you haven't heard on From Dusk Till Dawn, but if you like 80s Heavy Metal, especially the sounds coming from the U.K., you'll want to check it out.
