NightStalker - Dead Rock Commandos

Dead Rock Commandos
by Daniel Silva at 11 October 2012, 8:59 PM

NIGHTSTALKER is a band that comes from the land of Homer and Hesiod, of Odysseus and Achilles, of the twisted tale of Oedipus. They have been around since the late 80’s, early 90’s, and since their inception they have been labeled all kinds of things, Grunge,  Stoner  Rock… But these labels aren’t important, they play Rock N’ Roll and that is all that matters.

This album sounded a lot like a Rock N’ Roll version of BLACK SABBATH, they have that doomy-Sabbathian feel to them but done so in the “simplicity” known to Rock. The guitar playing is what most stood out for me, from the riffs to the solos, it is obvious that Motsios has ability, and more importantly, he has “feel” to his playing. The only thing that threw me off on this record was that the songs tend to sound repetitive since they are pretty much on the same mid-tempo range, and that is why it didn’t get a better rating.

This band would have fitted perfectly in the 60s / 70s alongside bands such as BLUE CHEER, early-RUSH, CREAM. Their songs scream of LSD-induced social revolution, Andy Warhol paintings and dirty hippies.
