Staff review by
Baz Anderson
Nuclear Blast, one of the biggest labels in metal around right now, and this is the year that the label started in Donzdorf, Germany all that time ago turns twenty. Celebrating this milestone in metal history we have two "all-star" albums featuring the singers of many of the Nuclear Blast bands. "Into The Light" released the first half of the year showcased the more melodic side to the label with appearances from singers from bands such as Sonata Arctica, Blind Guardian, Helloween and Nightwish - however "Out Of The Dark" is the yin to the yang. This album features the more extreme acts of the Nuclear Blast label, revolving more around the melodic death metal genre. Here we have singers from such bands as In Flames, Wintersun, Soilwork and Kataklysm putting their vocal talents to the music written and performed almost exclusively by Peter Wichers.
