Run wild in the streets. Attack, assess, adjust, and reattack as we prepare for another LOUD NIGHT. Alerting all ears to the hell we hear, as all the world's eyes stare at the Mindnumbing Pleasure they fear.
This debut LP swells with the strength of the street and swiftly penetrates corroded ancient engines with slick lubricating down beat hardcore punk metal madness.
This mean-machine belt-feeds you 13 bursts of roaring black motor magic that only runs hot and never shuts off.
Our take: Debut full-length from this band out of Richmond, Virginia. The core of their sound is somewhere between Midnight’s Venom-influenced punk-metal and Inepsy’s d-beat rock-and-roll, though with flourishes from other styles across punk and metal’s wide spectrum. I think I reach for the Midnight and Inepsy comparisons because every track on Mindnumbing Pleasure is so ripping and catchy, maintaining a high energy level that makes it feel like a punk record. But while the vibe is punk, Loud Night incorporates metal’s musicality with no self-indulgent tendencies, particularly for the (frequently harmonized) guitar leads, which are tasteful and melodic. This record’s entire pressing sold out from the label in just a couple days, and for good reason; if you’re in to this style of punky metal / metallic punk, this is a flawlessly executed, front-to-back ripper.
