Night Terrain is a new heavy metal band from Albuquerque, NM and they recently released their debut album “American Dream.” The musical trio combine heavy metal riffs with a progressive sound to create some great instrumentals.
The ten-song album utilized the talents of the musicians such that no vocals are needed. The outdoor crackling fire starts the album off as the band introduces themselves with “Dyssonic.” Their sound is sharp and to the point, without any vocals getting in the way. They use movie sound clips to help with the meaning of songs like “Dusk” and “American Dream.” They show-off their metal side on the heavy bass and drums of “Beyond Walls” and the thrash metal guitar riff of “Wild Again.” The album closes with “Distant Echoes” that contains very little vocals, as the slow build-up of the song takes off as the band just jams away.
Their self-released album, “American Dream” is available through nightterrain.com.
