After Dusk / Press

“If you look AFTER DUSK up, you’ll find them under the term of heavy/thrash metal, which is a pretty accurate description of their style. Still their sound is far more than that and they offer us plenty more with their fourth full length work, making this such a stunning release that many even well known bands would envy! If you are one of those who like the music they listen to have variety and a plurality of means used to fully express yourselves, then I think you’ve hit the jackpot with “The Devil Got His Soul”! You see it literally has everything and its compositions contain bits and pieces from the vast majority of the metal genres. So, you’ll listen here to heavy/thrash metal being mixed with some crossover and groove a la PANTERA elements, but then again in some other songs the guys make a turn towards more classic forms of expression and reveal their appreciation to the 80s heavy metal and the N.W.O.B.H.M. sound. However, if you think that’s it you’re in for a surp”

“– The older I get, the more I appreciate heavy metal... All of which brings me to Greek outfit ‘After Dusk’. Do you, like me, occasionally wonder what the Ozzy Osbourne band would sound like if they had any interest in producing quality music rather than listening to the cash registers chime?...After Dusk have more of a modern edge to them with their approach on classic heavy metal. Take the blistering ‘Bringer of Lies’, for instance. Yes, there is the burbling, Butler-esque take on the bass guitar, the plaintive guitar moments that recall the Blizzard of Ozz... After Dark are probably proof indeed that pure heavy metal can exist...to the claim to be among the forefront of the new wave of traditional heavy metal. I really can’t express in any less fawning terms how much I love this album; I have been blown away by how fresh, re-invigorating and exciting this is. ...Greek fire indeed.”

“Greece’s AFTER DUSK thankfully show a good profile in their third work, “Hybris”, and show the have the nerve to create some fuzz regarding their name. The variety in speeds and tempos is visible, the rhythm section seems confident and the guitars work – even if demanding – takes no prisoners... The keyboards may sound a little bit of a backing organ but some trained ears will probably confirm their crucial contribution to slower or more bizarre bridges and parts. “Hybris” is an album belonging to the ‘multiform’ category. If you have a wide range in music you’ll digest this CD and feel comfortable for your purchase, since the songs sound fine and – audition after audition – you’ll get familiar with the not-so-complex-in-the-end-of-the-day stuff AFTER DUSK presents. More data to be given is quite a peril.”
