Pantera (USA) - I Am The Night (1985)

Artist : Pantera
Country : USA
Release : I Am The Night
Year : 1985
Genre : Heavy Metal
File Type : mp3 320


Just about every metal fan knows the name Pantera. The Texas-based band was a huge metal presence in the `90s. In a decade when metal's popularity was in decline, the heavy, thrashing Pantera became almost a household name. What's less well-known is that the band had been active since the early `80s, recording a series of albums in the glam/hair metal style before releasing their 1990 breakthrough Cowboys From Hell.
Originally released in 1985, I Am the Night was the band's third album. It's still by and large a hair metal album, but you can hear the band moving into thrashier territory. In particular, the guitar riffs are noticeably faster and the rhythms are heavier. The band still sounds a lot like Britny Fox here, thanks in large part to Terry Glaze's raspy vocals and the songwriting style, which tends to focus on rock anthems and yes the occasional sappy ballad. It's a hair metal album with some killer guitar work, but a hair metal album nonetheless. Standout tracks are the rocking "I Am the Night," "Onward We Rock" and the very metal "Valhalla." Like all the early Pantera albums, I Am the Night has some very cheesy, very amateur cover artwork.
