Sonically The Darkness are Rock n’ Roll veterans with an affinity to writing well-crafted songs as their set was culled from the best songs of their four albums.
The extra material and the books make the super deluxe edition a must have for the real collector. The remastered tracks will appeal to fans who hold the original and want to hear what a modern spit and polish sounds like.
They flow nicely into each other creating a wholly integrated sound that reflects the spirit of the album. There are elements here that Culto and Fenriz would never have dared to try before, for example, the epic, almost power metally(!) choruses on Valkryie which beg to be sung along to. Another example might be the gritty Zakk Wylde type vocals that dominate the albums third track Lesser Men.
