Emergency Gate - Nightly Ray
Emergency Gate is totally unknown to me, and I was kind of forced to do this review. No problem though, that’s just the life of the reporter! Emergency Gate are based in Germany and is a relatively new band to the genre and “Nightly Ray” is their debut through a label. They started up playing in high school bands and later created Emergency Gate, totally focussing on own material. Well, let’s be honest, I read this kind of thing almost 4 times a week for 4 different bands. Let’s continue with the music, as the bio isn’t that interesting.
 
The music is described as ‘Modern Metal’, which to me is the same thing as whatever-you-want-to-call-it-metal/guitar music. Well, the songs aren’t that bad though and a lot references to Godsmack, with a very heavy German accent on the vocals. I had to laugh a little bit, because this really is unoriginal, although there is nothing wrong with their skills as musicians. I just can’t keep from laughing because of that accent, to be honest. The first song is called ‘Nightly Ray’ which makes it also the title track of the album. The next song ‘Kill The Dying’ (Kill Ze Diyenk) sounds nice actually, with fruity loops and breaks, still strongly referring to Godsmack with some nice synthesizer effects through it. To complete the album, of course you need a guitar solo, which is given on ‘In My Dreams’. It’s just that the solo is lame, as is quite the rest of the album, with many uninteresting filling songs.
 
I don’t want to offend these musicians, but this isn’t really the best new thing on earth. In fact, I will quickly try to get rid of this album to someone who can appreciate this kind of lame music. Even stoned, this band doesn’t meet the (very few) requirements of music in my personal opinion. Try to give this album as a present to your 89 old grandmother, who thinks Bach is metal.
