Into the Sunless Meridian - _Into the Sunless Meridian_
(Near Dark, 1999)
by: Alex Cantwell (0.5 out of 10)
I thought that I would be in store for some great, artsy European metal with a name like Into the Sunless Meridian, but I was disappointed to find that it is but a solo project of some guy named Mikael from New York. Drat. Mikael conjures up a weak attempt to bring back the glory days of thrash, with severe leanings towards a Mercyful Fate sound (he even does a cover of "A Corpse Without Soul" and throws horrible King Diamond vocal renditions into several other songs). The material on this release was recorded from 1994 to 1997, so there is no real consistency or good musical flow, and in most parts the guitar sound leaves a lot to be desired. In summary, this is a demo in disguise that someone at Near Dark, while suffering from temporary insanity, decided to press onto disc.
