Into the Night

Rated 4.08/5 (81.54%) (13 Votes)

Leathürbitch is a relatively new band from Portland, Oregon that checks a lot of the boxes a band going for an '80s hard rock/metal vibe should. They've got the leather and studs stage wear, an umlaut over a letter in the band's name that umlauts aren't supposed to go over and a debut album on High Roller Records that sounds like it was found in a time capsule. The songwriting on Into the Night centers around the kind of simple, direct riffs and misogynistic lyrics the hard rock/metal in the US back in the '80s was lousy with. The performances are sort of average with the exception of the vocalist. Someone get this guy a couple of singing lessons. He's got a decent tone and some charisma but is flatter than Kansas, which I know isn't the flattest state, but you get my drift. His off-key delivery renders otherwise serviceable tracks like "Killing the Silence" nearly unlistenable. There are things to like about Into the Night, particularly the energy and devotion to an early heavy music sound, which reminds me a lot of Def Leppard's On Through the Night album. If the singer can stay in tune on future releases, Leathürbitch might be a band to watch, but they aren't there yet.
