Rite of Rebellion

Rated 3.67/5 (73.33%) (3 Votes)

The cover art may look like something drawn in study hall, but don’t let that put you off; this short little demo puts boot to ass very quickly indeed. Moros Nyx hail from Chicago, and they are all about old school speed metal with a traditional bent, sounding at times like Thundersteel-era Riot jamming on early Helloween. Vocalist and guitarist Matt Papai has a charming yet vicious voice that hits the high notes with savage ease, especially on "Child of The Dream", easily the best song here.

The others are less memorable, though not without their merits, with "Defender" boasting some Accept-like backing vocals and "With Doom We Come" having a Dio-fronted Rainbow vibe about it, only with the gas pedal pushed all the way down to the floor. This is a demo, so a raw sound is expected, and it pretty much sounds live, apart from the vocal overdubs, proving Moros Nyx have what it takes to pull this off on stage. Bottom line, Rite of Rebellion is a snarling bite of true metal that shows a lot of promise, and it will get your rocks off for twelve minutes if you have it to spare.
