Dream Evil has had some brilliant moments, and a good deal of it is found on this EP. The title track Children Of The Night sounds like a heavier version of the Scorpions classic Big City Nights, the lyrics are a cheesy variation on Dio’s poetic approach, but once you’ve heard it you cannot forget it no matter how hard you try. Dragonheart is a mid-grade speed metal track that probably was a b-side from their debut album, where they sounded the most like a Hammerfall clone. Betrayed is a slower heavier number, but still listens somewhat lightly with Niklas vocals still invoking the spirit of Klaus Meine. The acoustic version of Evilized is vocally exposed, which works well for this outfit. If you want to spend a little money to find out what you’d be in for with this outfit, this is the album to get. It is a perfectly happy medium between the dragons and magic of their debut and the dark imagery of their follow-up Evilized and 2 of the unreleased songs are definite keepers.
