ARAGORN picture
Aragorn, named after character in J.R.R Tolkien's the Lord Of The Rings, was a nwobhm band formed in 1978 in Cheshire, England. It featured singer Chris Dunne, guitarist John Hull, bassist Dale Lee and drummer Mike Ellis. They were one of the earliest signings of Neat Records, releasing single "Black Ice" in 1981, which later came to grow in cult stature. Studio sessons for their first full-lenght album took place in 1982, but it never materialized despite repeated attempts to place these recordings with prospective labels. Aragorn was split soon after this. Their unreleased tracks were later collected into Noonday Anthology.

Black ice...

Genre: NWoBHM

Now, that's what I'm talking about! The two tracks on this release are right up my Strasse. The musicianship is not exactly top notch, but there is a certain darkness to both "Black Ice" and "Noonday" which I think should appeal to fans of various modern more extreme types of metal - even if this release is essentially just high octane hard rock.

"Noonday" starts out a ballady sort of track (with a certain Paradise Lost feel to it), but suddenly explodes into a semi-punky track that sounds a bit like a simplified and speed up Black Sabbath song which contains a wah-wah solo which Kirk Hammett might well have have been influenced by. "Black Ice" starts out with a heavy Judas Priest-like riff, but similarly explodes into an uptempo noisy track whose chorus is, not original, but pretty darn groovy.

As it happens both tracks on this album remind me of the title track of The Damned Things' upcoming "Ironiclast" album, and, who knows, maybe Scott Ian listened to this album when he was younger...?

This release should appeal to fans of both traditional metal and modern extreme metal, and I think that those who like punk music and noose rock might actually like this too.
