IVORY NIGHT – THE HEALING
Music and beyond.
"THE HEALING is an ambitioned piece of work created by the band comprising members of ROSS THE BOSS (the famous co-founder of MANOWAR) and former drummer of Germany's Top-20 Rockoutfit SALTATIO MORTIS released through the legendary label Aaarrg.
The album is a kind of audio-diary. The protagonist makes his way through 13 short-stories dealing with smaller or larger tragedies of every day's life. Cold and misanthropic bureaucracy in 'QMF08/15', barely legal attraction for an online-model in 'Mary 1am' or pure auto-aggression ('The Blinded') ? THE HEALING tells many tragedies of the here and now, which are part of the stage performance during concerts. The superficially light-footed 'Pop Star' is nothing else than a sarcastic potshot towards the uniformity of the casting-show-industry."
Rock Hard (translated):"IVORY NIGHT are one of the most distinct and technically adept Metalbands of the German Underground. With their ambitioned concept album 'The Healing' the K-Town group deliver a multi-faceted record elegantly reconciling raw Thrash with finest Prog- and Power Metal. First and foremost singer Patrick Fuchs earths cunning breaks and catchy refrains with his snotty but highly melodic voice."
HEAVY (translated):"Following the underground-praised '7 – Dawn Of The Night' and 'Machine', 'The Healing' is the third album of the Power Metallers and shows once more how much potential this distinct band owns."
Break Out (translated):"While some casting-show starlets will anonymously serve you at the cheese counter in some years the Metal scene will surely remember IVORY NIGHT as then 'The Healing' might be regarded a cult album of 2010."
uberrock.co.uk:"'Cash Flow' rocks out big time as the album opener. A lovely lyrical sentiment flies by in 'I'm a shark sandwich', and one thing is for certain this is not a shit sandwich! This song is clearly the stand out track on the album and it would make an excellent single. A great package, with a well-designed lyric booklet showcasing the band living through this nightmare sexual journey called 'The Healing' that will make it to my iPhone for regular play."
