Re-release of the debut full-length album by legendary British Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band.
"On Through TAhe Night" established the band as one of the leading lights of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. While possessing the tight, controlled attack of comrades Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, Def Leppard was uninterested in the fantastic, menacing, and sometimes gothic themes of those bands; instead, "On Through the Night" is a collection of working-class Hard Rock anthems informed by the big, glittering hooks of Glam Rock. It may lack the detailed production and more Pop-oriented songwriting of later efforts, but it's also arguably their heaviest album, and some Leppard fans prefer this sound!
The album features re-recorded versions of "Rocks Off" and "Overture", tracks from the band's original independently released EP, "The Def Leppard E.P.". Other tracks are rerecorded versions of early demos, some of which appeared on the "First Strike" and "Warchild" bootlegs. "Rocks Off", "Wasted", "Rock Brigade" (b/w "When the Walls Came Tumbling Down") and "Hello America" were released as singles. However, the versions of "Rocks Off" and "Wasted" that appears on the singles is a different recording from that of the LP, as is its B-side, "Hello America".
It charted at #51 on the Billboard 200 and #15 on the UK Albums Chart. The album was certified Platinum by the RIAA on 9 May 1989.
Mercury Records/PolyGram Records/Universal Music Group, 1980/1986/2013 (822 533-2 M-1). Made in Germany.
