The tenth full-length album by the cult German Melodic Hard Rock/Heavy Metal band.
Two and a half decades have passed since an album named "Night Of Passion" has taken the German scene by storm. It was one of the superb moments for the Hard Rock/Metal band of Mad Max. After the band's comeback in 1999 they have been quite a live show. "Another Night Of Passion", consisting of the band's original lineup, is based on the same vein of their old classic and can be described as a sort of continuance to the old prominence of the 80s.
Unlike some of their earlier releases, Mad Max played hard ball on this album. Through the tracklist of eleven tracks it was all around German Hard Rock and Heavy Metal in the vein of early 80s Accept blended with an American flavor. Without creating atmosphere using keyboards and other modern effects, the material was delivered straight up and with the kind of force that only 80s bands can come up with. Even though some might view this as a downfall or a shortcoming, the material played out quiet the same. Mad Max, next to with their dominant lead vocalist/guitarist Michael Voss, didn't seem to intend to write compositions out of the ordinary therefore everything will sound rather similar in orientation.
"Another Night Of Passion" is a good example of an album that is on a constant move with no withdrawals. Nearly the entire tracklist is a mid tempo of nonstop action. The songs are accessible and easy to comprehend; some are mere Rock anthems, under the same known formula that created most of the hits of the genre.
Yes, for new listeners they would probably sound like an old cliché but in the end of the day, and old school fans would probably will back you up on this, Mad Max have the experience on how to Rock it right and through the night!!
