"The Quaker"
Heavily under-produced, terribly unknown and extremely well written! I'm getting surprised every time I find this record.

Ah now here is some really fine stuff. Dark Quarterers debut album is a showcase of epic heavy metal mixed with some early progressive metal elements. Two highlights are the Maiden-ish intrumental track "The Ambush" and the excellent "The Entity", which got a killer riff around 1:30 kicking in. There so much praise I could give this album but since i'm very bad putting my thoughts and opinions into words, I will leave it short. If you are anything into Iron Maiden, Manilla Road or Cirith Ungol then give this one a listen.

There are two versions of this album. The original from 1987, which sadly is soundwise very outdated. What you shall look for is the rerecording from 2012, which not only flesh out the six songs with nearly 9 minutes, it also have great production. I have a 2CD release which contains both versions as well as a bonus track. It's released by Shadow Kingdom Records, so that's the version to prefer.
