Lightmare - Certain Death (Listen of Don't) 1993
of Dawn at Noon 32 AD" [instrumental] (1:45)
Lightmare follow in the footsteps of fellow German speed metallers Blind Guardian. My only problem with this album is I just can't get past the vocals. Frank Wegner is a competent vocalist, but is obviously still a bit immature in his style. I bought this disc after buying "The Fool" which is a far superior album both musically and vocally. I found this copy used locally for $5.99.
Lightmare - Vampires (Independent) 1995
This is an improvement over "Certain Death" adding in a bit more melody and more memorable hooks. New vocalist Timon Schreiber is a better vocalist than Frank Wegner, but still has a ways to go before competing with German metal giants like Udo, Ralph Scheepers, or Hansi Kursch. Still not bad for an independant release with no financial backing at all. This little ep sells for over $10, which is pricey for only four songs, but I found this copy for $4.
Lightmare - The Fool (ATM) 1997
of Rebellion" [instrumental] (1:40)
Now this is a fine German power metal release. "The Fool" is chock full of speedy riffs, double bass, and classy clean vocals by Timon Schreiber. While the album does have it's own unique sound, it also echoes Stratovarious in style and quality. Overall, Lightmare's finest effort.
