Out to kill…There is murder in the air… Out to kill… There’s murder in the air… I set out to kill…And they got to run away I set out to kill… And they got to run away! Out in the streets, out in the Night He’s quietly walking, there’s nobody around Out in the street, out in the Night They scream and shout, the murderer gets away! Out to kill…There is murder in the air… Out to kill… There’s murder in the air… I set out to kill…And they got to run away I set out to kill… And they got to run away! Down in the City the lights are so bright A killer is free when everything’s right Down in the City the Night is so young People are happy, I’m warning them to run! Out to kill…There is murder in the air… Out to kill… There’s murder in the air… I set out to kill…And they got to run away I set out to kill… And they got to run away!

“THE DRAGONFLY EP”

Label: private

Songs: Silent Nights / Mercy / Spacebound / Disappear From View

One of the top-rank rarities in NWOBHM rarities is Dragonfly´s selftitled 4-track EP, and not without reason, as it is a true find. Dragonfly are genuine NWOBHM; nonetheless they have a style that is very much their own with the occasional blends of Doom as the most unique factor. Additionally, there´s a lot of creative steam in the instrumental department, the guitar in particularly. This is best captured on the offbeat, mid-paced “Mercy” that assumingly starts off as a generic NWOBHM number, but gets into the diversity mode after the first vocal lines, as it develops into an instrumental affair, respectively going through a guitar solo, harmonized phrasing, another solo, a Doom chop, and multiple breaks, leaving only but a scant 1.00 minute of vocal phrasing over a total of 3:25 minutes running time. “Silent Nights” spins off with a mild Doom flavoured guitar, and continues as an early NWOBHM Speedster with a melodic sidekick (vocals) and no less than 3 solo sections! A song that is sure to please those that dig speed-driven UK Metal in the styles of Trident (“Destiny”) and Salem (“Reach For Eternity”). “Spacebound” is sort of a Rock ballad with semi Doom-flavoured slug riffage and Fusion! Hooks in the accompaniment of the guitar solo! The disc concludes with “Disappear From View”; another NWOBHM speedster, patterned upon an agile mobility riff. Sensational.
