There are few bands out there, that are as dark & dissonant as the extreme metal band Nightmarer. The group first hits the extreme metal underground with their first EP Chasm in early 2016 and shook it to the core with dissonance, devastating heaviness and majestic walls of sound. 2018 will mark the release of the band’s debut record, which promises to be one of the darkest and crushing albums of the year!
We are happy to premiere not one, but two tracks of the upcoming debut record: ‘Cacophony of Terror'(out March 23rd, 2018 on Season Of Mist).
NIGHTMARER guitarist Simon Hawemann comments:
“Our track ‘Death’ marks the inevitable end of ‘Cacophony of Terror’ – it is the final stage of a battle that was never meant to be won. My inspiration for this song was all too real: I had to witness a person close to me decease over the course of several days. The riffs and sounds in ‘Death’ reflect the heavy breathing, the tortured moans, and the spasms of a dying human being – sights and sounds that are burned into my memory forever. This experience served as a morbidly twisted foundation to give death itself an appropriate soundtrack. Once it’s all over, ‘Death’ seamlessly makes the transitions into ‘Swansong’, which offers nothing else than just the relief of not having to fight any longer. One could not exist without the other, so we’re premiering both tracks merged into one today. We are thrilled to have joined forces with Alan Dubin (KHANATE/GNAW), who lent his terrifying voice to ‘Death’. His piercing screams serve as the perfect personification of the demon that lurks in the plagued mind of the album’s protagonist. Without further ado, embrace death!”
