Staff review by

Seeing that Nightmare have their own headlining shows in France, I guess they're pretty big there. However, internationally, they are nowhere near their fellow country mates that play more extreme forms of metal music like Gojira or Gorod, nor have they achieved the cult recognition Blut Aus Nord and Deathspell Omega, just to name a few. This is probably because the bands mentioned above are all pioneers of some sort in their own niche, but that doesn't mean Nightmare doesn't have their own sound despite being loosely categorised as a heavy metal band.

Rating: 9 Just got this and its fucking totally brilliant epic metal.........
It follows on from their last 3 amazing offerings, The Dominion Gate, Genetic Disorder and Insurrection (all great albums) and I'm amazed this band aren't global metal stars...

of sorts >.>
It's heavy metal with a thrashy edge and some symphonic elements. You should just listen to it
