Chaos comes crashing in waves. Patterns emerge out of swirling energy. Darkness coalesces out of fragments into bizarre forms and strange angled shapes. What reads like a list of entries into H.P. Lovecraft’s dictionary of horrors is the nightmarish musical vision offered by Nightmarer on their debut album, ”Cacophony of Terror”.

Seemingly out of nowhere, Nightmarer hit the extreme metal underground with their first EP, ‘Chasm’ in early 2016. This furious whirlwind of low-end dissonance, devastating heaviness and majestic walls of sound took the scene by storm and the first 10″ vinyl pressing almost sold out while still on pre-order.

Conceived in 2014 by former members of bands such as Gigan, The Ocean, and War From a Harlots Mouth, this international trio derives only the most extreme elements of their previous musical outlets and takes those into another hellish dimension.

Carving their distinctly personal and unique path into the dark matter that Deathspell Omega, Dodecahedron, and Ulsect have ventured to explore,  Nightmarer are now set to release one of the darkest and crushing albums of 2018. Enter this ”Cacophony of Terror” in search of extreme sonic pleasures at your own peril!
