NIGHTMARE – About To Explode

Columbian skull crushing old school heavy metal here from the four-piece act Nightmare on this album "About To Explode". Fans should expect high octane vocals, riffing with the spirit of 80’s speed and power at the helm, along with a little bit of NWOBHM ambiance. Primitive, down to earth production values keep the band’s sound firmly at the heart of what I desire from a metal artist: lean, mean and charging forward.
Running Wild, Judas Priest, and Iron Maiden come to mind the most on blistering tracks such as "Friends of Hell", the twin harmony filled "Invasion", and the double bass charging title cut. 6 years after their debut "High Speed Venom" album, "About To Explode" should delight most who live for the early to mid- 1980’s metal days.
Grab your leather, tight jeans, studs, and raise your fist to Nightmare.
