Nightmarer stream a new track of upcoming 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.
Nightmarer are now premiering the third sinister song taken from their forthcoming debut full-length, ‘Cacophony of Terror‘, which is scheduled for release on March 23rd, 2018 through Season Of Mist.
To be more precise, the stream actually includes two album tracks, “Death” and “Swansong“, which the band views as one inseparable unit.
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!”
