Review Type: 

Nightmare are a French band, that have been plodding the metal scene since some 35 years or so, with a break between 1987 and 1999..

I guess if you’re into bands like Pantera, Grave Digger and Brainstorm, you’ll probably like Nightmare as well.  As for me, well, despite not being really into these aforementioned bands, I cannot deny the quality these guys bring us.  Fronted by Jo Amore, a shouter that is gifted with a very good voice that lies somewhere between Ronnie James Dio and Russel Allen (or Jorn Lande if you like him more), he has just the right voice for this kind of power metal.  The rhythm department builds up a very solid baseline, where the two guitarists, together with the vocals, can shine through.

Despite having been around for so long, it was my first acquaintance with this band, and a very pleasurable one at that as well.  A band I will be looking out for new material.
