about

Long-deleted 2003 sophomore EP from Melbourne instrumental juggernaut The Night Terrors.

This lo-fi collection of hi-energy tracks captures the synth punk live intensity and sci-fi indie prog leanings of the band's original lineup, just before their initial split.

Huge synths, distorted bass and manic rock drums dominate throughout, while the first stirrings of the future Terrors theremin-as-lead-instrument focus are apparent on the dreamy 'Teeth Under Your Pillow'.

From the original presser:

"Melbourne instrumental heroes The Night Terrors hammer home their reputation as one of the most exciting, dynamic and unusual bands in the country with their second release, Lightless. This is The Night Terrors distilled, compacted and stripped-back to their frightening core; thunderously biting metal-bass, crisp buzzing synths, psychotic drumming and the manic wail of the theremin. Building on the atmospheric post-prog that characterised their debut EP, The Terrors emerge here in a far more visceral mode, delivering a deep-fried chunk of live energy and nastiness that hurtles headlong through the boundaries of the indie/instro genre, veering from frighteningly catchy crunch-pop, to monstrous hook-driven synth-punk and beyond."
