Jasmin Wow! This is another Masterpiece of Music, outstanding and mindblowing! A true Pipe Organ, a Theremin, Synthesizers and a Drumset played by perfect Musicians from Melbourne in Australia. It sounds fantastic and Epic, listen to it! Favorite track: Gravissima.
The Art of BLEEP!
The Art of BLEEP! thumbnail
The Art of BLEEP! When you combine one of the most highly renowned pipe organs in the world today, with arguably Australia's best Theremin player (only 3 degrees of separation from the instrument's inventor himself!) the result is an album of epic Gothic intensity that can only be The Night Terrors. Haunting, mesmerising and other-worldly, the blending of that massive Organ, Theremin, bass, drums and synths transport one into realms of mood and atmosphere Mr Argento could only dream about. Favorite track: Kuceli Woke Up In The Graveyard.

Following their 2012 performance supporting Italian Horror soundtrack legends Goblin, Australia's horror synth heavyweights The Night Terrors were commissioned to compose an album of music with the Southern Hemisphere's largest Grand Pipe Organ. Recorded at the Melbourne Town Hall, Friday the 13th June 2014, and to be launched on Halloween 31st October 2014, Pavor Nocturnus - Composition for Grand Organ, Theremin, Electronics and Percussion is an inferno of haunting Theremin-led post-prog and dark cosmic dance. Quiet drops of sepulchral voltage and cacophonous whirls of intricate acoustic phenomena intermingle to prise open the maddening space between sentience and expiration. The Night Terrors create a euphorically terrifying dream sequence, just perfect for Halloween. Their most frightening and beautiful recording to date.
