about

Melbourne horror synth heavyweights The Night Terrors return with their new album Spiral Vortex. Featuring the haunting theremin melodies of Miles Brown, plus an orgy of vintage electronics, Spiral Vortex sees the band build upon their post-prog roots to explore a broader universe of warped psychedelia, thunderous dreamscapes and dark cosmic dance.

released 28 February 2014


SOME NICE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN SAID ABOUT SPIRAL VORTEX
______________________________________________________

"I personally think SPIRAL VORTEX is brilliant. It is the kind of late night spiral (it can’t be helped) into the black hole of feverish lament and Giallo deconstruction (and dismemberment). And the spectral cinematics are evidently something the band revels in – titles like ‘Lasers For Eyes’, ‘Monster’ and especially ‘The Devil Played Backwards’ serves to drive this heavy theme home." (Sonic Masala)

**********************************************************************

"There’s a plethora of records out now from a legion of labels revisiting the unsettling soundtracks to many a pulpy horror or science fiction film, and what the Night Terrors do is take this all of this as a base to build upon – and they do this in such a staggering fashion that they are almost a genre in themselves, such is the way that they occupy their remarkable niche. Spiral Vortex is one of those genuinely exciting records that you can’t help but want to tell everyone else about, safe in the knowledge that they are unlikely to have ever come across anything quite like it before." (6 Days From Tomorrow)

SHIT YEAH, after reissuing their 2009 album "Back To Zero" on vinyl last year, our tight bros over at Homeless Records have unleashed a BRAND NEW Night Terrors album onto our unsuspecting turntables! Buckle up and prepare to dive into the maw of the VORTEX:

The Night Terrors exude the creeping dread of vintage Italo horror business - we're talkin' Frizzi, Goblin, etc but laced with a modern whiff of folks like Zombi, Umberto, Espectrostatic, and the like. NO GUITARS here folks, but the synths, bass and theremin more than make up for it, pulsing with a lyrical quality that makes this album sing like the soundtrack to a lost slasher movie - live drums too (provided by Damian Coward), that propel the whole thing forward more organically than the icy grip of a drum machine. If you're a fan of anything we've mentioned so far, don't hesitate and get this now! RECOMMENDED!!
