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

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.


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."

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!!

SOME NICE THINGS THAT WERE SAID ABOUT BACK TO ZERO:
__________________________________________________

"After the punk rock slurry that’s been dished about the Australian landscape, we all could use a breather. And this is one heady trip with plenty of room to breathe. A reissue of a 2009 CD, “Back To Zero” is made up of atmospheric post-rock instrumentals featuring a heavy dose of haunting electronics and Theremin. The Night Terrors could speak to the Tortoise or Godspeed crowd, but they seem steeped in horror film lore and the pulsing Death Waltz / Dagored label soundtracks than either of those outfits. (I must not be too far off; I see they’re doing a stint opening for Goblin). You could literally fly to Melbourne and grip a copy of this LP before I could finish breaking down every track. Kudos to Homeless for stepping out of their piss soaked cardboard box of a house and releasing this epic journey. There’s a song titled “Existential Revelation In The Circle Pit At Slayer” on here. You should probably buy this just to have that on your shelves." (RSF, Terminal-Boredom)

"Folks you should check out this incredible record by The Night Terrors. It is pretty awesome it's like Bruno Nicolai meets MBV jamming with a gigantic theremin." (Death Waltz Recording Company)
