Dark Nightmare - 'The Dark Demo Years' (album stream)

Οι Dark Nightmare σχηματίσθηκαν στα Γρεβενά στα τέλη της περασμένης χιλιετίας. Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει τρία full length albums με πιο πρόσφατο τον δίσκο "Tortured Souls" προ εξαετίας. Η Steel Gallery Records συγκέντρωσε το υλικό από την πρώτη περίοδο της Ελληνικής μπάντας (τα τρία demos δηλαδή). Η συλλογή τιτλοφορείται "The Dark Demo Years" και "βγήκε" το περασμένο καλοκαίρι...

Ο δίσκος των Dark Nightmare 'The Dark Demo Years'
Δελτίο τύπου: «Steel Gallery Records with great honor presents: Dark Nightmare from Grevena city, Northern Greece: Rising from the Dragonlakes of Pindus Mountains, the mighty warriors of the Greek underground.

The band's legendary early years! The band's first three demos for the very first time on one CD, fully remastered, packed with bonus tracks, unreleased photos, lyrics and a complete early years biography. Without doubt Dark Nightmare is one of the most important active bands of the Greek Epic / Power Metal scene.

Their music and their overall attitude are often mentioned as main influences by various bands of our era. Started back in 1999, they released three demos: "Dark Nightmare" (2001), "Earth in Danger" (2003) and "The Blood Land" (2004), all in very small quantities and now impossible to find in their original CD-r format.

Throughout those three releases Dark Nightmare evolved their trademark sound, being one of the very first bands from Northern Greece to lead a rising wave of newcomers to the 00s Greek Heavy Metal underground. It is now time for this legendary material to be reissued officially.

Steel Gallery Records team dived into the vaults, giving shape to a release that captures the magic of the band's early years. The Greek Metal fanatics have been describing "The Blood Land" demo as an "instant classic", so no more words are needed here.

Kostas Scandalis remastered all the 17 tracks of the CD -including the bonus live tracks which present the band's raw force on stage-, Kostas Theoharis created the amazing, epic front cover which is based on a real photo of Vourinos mountain (Northern Greece) and Chris Papadakis wrote the liner notes, revealing all the valuable info regarding the band's first era.

Complete lyrics and unreleased photos are included in a 12-page booklet designed by Kostas Athanasoglou. Get ready for a mighty journey to the dark years of a living legend! The pure Hellenic Heavy Metal spirit will be by your side! Onward to the Dragonlakes! For fans of Liege Lord, Manilla Road, Omen, Virgin Steele & Doomsword!»
