Review

The band logo looks like they stole the letter-font from Iron Maiden! The cover looks more like a promo copy... it only mentioned the band, titles, members, the studio that recorded the songs and a contact address which shows that Nightmare came from Essen/Germany. I guess this was a private one from the band. It's an early Hard Rock/Metal hybrid, no, don't get wet now! It's more crappy Metal, a little bit influenced by NWoBHM and Misfits how it seems. Both tracks are played in a faster mid tempo, but for the typically Metal genre the guitar sound is really weird and one of the guitars is not enough distorted. Sounds a bit strange... "Black Angel" even reminds me stilistically a lot to the famous Manimals "Blood is the harvest" LP who were the metallic answer to Misfits. Pretty obscure release that nobody really needs and therefore don't invest too much money in it!
