The Nightmare

My last run-in with Cristian Bergagna's music was At The End of The Alley, which was an awesome album full of classic horror/giallo vibes that you definitely should not miss in your collections. The Nightmare has those same vibes, but adds a layer of distortion, crossing over the darksynth border and handing you insane hooks and heavy beats in spades. So prepare your best retro outfit, get your knives ready and we'll meet on the bloodsoaked dancefloor.
Favorite track: Starring at the Dead Lights.

XARGON A very cool creation that swings between more traditional horror synth themes, and a funky almost dystopian cyber-synth feel. This album has a great tempo and I also feel the age old adage applies here, that quality is better than quantity, with relatively longer tracks done really well. Favorite track: Le Cauchemar.

ROBBiemusPrime™️ Cristian has created a new favorite it's packed with supernatural energy and laced with horror and dark themes it definitely pulled me in - from Djin's Hand through Phobeter. Icelus will have you in his world, listen and get lost there Favorite track: The Djin's Hand.

SokK Cristian Bergagna found a secret formula to create tracks that are both deeply rooted in the horror movie culture AND so god damn catchy and groovy. One minute you'll be trembling in fear, and the next you'll be headbanging like crazy.
The Nightmare is an incredible album : heavier, groovier, more efficient, yet so respectful of "classical" horror movies theme. You have to listen to it. Favorite track: Le Cauchemar.

Like Jorge Luis Borges said: “The dreams are gender, the nightmares, the species”.
Nightmares, “niht mare or niht mare” that means “The demon of the night”, have always something diabolic in them, like someone is trying to break us in our most weak moment, while we sleep.
This album is about the fights in which we struggle while our eyes are closed and we cannot escape. They represent our most raw fears and changes us every day after we wake up.
Jorge Luis Borges ask himself: “What if nightmares are strictly supernatural? What if nightmares are cracks from hell? What if during the nightmares, we are literally in hell?”
