AMERICAN NIGHTMARE is back on track!

Yeah, whether you know this seminal hardcore band you'll surely be like "what the heck that's some wondrous news!"
Read on the full press release...

Rise Records and celebrated Boston hardcore quartet American Nightmare are pleased to announce the band’s forthcoming self-titled full-length album. Being released on Friday, February 16, American Nightmare represents the band’s rise from the ashes, expanding their legacy and reestablishing the band as titans of the genre in the process. The enigmatic act may have only released two full-length albums since forming nearly two decades ago but after temporarily losing their name, changing members and breaking up, the band has returned with a dark hardcore record that pays homage to groups who have always influenced its sound ranging from Negative Approach, SSD, and The Cro-Mags to those extending beyond the realm of hardcore such as Joy Division and Siouxsie And The Banshees.

Check out the first track from the album, “The World Is Blue,” now streaming in full on YouTube HERE

IN.SI.DIA interview

by marcs77

You’re free not to share this view but Italy has had its fair share of good heavy metal bands over the years since the obscure times when the term was invented.
IN.SI.DIA from Brescia, Italia, is a thrash metal band -that’s the scene where they moved the first steps back at end of the 80’s early 90’s- that after reuniting a few years ago, following an indefinite long-standing hiatus, has recently managed to work on and write a bunch of new tunes and hole themselves up into the studio to record and produce the new full-length album “Denso Inganno”.
I’ve been a fan of this band since the early times I was gonna get introduced to the heavier and more underground music and I’d never thought to be here, 20+ years later, and get the chance to interview Manuel (Manny) Merigo, guitar player and founding member of the Italian metal combo, for our webzine.
Let’s read on what Manny had to say to gotanerve-zine and check out their new album, out on Miagliano (BI), Italy based metal imprint Punishment 18 records, if you haven’t yet.

gan: Hey IN.SI.DIA how’s life treating you?
