Night Terrors / Chrome Corpse Other Various Artists I've been following Night Terrors and Chrome Corpse for a while now. I've managed to collect a lot their releases over the years with nearly everything long since sold out like the ultra limited Body Slave cassette  by Night Terrors complete with hand-numbering and a patch limited to a paltry 8 copies and Chrome Corpse' Pressurizer limited to just 50 copies.  Both bands have stayed busy releasing music. Chrome Corpse released Detecting Movement 12" off  Oraculo Records home to great releases by The Father & The Sun and Holygram and Night Terrors unveiled their Overman CD. That was 2019 and here we are in October 2020 and we are still watching the world burn. Thankfully we can expand our end of days soundtrack with choice cuts by both of these impressive US based artists.Anyway, the split cassette has been out for a while in digital format until recently released on cassette. Both artists belt out their offerings with an intense surge of power and fierce energy. Night Terrors tears their way across the chaos laying down a calculated assault of dark electronic and experimental amalgamations weaving a nice dose of hell-spawned noise and churning ritualistic beats to help or hinder your pandemic problems. The vocals are distant and dark, bringing a very menacing tone to the atmosphere reminiscent of Decoded Feedback circa 1998-1999. Musically, there is a lot of blending styles and Night Terrors' end result is captivating. Chrome Corpse plays a more straight-forward approach to EBM. They tend not to drift too far from the epicenter of their origins. Angry pounding beats paired with the old school shouted vocals makes this a nice arch from the glory of yesteryear to the present day. Chrome Corpse finds ways to inject flavor with interesting samples and sounds blended into the track. Both bands are worthy of attention. It was nice to see a quality label like Oraculo take Chrome Corpse to vinyl with the admirable Detecting Movement 12". I'd love to see the same for Night Terrors. Until then, mainline Black Moon and Now, Here to continue your exploration of the grinding, unnerving and relentless dark works of Night Terrors. As for the EBM pounders Chrome Corpse, check out the above mentioned Detecting Movement 12",  as well as the Bodyhammers CD  on Razgrom Records. If you still yearn for more, indulge yourself to the all out skull-splitting rager, Gun Spit  from 2019 in a limited edition cassette release. Of course there is always time for some high-powered goblin gambling with Pressurizer. To put the whole release into perspective in regards to the rigid dichotomy between both artists can be summed up as: Chrome Corpse rapidly moves forward with relentless combos and repeated blows to the head, while Night Terrors flays the body and takes it's time ensuring the torment lingers on. If you still don't have anything by either band, it's time to change that. I sense more offerings are soon at hand. Vertex Records is home to most of Night Terrors and Chrome Corpse releases both physical and digital. You have some exploring to do. In the meantime check out Joseph's and Steve's coverage of both artists right here on Brutal Resonance! 450
