Melbourne’s The Night Terrors offer a mind-melting mix of dark synth magic, thunderous dreamscapes and other-worldly electronica. An interstellar horror-synth fantasy featuring an orgy of vintage electronics, SPIRAL VORTEX sees the band build upon their post-prog roots to explore a broader universe of warped psychedelia, thunderous dreamscapes and dark cosmic dance.
Featuring the haunting theremin melodies of Miles Brown (student of Russian theremin queen Lydia Kavina), vintage horror synths, and the powerhouse drumming of Damian Coward (Heirs, High Tension) The Night Terrors have earned a reputation as one of Australia’s most unusual and original acts.
The Night Terrors have toured with Hawkwind (UK), Black Mountain (CAN), Melt-Banana (JPN), Serena Maneesh (NOR) Nick Oliveri (USA), and shared the stage with Lou Reed (USA), Goblin (IT), Laurie Anderson (USA), Boris (JPN), Bardo Pond (USA), Marc Ribot (USA), Electric Electric (FR), Midnight Juggernauts (AUS), HTRK (AUS) and more. The band has toured Europe extensively and appeared at international festivals such as VIVID Live (AUS), Polyhymnia (DE), Bracara Extreme (PORT), Denovali Swingfest (DE), For All the Cows Fest (AU) & Incubate (NL).
Following the release of two stellar EPs “The Night Terrors” and “Lightless” through Unstable Ape Records, The Night Terrors’ debut full length album Back To Zero was released in April 2009 through Australian label EXO Records. Back To Zero was reissued for release in Europe/USA/Japan through TRENDKILL Recordings (France) in September 2010, and then reissued on double 12″ coloured vinyl through Homeless Records (AUS).
In March 2014 The Night Terrors unleash their long awaited follow-up to 2009′s Back To Zero with the release of SPIRAL VORTEX – available for preorder now as a deluxe, 180gm transparent red with Halloween orange splatter colour vinyl edition and gatefold sleeve through Homeless Records. Available via Forte as an exclusive 2CD that adds Back To Zero to Spiral Vortex, housed in a deluxe digi-wallet and unique to European customers.
"Folks you should check out this incredible record by The Night Terrors. It is pretty awesome, it's like Bruno Nicolai meets MBV jamming with a gigantic theremin." (Death Waltz Recording Company)
