NIGHTMARER To Embark on Devastation On The Nation’s 2019 North American Tour!

Extreme metal collective NIGHTMARER (featuring current and ex members of THE OCEAN, WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH, GIGAN, and more) will embark on their first ever full tour for Devastation On The Nation’s 2019 North American run. The band will be joining metal titans BELPHEGOR, DARK FUNERAL, INCANTATION, HATE, and VALE OF PNATH on this month-long trek that will kick off on May 17 in San Diego, CA and will conclude on June 15 in Los Angeles, CA. The full itinerary and ticket links can be found below.

Speaking out the tour, the band has commented:
“The time for LIVE TOTAL DISSONANCE WORSHIP has come! NIGHTMARER will be joining the Devastation on the Nation tour. This has been a long time coming, but we were determined to make an impactful live debut and this one couldn’t hit any harder. The 2019 edition of the tour features a sweeping blow of international extreme Metal heavyweights. We will be sharing the stage with DARK FUNERAL, BELPHEGOR, INCANTATION, HATE and VALE OF PNATH across the US and Canada.”

NIGHTMARER will be touring in support of their debut full length, ‘Cacophony of Terror,’  which was released via Season of Mist in March of 2018. On ‘Cacophony of Terror’ NIGHTMARER deploy a harsh and unrelenting battery of dissonant death. The international trio’s state-of-the-art extremity is as nuanced and articulate as it is intense. NIGHTMARER is a band on the rise, and ‘Cacophony of Terror’ a truly great album of world-class, modern death metal.

Seemingly out of nowhere, NIGHTMARER made an explosive impact on the extreme metal underground with their 2016 debut EP ‘Chasm.’ This furious whirlwind of low end dissonance, devastating heaviness and majestic walls of sound took the scene by storm and the first vinyl pressing almost sold out immediately.

Simon Hawemann (ex-WAR FROM A HARLOTS MOUTH): all guitars
