Genre: HARDCORE / PUNK
Country of Origin: JAPAN
First release 1990 on legendary Selfish Records! When it comes to japanese hardcore, it seems that a lot of people are obsessed with ADK or Dogma Records. Solid labels of course, but when I think to the label that defines japanese classic hardcore sound, I only have one name in my mind: the legendary Selfish Records.
This label has released over the years so many classics by even more classic bands such as Death Side, Gauze, Outo, Systematic Death, Lip Cream and many others. Not to mention all their classic compilation LPs. Such a great label!
Along with Gauze & Warhead, Nightmare is one of the few classic japanese bands that never broke up and it's still going strong after all these years. But when it comes to their records, 1990's "Give Notice Of Nightmare" LP is their highlight moment. Perfect sound, incredible songwriting.
