Due to an especially harsh set of criteria set by yours truly, one of my favourite records of last year didn’t make it onto my Top 50 list – The Night Terrors’ Back To Zero was indeed released last year, but was a remastered vinyl reissue of an album that first surfaced in 2009 on CD. Last year was the first time I heard it, and it blew me away, in the way that only Australian Theremin-led noisy prog instrumentals can. And as I used up all my Theremin facts in my review of that particular gem, I shall have to find a new handle on this new record. Which turned out to be easier than I thought, given that the whole of this one is geared towards placing a very specific form of dread in the mind of the listener.
Well, it scared the bejaysus out of me anyway.
