Heavy Metal Nightmare

Portuguese Nightmare: A Tribute To The Misfits is a very unique CD. I love how diverse the sounds are on this, and a good amount of them are rather heavy, like really heavy. That's welcome though since most tribute CD's don't dare try to be so bold in a choice of bands. The styles range from rockabilly, to grindcore, to anything in-between. Some sound like death metal while others sounds like extreme metal. Then there's a few that really stand out because they're nothing like the rest. All in all it's very cool. I love the artwork too.

If you're a fan of the Misfits and you like the idea of the craziest compilation of bands then this CD is totally worth it. The artwork alone is worth it. And for those of you that are younger you know you don't get the artwork on the back cover or inside cover or inside the booklet itself. The whole point of a CD is the visual appeal, and a lot of CD's even have the words, though this one doesn't include lyrics. I'm impressed by how extremely heavy most of these bands truly are. One band, Simbiose, sounds like Napalm Death. Others have some great extreme vocal stylings. All the bands are from Portugal. That's the idea here, just Portuguese bands from mostly heavy circles. The few that aren't heavy help to break up the tempo here and there. The lighter tunes are also stylish with twangy guitar and punk stylings. The screaming tracks are going to blister your ears at higher volumes but it's worth it. If this isn't the most diverse compilation you've ever heard then I would be shocked. Pretty cool, though I can't figure out why it took so long, and why only from Portugal? I'm not complaining, just wondering. If you're a fan of heavy music this will open you up to new chaotic sounds.
