Despite being around since the early 80's, and coming back with some pretty outstanding power metal albums in the 00's, Grenoble's finest export Nightmare, still remain a largely unknown quantity outside of their native France. In 2007, they unleashed the monstrous Genetic Disorder, almost unnoticed. But its combination of violent riffs, huge choruses and general dark sound made it stand out in a genre not known for possessing those qualities. It immediately became one of my very favourite albums in the genre and I was very eager to see if their latest offering Insurrection could match it. Unfortunately, it doesn't quite manage to usurp, or even equal its awesome predecessor. But it is similar in style and does manage to produce some great moments.
