Nightmare Parts Ways With Napalm Records

The band Nightmare explain the reason of the separation from Napalm Records:

We have parted ways with Napalm Records very amicably... We will never forget what this label has done for us so far... giving us the breath for a second birth in 1999... Napalm being actually focusing into a completely different music style from what we offer, we simply decided all together that it would be better for us to find a more suitable label for what we have to offer...

The band is looking for a record deal.
