"Nightmare Vision: Music for Film" collects German composer Karate King's best musical pieces written for film in 2015 and 2016. Inspired by his passion for 70's and 80's euro horror soundtracks, Karate King fluctuates between the macabre and beautiful to the downright perverse in these retro-sounding, yet timeless compositions. Karate King and Karate King Records invite you to get lost in their darkly cinematic world; but be warned: once you enter, it's hard to get out.
