c. thielen Dark, bestial, moving. The whole EP feels modern, yet at the same time conjures up images of 80s slasher films. But really, Nocturne City is pensive. I would decidedly choose this word as the most fitting to capture the mood of the EP. Though it throbs ('Welcome to Nocturne City'), cuts ('Vengence'), stretches longingly ('Fantasy'), and struts ('Night Business'), Nocturne City is confident in its affections. It is emotive, but mostly reflective; it is muscular, but mostly sensitive. Favorite track: Vengeance (The Return Of The Night Driving Avenger) [Bonus Track].

SokK This is the EP that brought me into Perturbator. I just love the work on the atmosphere, and even if the whole album lacks of variety (compared to Perturbator's other releases), it is still one of my favorite. Favorite track: Welcome to Nocturne City.

Matthew Toye Another fantastic collection of tunes from France's Perturbator. 'Nocturne City' is dreamlike with cold and dark undertones. Favorite track: Fantasy (feat. Dream Koala).

Set in a Neo-Noir world in the year 2084, Nocturne City is the soundtrack to a non-existent movie filled with imagery that only lives in the listener's imagination.

Its evocative music tells stories of love and violence that take place in a dark, futuristic realm where anything can happen.

"I hope this trip will leave you full of dream-like memories. So, close your eyes, hit play, and enjoy this voyage into the darkest streets of the fictitious Nocturne City."
- Perturbator
