AllMusic Review by

Hyde concocts a malevolent musical masterpiece on their 2002 release, aptly titled A Beautiful Nightmare. Blistering bouts of thunderous hardcore/metal assault the listener's ears from the opening of "Tell Me You Love Me" to the macabre scenarios one is treated to on "Skin Mask." It is quite apparent that these five men excel at pulverizing one's eardrums. While the album is rather predictable for anyone familiar with Hyde's brand of metalcore, A Beautiful Nightmare is one of the better albums of its genre, as the listener will find a multitude of technically proficient heavy metal that can satisfy even the most ravenous of musical appetites. Accompanying these intense noise blasts are two solid instrumentals ("Separation" and "Dying in the Sun") that allow one to truly see the skill Hyde possess. The only real annoyance presented with the album is the seemingly endless amount of silent filler that builds up to a hidden track which isn't nearly worth the time to hear. Aside from that one aggravating element, Hyde has once again delivered with an excellent batch of brutal tunes.
