Whereas early Brighter Death Now recordings tended to be largely instrumental and atmospherically oriented, present-day releases often feature screamed vocals, distorted beyond comprehension. Throughout its history, Karmanik has kept his music's thematic elements focused on such topics as child molestation, sadism, and psychosis.
The Great Death trilogy and May All Be Dead have become rare collectors items, and are sought after by many Brighter Death Now fans. Roger Karmanik has been active under other names such as Lille Roger (Swedish for Little Roger) and Bomb The Daynursery.
LP. Compilation of two recordings originally released on two distinct "Pain in Progress" cassettes: in 1988 under the pseudonym Bomb the Daynursery for the seven opening tracks, and later on as Brighter Death Now for the seven last tracks.
