Nightmares can be both beautiful and fascinating while remaining true to their terrifying roots. 
The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble cinematic side-project The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation set out to prove that on 2012's Egor.
It creaks in and out of coherency and confusing despair like a David Lynch adaptation of a Cormac McCarthy novel.  Noises sneak in and out of the mix, almost as if you're not sure if you actually heard them or not, while a tense under-currant never lifts leaving the listener uneasy for the full 70 minutes, spread over 4 lengthy tracks.
