Multi-national thrashers NIGHTRAGE have tapped Snowy Shaw (THERION, KING DIAMOND, DREAM EVIL, DIMMU BORGIR) to sit behind the kit for their August 26 concert in South Korea. Snowy will be filling in for regular NIGHTRAGE drummer Johan Nunez, who has been busy touring and recording with FIREWIND. NIGHTRAGE states, “We are honored to have [Snowy] behind the drums!”
NIGHTRAGE‘s fifth album, “Insidious”, was released last September via Lifeforce Records. The CD featured guest appearances by Gus G. (OZZY OSBOURNE, FIREWIND), Tomas S. Englund (EVERGREY), Apollo Papathanasio (FIREWIND, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS), John K (BIOMECHANICAL) and the band’s former frontman Tomas Lindberg (also known for his work with AT THE GATES, THE CROWN and LOCK UP). Lindberg appeared on the band’s first two albums — 2003’s “Sweet Vengeance” and 2005’s “Descent Into Chaos” — before being replaced by Jimmie Strimell, who sang on 2007’s “A New Disease Is Born”.
