NERGARD‘s new album “A Bit Closer To Heaven” is in the finishing stages right now, after four years of songwriting and recording. This is an album that have been rewritten three times and the mastermind behind the project, Andreas Nergård, have probably ditched 120 minutes of music to end up with the remaining 11 songs which he believe is high quality Melodic Metal.
