The album is available for pre order here. ‘Ego Dominus Tuus’ was recorded and mixed at Flatline Audio Studios by Dave Otero (CEPHALIC CARNAGE, CATTLE DECAPITATION, COBALT). The tracklist and album art for ‘Ego Dominus Tuus’ can be found below.
Regarding the new track, vocalist aR-Ra’d al-Iblis issued the following statement:
“The lyrics in “I am the Gateway” deal with the revelation of the higher self in the vision and communion with the absolute other. The diabolic and daimonic brother who is met at the edge of borders into the Unknown. It speaks of the pact between self and non-self, manifest and transcendental, spoken and the unthinkable. Met in the circle of pacts, these two principles coming together in the daring of facing each other reveals the mystical peaks of the magical arts.”

Established in 1999, NIGHTBRINGER was created as a conduit for the contemplations on the mysteries of death as it is understood in the tradition of the art magical. The band have an uncompromising, orthodox approach to black metal. 2011’s ‘Hierophany of the Open Grave’ has further solidified the band’s signature sound: characterized by cacophonous walls of distortion, haunting melodies, and occult lyrics revering the unholy.
NIGHTBRINGER has made select rare appearances in the United States and Europe as part of various metal festivals; these include Maryland Deathfest, Under the Black Sun Festival, and the cult Gathering of the Shadows.
