Greek/Swedish melodic death metal act NIGHTRAGE has signed to a new label Sweden’s Despotz Records and has a new studio home,Dug Out Productions, and announced a brand new singer in Ronnie Nyman (from Swedish hardcore/metal band Always War). Now the band is going to celebrate their return with an announcement about a new album.
”The Puritan” is an uncompromising, dramatic and melodic death metal journey in its purest form. Eleven tracks crammed with brutal riffs, unforgettable hooks and the biggest production on any NIGHTRAGE release.
New front man Ronnie Nyman confirmed his right to the position in NIGHTRAGE with his over the top stage persona, cool character and amazing vocal skills during the band’s Japanese and Russian tours last year, and brings a new fresh approach to the NIGHTRAGE signature sound.
Songs Like The title track: ‘The Puritan’ and ‘Kiss Of A Sycophant’ bring that pure metal kick in the balls that many bands tend to forget about today. Songs full of energy, fast and frenetic riffing and super melodic guitar lines and expressive solos, showcasing a wide array of dynamics, courtesy of NIGHTRAGE main man Mario Iliopoulos.
With a nod to their past, Marios invited former NIGHTRAGE blood brother and long time friend, Gus G (Firewind/Ozzy Osbourne) to lend his incredible guitar skills to ‘When Gold Turns To Rust’, another huge NIGHTRAGE anthem.
The production from recording-guru Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, Inflames, Dimmu Borgir, Devin Townsend, Evergrey, Soilwork) and George Nerantzis from Dug Out Productions Studios in Uppsala.
