Night In Gales Unveil Details Of Upcoming CD

After a couple of eventful years, Night In Gales finally return with a new album. Together with returning vocalist Christian Müller who appeared on their early works “Sylphlike” (1995) and “Razor” (1996), the melodic death metal five-piece returns to its roots and experiences a process of rejuvenation. “The Last Sunsets“ will be released on February 23rd via Apostasy Records. Stay tuned for more information.

The band is supported by three guest vocalists: Mark Grewe (ex-Morgoth, Insidious Disease), Christian Mertens (Dark Millennium), und Martin Matzak (ex-Torchure). The mix and the master was done by a true scene-icon. Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity, ex-Bloodbath, a.o.) created the perfect sound for the twelve songs which shifts between old-school and timeless. Furthermore, Costin Chioreanu’s artwork (At The Gates, Arch Enemy, Carach Angren…) with its strong symbolic power fits perfect as a visual addition to the music.

Night In Gales Signs To Apostasy Records

Apostasy Records announced that the label has signed German melodic death metal act Night In Gales. Fans of the early material can expect a proper rejuvenation of the band.

Night In Gales looks back at turbulent times: The first sign of life, 1995’s EP "Sylphlike," was already one of the most successful metal-demos of all time. Therefore, label-powerhouse Nuclear Blast came into the picture, with whom the quintet signed a deal for a couple of albums. They also toured alongside In Flames, Hypocrisy, Children Of Bodom, Death, Dismember and many others and they played numerous festivals like Rockharz, the Wacken Open Air or the Summer Breeze. After some calmer years, the band returned with 2011’s brilliant album "Five Scars." Only one year later, long term vocalist Bjoern Gooßes left the band to concentrate completely on his band The Very End.

Last year, the band announced the addition of original vocalist Christian Mueller who also sang on their initial EP "Sylphlike." He finalized the new album, which marks a distinct step back to the band’s roots. Thus, the songs offer furious melodic twin guitar riffing, driven by technical death metal drumming, topped by a manic frustrated voice that sounds like someone is crucified upside down.

The band comments: "We are happy to confirm that Night In Gales has inked a new worldwide record deal with Germany's finest in melodic death metal: Apostasy Records! It feels good to be back and we are 100% sure to have the full support of Tomasz and his Team, as these guys are true underground-proofed death metal maniacs, who run the label with the necessary passion and idealism. We are proud to be a part of the Apostasy roster among brothers in crime like Ablaze My Sorrow, This Ending, Nailed To Obscurity, Burial Vault, Fragments Of Unbecoming, Damnation Defaced, Sign Of Cain, a.m.o. The new album is ready to release and there will be some exiting news containing more details like album track list, cover artwork, editions a.s.o. really soon, so stay tuned for this! Cheers, NIG anno 2017" More...

Night In Gales Recording Album

There's hasn't been a proper Night In Gales studio album since 2011's "Five Scars," but that's about to change as the band is now recording a new long player! Night In Gales comments:

"As some of you already noticed, we have a new (yet untitled) album on the way! Adriano will enter the studio soon to record the drum tracks.

"To get an impression what you can expect from this next piece of Night In Gales, we now publish a drumcam-video of Adriano performing 'The Spears Within.' It's getting brutal again like in the very early days, hope you like that!

"Former NIG-singer Christian Müller (Sylphlike MCD/MLP 1995, Razor 7" 1996) joined the band again to care for the extra unhuman vocals for this one! We are currently in search for a new label to release the album. Stay tuned for more updates on the development of the album production. Cheers!" More...

Night In Gales Frontman Quits

Germany's Night In Gales has published a press release on the band's official Facebook page. It includes a statement from longtime frontman Björn Goosses:

“1996-2012. 16 years Night In Gales, during which I have experienced some of the most intense moments as a musician - positive as well as negative ones. Well, Heavy Metal ain't no picnic. I don't wanna miss these memories whatsoever and I'll always be proud of what we have done as a band!

"After four albums, some great and memorable tours, many festivals and numerous shows across all Europe as well as a crazy trip to Japan, there was more or less silence for quite a while. But ten years after 'Necrodynamic' [2001] we didn't only give a sign of life with our fifth record 'Five Scars,' (reviewed here) we rather returned with a bang! Yet this album is my swansong for Night In Gales. Since the release of 'Five Scars' we earned overwhelming response on the album and played some awesome shows. I will gratefully treasure the memory of my very last two shows with Night In Gales, which took place in Romania last weekend - but still time has come for me to close this chapter. With 'Five Scars' things have come full circle for me.

"I want to thank Jens, Tobbe, Frank and Adriano, our former drummer Christian and interim drummer Hartmut as well as all supporters, partners and friends of Night In Gales for pulling their weight on making this band become part of my DNA.

"1996-2012. 16 years Night In Gales. I'll miss you, but it's time to move on. Cheers!" More...

"We're pretty much looking forward to the release of 'Five Scars' and whatever may come with that for Night In Gales - but for the moment, listen to 'This Neon Grave' and enjoy a fresh breeze of classic melodic death metal," comments singer Bjoern Goosses.

Dan Swano, who mixed and mastered the new album, also commented: "Working with Night In Gales was pure bliss for me. The material is very strong due to the fact that it's been around for quite some time now, and it feels almost like a 'Best of' album sometimes, because it's so solid all the way through. Working on this album actually ignited a spark in my own writing and I came up with one of the best Death/A.O.R. songs I have ever written, during the mix of this album!! Easily one of the best Melodic Death Metal releases of the year!!"

Night In Gales Signs To Lifeforce Records

Lifeforce Records has checked in with the following announcement about inking a deal with Night In Gales:

"We are very pleased to announce the signing of the German pioneers of melodic death metal, Night In Gales to the Lifeforce Records roster. It has been silent about them far too long!

"Flashback: After Night In Gales' debut EP 'Sylphlike' had hit the scene like a bomb in 1995 (up till now this release remains one of the best selling demos ever!), the first album 'Towards The Twilight' was released in 1997 under the wings of Nuclear Blast Records and NIG toured with bands such as of In Flames, Hypocrisy, Children Of Bodom and Death, before releasing their second album 'Thunderbeast.' Further touring with acts like Dismember or again Children Of Bodom followed, as well as appearances at festivals like Wacken Open Air or Summer Breeze Open Air.

"While the releases this far presented the band with a clearly melo-death rocking groove, their third album 'Nailwork' in 2000 showcased a rather morbid and more progressive side to things and NIG not only toured Europe with Old Man's Child and Krisiun but also visited Japan together with Defleshed.

"The band's upcoming 'Necrodynamic' release in 2001 saw them switching to Massacre Records and also to a more varied and melodic stylistic approach, which after some line up changes also lead to the band taking a break in order to musically re-orientate. In doing so, there was music released by the members of Night In Gales during the zero years in / with acts like Deadsoil, The Very End, Grind Inc. or In Blackest Velvet, yet nothing was to be heard by NIG apart from the self-released 'Ten Years Of Tragedy' EP 2005 (a free download offering, celebrating the group's tenth birthday!).
