Nightrage Gives New Album Track-By-Track

Marios and Antony of Nightrage have checked in with the a track-by-track breakdown of the band's new album "Insidious." You can check out Metalunderground.com's review here, or read the band's description below:

"So Far Away: This would be part one of three instrumental tracks for the album. Short and to the point. Reminds me of a triumphant funeral dirge. Marios' trademark guitar melodies all over the place on this one.

"Delirium of The Fallen: This is a bit different for the band as an opening song. We have always in the past had the typical 'blast beat' type song open the album. We tried to go in a different direction here. This song kind of has it all. Crazy solos from Marios and Olof, an emotional vocal section by Apollo from Firewind, and a very catchy chorus.

"Insidious: This is for me the best song I've ever done. Not only is it heavy as hell, but Tomas Lindberg recorded and sang vocal melodies and lyrics I wrote. A true honor and a great friend to the band. The song as a whole never stops destroying everything in its path.

"Wrapped In Deceitful Dreams: Another catchy chorus type song. Gus G shreds along with Marios on this one. Tom from Evergrey laid down a clean section for this one. The original way was just a spoken word from me. Marios then had an amazing idea in the studio for Tom to take the lyrics and basically freestyle. It took the man five minutes to lay down these amazing vocals! The one thing I wanted as a singer to change on this record were the clean vocals. I had done my thing on wearing a Martyr's Crown, and this time I felt the need of a new flavor.

"Hate Turns Black: This is one of the first songs we wrote for this record. To me this song takes you on a great ride. Very old school Gothenburg feel in the pre chorus and a traditional metal feel on the rest. This is Nightrage to the bone. More...

Nightrage Posts Second Part Of Track Commentary

On September 26th (and a day later in the U.S.) Nightrage will release the band's fifth album “Insidious.” Nightrage guitarist and mastermind Marios Iliopoulos has now posted the second part of the album's track-by-track breakdown, which can be found below. Head over here to check out the first part of the track commentary.

“Sham Piety” - “Sham is actually the second song that Antony and I composed along with Olof. It’s a bit different and has an eerie feeling over all. One of the riffs comes from the first times of Nightrage, and it fit very well with the rest of this song. We blended some nice acoustic passages with brutal vocals, and also Tomas Lindberg makes a cool guest vocal appearance.”

“Cloaked In Wolf Skin” – “This one hits you like a roller coaster! It’s pure thrash with some death metal styles of riffing. Fast and straight forward. We wanted to create a very live fast song with cool guitar harmonies. The verse riff is totally old bay area thrash, and Jo’s drumming made this amazing. The chorus melodies help keep a good pace and the balance between melody and aggression.”

“This world is coming to an end” – “Very mid tempo kind of song with a fast verse and an emotional chorus. We had the luxury to have here again two amazing singers doing their thing. Apollo and Tomas make the last chorus together, and it is a great finale for the song.”

“Utmost end of pain” – “Very sad sounding guitar melodies at the beginning of the song, it leads into a fast and melodic verse. It’s a very different song for us again. Lots of heavy riffs and pounding drums. The chorus comes off very melodic and blends well with the overall melodic touch. Nice solos from Olof and myself with some cool chord progressions. I love how the vocals give you that strange feeling of desperation and anger, and at the same time, gives some glimpse of hope.”

Nightrage is heading out for the “Frets Of Fury” North America tour with partners in crime Firewind, Arsis, and White Wizzard. Dates are as follows: More...

Neverborne Reveals New Album Details

London-based melodic death metallers Neverborne have set "Self Destruct Syndrome" as the title to their forthcoming debut full length album, tentatively due out December 2011.

The CD features guest appearances by Henrik Danhage (DEATHDESTRUCTION, ex-EVERGREY) and Antony Hämäläinen (NIGHTRAGE) and was recorded at Thin Ice Studios in Surrey England late 2010.

Commented the band: "We decided to re-enter Thin Ice Studios and to again enlist Karl Groom (HAMMERFALL, DRAGONFORCE) to produce the new album. We were really impressed with the work he did for us on our 2009 EP and the atmosphere and environment there is awesome. It allowed us to be relaxed, creative and make the best possible recordings. We returned there earlier this year to finalise the mixes."

Neverborne had the pleasure as well to work with Henrik Udd (ARCH ENEMY, DARK TRANQUILLITY) at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg Sweden to complete the final masters. "In Am My Own," a limited edition bonus track from those sessions is now available for streaming on the band's Facebook page, while an album track "Embers To Ashes" can be found on the band's official MySpace page.

Neverborne also announced that the band is now endorsed by Mayones Guitars and Basses. Brand new custom instruments were manufactured and supplied to Stuart Manicom, Jacques Fourie and Sharne Manicom as part of their full band endorsement.

The "Self Destruct Syndrome" cover art was created by Johan H Liebenberg, responsible for the design of the band's previous EP.

Here is the "Self Destruct Syndrome" track listing:

1. Mechanical Ruin (w/Antony Hämäläinen)
2. Forget To Live
3. Black Roses
4. Beneath The Scars
5. With Nothing Left
6. Interlude
7. Embers To Ashes
8. The Enemy That We Keep (w/ Henrik Danhage)
9. Nature Of Destruction
10. My Confession
