Nocturnal Rites: First Two Albums To Be Re-Released

In celebration of NOCTURNAL RITES' 10th Anniversary the band's label, Century Media, will be releasing a double CD set containing their first two albums.

Both albums have been out of print for a long time and will be released as a compilation entitled "Lost In Time: The Early Years Of Nocturnal Rites". It will be released on February 21st, 2005. The debut album, "In A Time Of Blood And Fire", was released in 1995 on Megarock Records but was only available in small quantities. Two years later they released their second opus, "Tales Of Mystery And Imagination", in Japan. It was re-released in the rest of the world with different cover artwork on Century Media a year later.

"Lost In Time" will feature some rare bonus tracks and special re-recordings with their current vocalist Jonny Lindqvist, who replaced old singer Anders Zackrisson on their fourth album Afterlife in 2000. The booklet features liner notes from bass player Nils Eriksson, along with the original cover artworks and lyrics.

As an aside, the band has just finished their second video, 'Against The World', from their highly acclaimed sixth album, "New World Messiah".
