The Swedish melodic death metal masters Nightrage have returned with a new and dynamic yet devastating offering, "Descent Into Chaos," that is sure to help propel them into the genre’s elite status. With a more dedicated lineup intact, the group worked closer together to create a more focused and intense album sure to please the old-school death metal fans while also catching the attention of an entire new audience.

The main songwriters, Marios Iliopoulos (guitars) and ex-At The Gates vocalist Tomas Lindberg (Lock Up, The Great Deceiver, Disfear, ex-The Crown), prove that there is no limitation to their abilities and clearly have raised the bar for their peers a bit higher with this release.

Iliopoulos checks in with his thoughts on the new album and how the band has progressed:

I feel that with the new album we managed to capture all the right elements that categorize the Nightrage sound, the really intense rhythm guitars mixed with the smooth 80's lead guitar work and the super tight drums along with the sheer intensity from Tomas Lindberg vocals. He did an awesome job on the vocals, which in contrast with the music make the album sound even heavier.

The new album has a rawer sound, a more in your face kind of production and there are less clean vocals. We tried to be more aggressive and at the same time not loose the melodic approach of the band. Patrik J. Sten handled the whole production and mixing of the album and as a result the material is more brutal and in your face. I think that on this album we are more focused and we tried to write simpler songs in order to have heavier and stronger results.
