Today, Swedish melodic death metal act Nightrage has teamed up with Metal Underground.com to unleash the new single "Affliction." The song is lifted from the band's upcoming full length "The Venomous," which will be issued via Despotz Records on March 31st. Pre-orders can be made at this location.

"Affliction" sees the band at it's hardest hitting and most melodic in a fifteen year history. The band commented: "'Affliction' has depth and character and is 100% Nightrage. We believe it has the potential to become a fan favourite. With 'Affliction' we wanted to express a more melodic and diverse side to our song writing, without losing the heaviness that Nightrage is well known for. The concept behind the track 'Affliction' is focused on mankind's endless search to find a meaning to our empty lives. Lives that we feel we can not control, and therefore we seek to find a greater purpose to our existence."

"The Venomous" is a relentless tale of extinction, told with as much 'venomous' aggression as there are intriguing and mesmerizing melodies. Memorable hooks and some of the catchiest choruses that metal has seen in decades does nothing to compromise the brutality and honesty that Nightrage is known for. The music is catchy and extreme. Lyrically, the album deals with the failure of mankind and how we as human beings are racing towards our own extinction.

The track listing for "The Venomous" is:

1. The Venomous
2. Metamorphosis/Day Of Wrath
3. In Abhorrence
4. Affliction
5. Catharsis
6. Bemoan
7. The Blood
8. From Ashes Into Stone
