New Album "The Somme" Detailed By Nighon, Video For First Single Issued

Finnish industrial/symphonic metal act Nighon issued a video clip for the new song "The Greatest of Catastrophes," which you can enjoy in the player below. The song is the first single from the band's second studio effort "The Somme," which drops on May 5th via Inverse Records.

Nighon was formed in 2008, in Pietarsaari, Finland. The sound has evolved into an unique blend of symphonic movie music and industrial metal. Nighon released its first record "Cor Oblivionis" in 2014 on Univocal Records. The band has gigged with bands like myGRAIN, Magenta Harvest, Finntroll, Kill The Kong and Arkentype.

"The Somme" was recorded in Soundspiral Audio and Nighon's home studio. It was mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd at Studio Fredman, Gothenburg Sweden.

The album is a conceptual release with stories from World War I, World War II and the similarities between those and the crises we see today in our world. The sound is much more extreme than previous Nighon compositions, widening the contrasts even more than before. The album is supposed to be heard in it’s entirety non-stop. The single “The Greatest of Catastrophes” is a blend of the outbreak of World War I and the Ukraine crisis. The video was filmed during the winter 2016 by Kasper Dalkarl, David Viklund and Stephanie Blomqvist.
