Swedish/Greek melodic death metal outfit NIGHTRAGE check in with the following update:

"As you know we are currently writing songs for our forthcoming album. It has now been confirmed that these songs will be recorded, produced, and mixed by our old friend Fredrik Nordström at Studio Fredman.

"We are more than happy to work with Fredrik again, the man that helped us so much on the first two albums Sweet Vengeance and Descent into chaos. We feel that his help will be the return to form we've been searching for. We are coming back to the guy with the magical sound, and we can´t wait to start recording and later share this music with you our fans.

"The studio has moved once again very close to the downtown in Gothenburg. We will enter the studio in February 23rd and we won’t leave until March 13th! That’s a lot of time for Antony to eat a lot of Turkish Pizza!!!!! Marios will cook his nice Greek dishes, Olof will do his laundry, Anders and Jo will fight for who is recording first!

"Also we can let you know that another brother of ours Gus G will be making a guest appearance on the new album as well. So expect some crazy three way soloing from the Nightrage guitar team! Lots of crazy riffs and ethereal melodies done the Nightrage way

"The new album Wearing A Martyr's Crown will be released from Lifeforce records in June 2009."

Hopefully they can make a more diverse album like Sweet Vengeance because A New Disease Is Born was a little stale after a while.

I liked ANDIB quite a bit (and reviewed it here). It was my introduction to the band though, so I can't really compare it to any of their other stuff.

I had Sweet Vengeance, but gave up on them after Tomas Lindberg left. Then I'll be honest, I bought the album after reading your write up on it. Scathing is just an awesome song for me. Probably the best part was "Waves breaking with a ROAR." Awesome lyrical passage. Also, Gus G was with the band for ANDIB, so I thought his work was a nice addition compared to Sweet Vengeance. You can definitely tell his influence on that album vs prior efforts. In addition, I really dug Jimmy's vocals, but he was either booted, or left after the album.
With that said, it seemed like some of the songs ran together for me. I have a 45 min drive to work, so I go through cd's fast, and I felt like I grew out of this way too fast.

I should mention that I found Sweet Vengeance to be guilty of a fast start and was unable to maintain that effort throughout the whole album. There are some songs that I thought really brought down the album, but was definitely more varied than ANDIB.

Hopefully a consistent lineup will help them improve with each effort. Overall, I always enjoy their stuff.

I'm not saying I didn't like ANDIB, I just liked Sweet Vengeance a lot more. In my opinion, Tomas Lindberg is one of the greatest vocalists out there (At The Gates, anyone?). I just couldn't get into their music as much after he left the band.

I know what you mean, Necropolis (about the long commute). My commute is about 35 minutes, so I have the same problem... I buy new CDs constantly so I have something new and fresh to listen to. Also, I didn't realize you're from Iowa, too! More and more of us Iowans seem to be popping up on this site.

This is long so bear with me.

TOG: Couldn't agree more with you about Lindberg, I just wish he would stay with a band for a little while.

It is nice to be able to listen to music in the morning, and really jam out, but at the same time, it sucks because I go through cd's like crazy. I have resorted to finding free stuff to donwload at work so I can listen to that on the way home.

If you like Gothenburg style check out Dawnoftears.com. You can download their free cd, which to be honest is really sweet. They are a spanish band, sing in english, and the guitar playing is awesome. That should be good for a round trip or two.

I just picked up Virus from Hypocrisy which was a decent listen, but I am already out of that and moving to Raintime - "Flies & Lies"

I moved here from Chicago a year ago. I went to the U of Iowa, and am getting my MBA from there as well. This state has been good to me. Good to see there are more of us out there. Now we just need to pool our resources and get some bands to some decent venues. Iowa City gets a few.

Do you guys have any metal radio or record stores? I have nothing, so I resort to iTunes and this website. Its my lifeline.

As far as the metal radio or record stores go, not really. You just gotta keep your eyes open. Check out blackmetalradio(dot)com. They have some pretty awesome tracks on there and that's how I find out about some new bands now and then.

I'll have to check out Dawn of Tears. Sounds pretty cool.
