Having released two critically acclaimed albums on Century Media ("Sweet Vengeance" and "Descent Into Chaos") and the Lifeforce debut "A New Disease Is Born" in 2007, Nightrage takes a fresh and exciting direction while staying truly uncompromising in this new start dubbed "Wearing A Martyr's Crown."

"Wearing A Marty's Crown", recorded at Studio Fredman with accomplished producer Fredrik Nordström (In Flames, Dimmu Borgir, At The Gates), represents a long anticipated return to their roots, which have always been firmly planted in the Gothenburg Death Metal soil.

"Wearing A Martyr's Crown" finds Nightrage more mature than ever, but present is also a distinct will for experimentation and fresh ideas - though always inside the boundaries of what made the Nightrage name from the beginning; sheer brutality, swirling and soaring melodies and acoustic guitar work to evoke scenes and emotions of the deepest melancholy. Delving into a multitude of musical and lyrical vistas, this fourth opus from the international Melodic Death Metal martyrs deals with a multi-layered journey into the darkest depths of the human psyche, the futility of human behaviour and the most dimly lit corners of the untold arcane. Expect to have these eleven incantations burn your soul, yet leaving you wanting to come back for more.

To represent all this in a single song we present to you the opener of the new album, "Shed the Blood", exclusively on MySpace.

Who is doing vocals for them now? New Disease had Jimmy Strimmel on vocals, and Gus G for a little bit on guitars. I know both aren't present anymore.

Will be interesting to hear the full cd. I enjoy their stuff to a certain extent before I become bored by it. That could also be the Gus G from the previous record that bored me after a while.

Necropolis -- It's a guy named Antony Hämäläinen. Never heard of him before, and have no idea what he sounds like. I'm sure he's no Lindberg, but I hope he's decent.

From the sound of the new song he's not bad and hard to tell from the previous vocalist, somewhere between him and Mikael Stanne's newer vocal style.

Checked out their webpage, is Marcos really that much older than the rest of the band? He was born in 69, the rest in 80, 81, and 88. Yikes.

I like the new song. Liked the last album, but this new song seems a bit heavier and less screamy metalcorish.
