On September 26th (and a day later in the U.S.) Nightrage is going to release the band's fifth album "Insidious," and the group recently posted the title track online. Vocalist Antony Hämäläinen has now checked in with the first in a series of track-by-track descriptions. You can check out the first segment below.

"So Far Away" – "This would be part one of three instrumental tracks for the album. Short and to the point. Reminds me of a triumphant funeral dirge. Marios' trademark guitar melodies are all over the place on this one."

"Delirium Of The Fallen" – "This is a bit different for the band as an opening song. We have always in the past had the typical 'blast beat' type song open the album. We tried to go in a different direction here. This song kind of has it all. Crazy solos from Marios and Olof, an emotional vocal section by Apollo from Firewind, and a very catchy chorus."

"Insidious" – "This is for me the best song I've ever done. Not only is it heavy as hell, but Tomas Lindberg recorded and sang vocal melodies and lyrics I wrote. A true honor and a great friend to the band. The song as a whole never stops destroying everything in it's path."

"Wrapped In Deceiftful Dreams" – "Another catchy chorus type song. Gus G shreds along with Marios on this one. Tom from Everygrey laid down a clean section for this one. The original way was just a spoken word from me. Marios then had an amazing idea in the studio for Tom to take the lyrics and basically freestyle. It took the man five minutes to lay down these amazing vocals! The one thing I wanted as a singer to change on this record were the clean vocals. I had done my thing on Wearing A Martyr's Crown, and this time I felt the need of a new flavor."

"Hate Turns Black" - "This is one of the first songs we wrote for this record. To me this song takes you on a great ride. Very old school Gothenburg feel in the pre chorus and a traditional metal feel on the rest. This is Nightrage to the bone"

Part II of the track-by-track commentary is set to follow in the coming days with mastermind Marios Iliopoulos. Check back soon for details.
