Nightrage Posts New Music Video Online

Nightrage has released a music video for the single, "The Damned", featured on the forthcoming album, "Wolf To Man," where the band invites us to a mesmerizing melodic musical journey, telling the truthful story that guides us all the way to the inevitable demise of mankind. The music delivers a delicate and well-balanced blend between brutality and melody, as well as an intricate mix of thrashing riffs and hook filled choruses.

"The Damned" is out now on iTunes and Spotify via Despotz Records. Watch the new video below.

The band says, "Humans have given up on living for real and now just live for the next cheap thrill not giving a shit how to make it to the next day. It's more important to have many “likes” on social media than it is to take care of or interact with the ones living around you. We and our bodies are just empty shells now losing the last of our damned souls to the cheap thrill of fake life online. It's our own fault. Hate us and blame us. We are the damned!"

This relentless story of extinction is told with as much aggression as it is with 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. More...

Nightrage Posts New Single Online

Greek/Swedish extreme metal band Nightrage has posted their new single, "By Darkness Drawn" online for streaming. You can check it out below. Speaking about the song, the band stated:

"With ‘By Darkness Drawn’ we wanted to combine our trademark NR guitar melodies with a straightforward thrash metal drive clashing straight into groovy yet hooking chorus. A straightforward Nightrage song so to say. And that is what we think “By Darkness Drawn” is! A kick ass thrasher!

"The lyrics for this song pretty much sums up the concept and theme of the album and it handles the fact we are all doomed and we know it. Unable to learn from our mistakes we are all now standing at the edge of our abyss, paralyzed by fear of our inevitable leap towards our own extinction. The lyrics on the previous album was all about our journey towards our end. This song is about being there right now, and just having to accept that as a fact!" More...

Nightrage Premieres New Single "Affliction"

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."

Nightrage Premieres New Lyric Video

Greek/Swedish melodic death metal band, Nightrage, has announced an April 24th, 2015 release date for its sixth studio album, "The Puritan," due out on Despotz Records.

Album number six was produced by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, Devin Townsend, Soilwork) and George Nerantzis at Dugout Productions in Uppsala, Sweden.

Today we're stoked to premiere a lyric video for the title track, which can be found below. Guitarist/founder Marios Iliopoulos also had this to say about the song:

“’The Puritan’ is one of the first songs that we wrote for the album. The title and the concept is symbolic, showcasing our hunger and relentless passion for our music. It’s about not giving up and clashing with every kind of obstacle, but continuing no matter what to fight for our ideals, honoring the music that we love to play.

“Musically, it has this Thin Lizzy/Iron Maiden twin guitar attack on the riffs, along with the signature Nightrage harmonies. We felt this track was the right opening song for the new album, since it´s fast, energetic and also has some really big vocal hooks from Ronnie on the chorus. You get the idea of the feeling for the whole album by listening to the song; this idea of what melodic death metal means to us is really represented here. The song is punchy and metal to the bone.

“The great duo at Dug Out Productions, Daniel Bergstrand and George Nerantzis, helped us make the song sound so good, loud and powerful. Ronnie Nyman makes an amazing vocal performance, and we have a great collaboration here. His ideas and vocal melodies are so powerful and really make an amazing contrast with the Nightrage riffs and harmonies.” More...

Nightrage Stares Into Infinity

Greek/Swedish melodic death metal band Nightrage has teamed up with Revolver Magazine to launch a music video for the new track "Stare into Infinity." Check it out below.

The song comes from the band's upcoming sixth studio album, "The Puritan," set to release on April 24th through Despotz Records.

"'Stare into Infinity' is one of my favorite songs on our new album The Puritan," guitarist Marios Iliopoulos told Revolver. "It has all those elements that are Nightrage - heavy riffs, emotional melodies and brutal vocal hooks. The whole arrangement of the song is very simplistic and in your face. The verses are very thrashy with straightforward riffs and pounding drums, creating that feeling of power and metal mayhem. The chorus is where the song really lifts up with those signature Nightrage melodic guitars and big '80s metal riffs played with a thrashy and more modern approach. And Ronnie´s vocals, singing with such a great passion and old school melodic death metal vibes, makes for a really cool contrast on that part.

"Lyrically, it´s a song that has to do with leading you out of dark times, reaching the light at the end of the tunnel and leaving everything that's troubling you behind - searching to find your inner self.

"The production and sound that Daniel Bergstrand and George Neranzis did for the song made all the difference in the world; they really gave the song the needed power and loudness to create such a strong and beautifully loud brutal/melodic sound."

New album "The Puritan" can be pre-ordered online through the Desptoz web-store at this location. More...

Pit Stories: The Mosh Pit Face Off

Tuesday's not just for killer new metal releases, its also when we have musicians from across the world share their favorite Pit Stories from live shows.

This week none other than guitarist Marios Iliopoulos from the Greek melodic death metal outfit Nightrage shared this tale from a Slipknot pit:

As far as I remember the craziest mosh pit that I have seen was at a Slipknot concert in Norway where the singer had to divide the crowd on 2 parts and get them ready to face each other. What comes next was the most insane and brutal, almost brawl mosh pit, that I have experienced to this day. People seemed of course to enjoy it, but at the same time, the sheer aggression of it was amazing. One of the things that always remind us of the power of metal music and the great fun that it can be.

Need a new Nightrage fix in your life? The band's upcoming full-length album "The Puritan" will drop via Despotz Records on April 24th, 2015 and an advance track from the release can be heard below. More...
