Night In Gales Unveil Details Of Upcoming CD

After a couple of eventful years, Night In Gales finally return with a new album. Together with returning vocalist Christian Müller who appeared on their early works “Sylphlike” (1995) and “Razor” (1996), the melodic death metal five-piece returns to its roots and experiences a process of rejuvenation. “The Last Sunsets“ will be released on February 23rd via Apostasy Records. Stay tuned for more information.

The band is supported by three guest vocalists: Mark Grewe (ex-Morgoth, Insidious Disease), Christian Mertens (Dark Millennium), und Martin Matzak (ex-Torchure). The mix and the master was done by a true scene-icon. Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity, ex-Bloodbath, a.o.) created the perfect sound for the twelve songs which shifts between old-school and timeless. Furthermore, Costin Chioreanu’s artwork (At The Gates, Arch Enemy, Carach Angren…) with its strong symbolic power fits perfect as a visual addition to the music.
