We are delighted to welcome the amazing Melo-death group Nightrage to Metal Gates Festival family!
Nightrage is back again with their eighth album ”Wolf To Man”. A furious mare ridden yet mesmerizing melodic musical journey, telling a story that guides us all the way to the inevitable demise of mankind. A delicate and well-balanced blend between brutality and melody. An intricate mix of furious thrashing riffs, airy instrumentals and hooking choruses to bang your fists to.
All this and still true to the melodic death metal path they set so many years ago.
The creative power trinity of Marios, Ronnie and Magnus started this conceptional dive into the darkest parts of humanity on the previous album and is now on “Wolf to Man” taking it to the next level.
This time the majority of the album recordings were made by the band themselves in their own studio. That way being able to put more effort than ever before into the guitar works, vocals and the overall concept of the album. And what a winning concept that was. And as that was not enough.
The sound of this disaster-piece is both crisp and brutal. Perfectly enhancing every aspect of this soundtrack to our extinction.
Now armed with savage thrashing songs like “By Darkness Drawn” and heavy groovy rockers like “The Damned” or the brutal title track leaving no ears unharmed, Nightrage is once again ready to take on the world.
This time reinforced with new blood in the ranks. Francisco Escalona – Bass and Dino George Stamoglou – Drums, former trusted touring musicians for the band that now earned their place as solid members alongside Marios, Magnus and Ronnie. A welcome addition that makes the NR family stronger than ever.
