NIGHTRAGE were originally formed in Greece back in the year 2000 by guitarist and mastermind Marios Iliopoulos (ex-EXHUMATION, who released three high quality death metal albums before, all produced in Sweden) and his friend Gus G. (known for his acclaimed performances with DREAM EVIL as well as FIREWIND and MYSTIC PROPHECY). After some demo productions and several line up try-outs, NIGHTRAGE entered the famous halls of Studio Fredman in the band's new hometown Gothenburg with producer Fredrik Nordström (IN FLAMES, ARCH ENEMY, OPETH, HAMMERFALL, DIMMU BORGIR, etc.) to record their debut album, "Sweet Vengeance", by the wintertime of 2002/2003.
From these promising beginnings, the line-up turned into a notorious one the moment Tomas "Tompa" Lindberg (ex-AT THE GATES, now in THE GREAT DECEIVER and LOCK UP) joined in as vocalist. Meanwhile, talented Frenchman Brice Leclercq took over bass duties, Tom S. Englund (of Sweden's EVERGREY) added some extremely atmospheric clean vocal passages and the stellar drum work was provided by none other than Per M. Jensen (THE HAUNTED).
