NIGHTRAGE Guitarist Quits

September 20, 2007

Guitarist Constantine of the Swedish/Greek death metal outfit NIGHTRAGE has issued the following statement:

"I would like to inform you that due to personal, artistic and (unfortunately) financial reasons I am in the unfortunate position to leave NIGHTRAGE. I'd like to sincerely thank my bandmate Marios Iliopoulos [guitar] for giving me this wonderful chance to showcase my guitar work — it has led to many wonderful new professional opportunities. Stay tuned for the official announcements from my management in the following months! The NIGHTRAGE show in Spain [Sept. 22 at the Alhama de murcia Festival] will be my last live performance with the band, so I hope to see you all there and have a great time with you guys! Finally, stay tuned for my self-titled instrumental debut CD that is going to be released in late spring 2008!"

NIGHTRAGE's video for the track "Scathing" can be viewed below. The clip was shot in January in Athens, Greece. The song comes off the group's third album, "A New Disease Is Born", which was released in April. The CD was recorded at Hansen studios in Ribe, Denmark with producer Jacob Hansen (RAUNCHY, MERCENARY, FEAR MY THOUGHTS, HEAVEN SHALL BURN).

NIGHTRAGE was originally formed in Greece back in the year 2000 by guitarist Marios Iliopoulos (formerly of EXHUMATION, who released three high-quality death metal albums, all produced in Sweden) and his friend Gus G. (DREAM EVIL, FIREWIND, MYSTIC PROPHECY). NIGHTRAGE released two albums on Century Media Records, "Sweet Vengeance" (2003) and "Descent Into Chaos" (2005),before they parted ways with vocalist Tomas Lindberg (AT THE GATES, DISFEAR, THE CROWN) and Jimmie Strimell joined the band.
