NIGHTRAGE To Enter Studio In June

March 9, 2011

Multi-national thrashers NIGHTRAGE have completed work on 15 songs during the pre-production phase for their as-yet-untitled fifth album, which the band plans to start recording in June.

Commented guitarist/mainman Marios Iliopoulos: "This time we have chosen a different approach in the recording process. All drums, bass, and guitars will be recorded at Zero Gravity Studios in Athens, Greece. Some of you might remember, this location was the set for our latest video 'Wearing A Martyr's Crown'.

"On this record we want to break up the monotony of the typical Scandinavian weather/scenery and head to one of the most beautiful countries this band has ever played. So once again, Greece is our destination!

"Antony [Hämäläinen, vocals] will head into Arcane Digital Recording (located in sunny Chandler, Arizona USA) with our good friend Ryan Butler (LANDMINE MARATHON, MISERY INDEX, PHOBIA, EXHUMED) for the vocal recordings. Another first for the band, trying out an American studio will be an interesting change. But for those of you who know Ryan's work, you can expect the result to be old school and punishing.

"Of course, our album would not be complete without the help from our longtime producer Fredrik Nordström (DIMMU BORGIR, OPETH, IN FLAMES, THE HAUNTED, EXHUMATION, FIREWIND),who will drum edit, reamp, mix and master the album in Studio Fredman. We trust our longtime friend Fredrik will do an amazing job once again. He's been stunned by the quality of our new songs and is looking forward to working with us again.

"We also have some very important guest musicians contributing to the album as well."

NIGHTRAGE's new album will be released via Lifeforce Records in Europe and North America (release dates to be revealed soon). Floga Records from Greece will make the effort available on limited-edition vinyl.

"Wearing A Martyr's Crown", the fourth full-length album from NIGHTRAGE, was released in North America on August 4, 2009 via Lifeforce Records. The CD was tracked at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström (DIMMU BORGIR, ARCH ENEMY, IN FLAMES).

NIGHTRAGE in 2007 recruited singer Antony Hämäläinen to replace Jimmie Strimell.
