Nightrage return with ‘The Puritan’, possibly their strongest release to date. A lot has happened in the world of Nightrage in the four years since they released ‘Insidious’. They signed to a new label (Sweden’s Despotz Records), a new studio home, (Dug Out Productions) and a brand new singer in Ronnie Nyman (from Swedish hardcore/metal band Always War), who has injected a sense of urgency into the lifeblood of Nightrage!. Making ‘The Puritan’ a killer mix of fresh new aggression without turning their back on what’s made Nightrage the band they are today.

”The Puritan” is an uncompromising, dramatic and melodic death metal journey in its purest form. Eleven tracks crammed with brutal riffs, unforgettable hooks and the biggest production on any Nightrage release.

Trends come and go but Nightrage always deliver!

New front man Ronnie Nyman confirmed his right to the position in Nightrage with his over the top stage persona, cool character and amazing vocal skills during the band’s Japanese and Russian tours last year, and brings a new fresh approach to the Nightrage signature sound.

Songs Like The title track: ‘The Puritan’ and ‘Kiss Of A Sycophant’ bring that pure metal kick in the balls that many bands tend to forget about today. Songs full of energy, fast and frenetic riffing and super melodic guitar lines and expressive solos, showcasing a wide array of dynamics, courtesy of Nightrage main man Mario Iliopoulos.

With a nod to their past, Marios invited former Nightrage blood brother and long time friend, Gus G (Firewind/Ozzy Osbourne) to lend his incredible guitar skills to ‘When Gold Turns To Rust’, another huge Nightrage anthem.

The production from recording-guru Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, Inflames, Dimmu Borgir, Devin Townsend, Evergrey, Soilwork) and George Nerantzis from Dug Out Productions Studios in Uppsala, it is truly breathtaking and brings to the fore all the elements that characterize the Nightrage sound.

This is Nightrage, a light that blinds at the path of redemption!

Nightrage is;
Ronnie Nyman – Vocals
Marios Iliopoulos – Guitar      
Anders Hammer – Bass
