Nocturnal Rites

Genre: ,

History – a long and eventful career which started with the band’s foundation in the early ’90s, saw them release their debut ‘In A Time Of Blood And Fire’ in 1995 and has generated nine studio albums (including ‘Phoenix’) now. Since vocalist Jonny Lindkvist joined the band for the 2000 release ‘Afterlife’, the band had found its identity and really became a household name in metal circles. With albums such as ‘Shadowland’, ‘New World Messiah’ and ‘Grand Illusion’, the band further built an excellent reputation and ever-growing worldwide fan base before the release of ‘The 8th Sin’ unfortunately marked the band’s latest piece of work for a full decade. So September 29th can’t come quickly enough. Prepare for a forceful return! The “Phoenix” will rise from the ashes. The band states: “We can’t wait to share this new album with everyone. It’s been long overdue. Needless to say, it feels great to finally be back.”

Once a metal head, always a metalhead. My parents thought it would only be a period, but they were wrong. I quit to explain the beauty of metal music to others that are not into metal, because it is something you can't tell in words... It is like explaining to a teetotaller why a cold beer is so nice on a hot day... I started with bands like Accept, Metal Church, Iron Maiden and Metallica in the eighties and I think I will still listen to them when I'm stone deaf and old...
