Reposted from Blabbermouth.net

Greek/Swedish melodic death metallers NIGHTRAGE will release their sixth studio album, “The Puritan”, on April 24 via Despotz Records.

“The Puritan” — described in a press release as “an uncompromising, eerie, dramatic and melodic death metal journey in its purest essence” — welcomes new NIGHTRAGE vocalist Ronnie Nyman to the mix. Nyman joins NIGHTRAGE guitarist and founding member Marios Iliopoulos and bassist Anders Hammer after performing with the band last year on its Japanese and Russian tours.

“The Puritan” was produced by Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, DEVIN TOWNSEND, SOILWORK) and George Nerantzis at Dugout Productions in Uppsala, Sweden.

“The Puritan” track listing:

01. The Puritan
02. With A Blade Of A Knife
03. Desperate Vows
04. Endless Night
05. Foul Vile Life
06. Stare Into Infinity
07. Lone Lake (Instrumental)
08. Son of Sorrow
09. When Gold Turns To Rust
10. Fathomless
11. Kiss Of A Sycophant

The song “Desperate Vows” can be streamed using the SoundCloud widget below. Also available is the music video for the CD’s first single, “Kiss Of A Sycophant”.

Says Marios Iliopoulos: “‘Kiss Of A Sycophant’ is traditional NIGHTRAGE melodic death metal. We feel that with this album we manage to combine the death metal ferocity with ethereal melodies and great hooks all in one nice metal amalgam.”

NIGHTRAGE was founded in 2000 in Greece by Marios Iliopoulos and his close friend, Gus G., who departed after the band’s second album, “Descent Into Chaos”.

During the band’s 14-year career, NIGHTRAGE has released five studio albums and toured across Europe, the U.S., Canada and Asia while employing various musicians from AT THE GATES, EVERGREY, DARK TRANQUILLITY, AMARANTHE and FIREWIND.

NIGHTRAGE signed a record/publishing deal with Swedish music company Despotz in summer 2014 before entering the studio with Daniel Bergstrand and George Nerantzis.

“Today we are proud to announce that we have signed an album deal with Despotz Records,” commented Iliopoulos. “We are super excited to work with such a dedicated bunch of people.”

“Dreams can really come true; NIGHTRAGE is a living proof of that,” added Ömer Akay, Despotz Records co-founder and partner. “I’m honored to be working with Marios and NIGHTRAGE; we truly have the same background and visions to take the band to the mainstream.”
