Nightrage: North American Tour from Nightrage
North America prepare for descent! Nightrage will be invading North America with God Dethroned, Byzantine, Epoch Of Unlight, Hell Within, Thine Eyes Bleed, and Lilitu. Supporting 2005's Descent Into Chaos, their second recording, the band is now ready to storm North American shores. Incorporating a blistering twin guitar approach, Nightrage has cemented fans by developing and strengthening their melodically vicious sound. Albums, which have featured guitar virtuoso Gus G. (Arch Enemy, Firewind) and unparalleled vocalist Tomas Lindberg (ex-At The Gates, The Great Deceiver), have been lessons in Swedish melodic death metal. However, due to previous commitments, the band will be touring with vocalist Jimmy Strimell (Deathdestruction) and touring guitarist Pierre Lysell (NONE).
Mainman guitarist Marios Iliopoulos sent this message out to fans, 'Hi there Nightrage fans, we are really excited that we are going to be part of this International Extreme Music Festival. This is the first time to play our music in this territory and see our American fans. I think every European band's goal is an American tour. Now we have the chance to achieve this goal, and it is our first tour ever. I don't think I have to tell you how excited we are about this. The line-up and the whole event will be awesome, and Digger International has really been professional promoting this festival. We want to give our best performances there and share the stage with all these great bands. Nightrage has never been a project, and we will soon be out there to show you what we are all about.'
