Rockshots Records and Nightland are pleased to announce the release of the new single ‘Astralize’. The lyric video can be streamed below.
After the re-release of their first full length album called “Obsession” in a DIGIPACK Version and the following Fleshgod Apocalypse and Carach Angren European TOUR in JANUARY 2017 the symphonic death metal band Nightland returns with the extreme, epic and orchestral aggression of ‘Astralize’!
Nightland was formed in 2007, inspired by European Viking/Folk Metal bands. Through the years the sound of the band was influenced by symphonic music and Death Metal, combining scream and growl voices to epic and powerful choirs. In 2011 Nightland released their first EP “Knights Of The Dark Empire”, which had a great success among the audience, expecially for its release party in Bologna (31st October 2011) in which they used for the first time scenographic elements. Back in studio, Nightland recorded their second EP named “In Solemn Rise”, that will be released in December 2012.
“Obsession” represents a new beginning for the band, and it’s a new big challenge because the quartet changed their sound: the folk/power elements of their previous EP “In Solemn Rise” have been abandoned and now their songwriting is full of aggressive riffs and grandiose orchestrations inspired by Symphonic / Melodic Death Metal.
It sounds dark, dramatic, sometimes unearthly with majestic musical digressions. The musical concept behind “Obession” is a deep romance concerning the instability of the human mind derived from fears, obsessions and paranoia. The album has been recorded by Brendan Paolini, mixed and mastered by Simone Mularoni at Domination Studios).
A Deluxe Version of “Obsession” has been released in January 2017, when Nightland performed as supported act during Fleshgod Apocalypse and Carach Angren European Tour. In november 2017 Nightland released their new single ‘Astralize’ only available in digital format.
