The creative power trinity of guitarist / founder Marios Iliopoulos, vocalist Ronnie Nyman and second guitarist, Magnus Soderman started the conceptual dive into the darkest parts of humanity on their previous album ‘Venomous’, and with Wolf To Man the band takes the listeners to the next chapter and beyond.
Armed with savage thrashing songs like “By Darkness Drawn”, heavy groovy rockers like “The Damned” or the brutal title track “Wolf To Man” leaving no ears unharmed, NIGHTRAGE is once again ready to conquer the world, this time reinforced with new blood in the ranks in the form of bassist, Francisco Escalona and drummer, Dino George Stamoglou, former trusted touring musicians for the band that now earned their place as solid members alongside Marios, Magnus and Ronnie. A welcome addition that makes the NIGHTRAGE family stronger than ever.
”Wolf To Man is a very varied album showing all sides of NIGHTRAGE, going from pure brutal “thrashers” with blast beats and furious tempos all the way into more groovy “airy” and open sounding songs. And all this without letting go of our trademark NIGHTRAGE melodies and hooks, still keeping our feet deeply grounded in our love for melodic death metal.” – NIGHTRAGE
This is the sequel to the relentless story of extinction, told with as much aggression as their intriguing and mesmerizing melodies are. Memorable hooks and some of the catchiest choruses that the metal scene has seen in decades, does nothing to compromise the brutality and honesty that NIGHTRAGE is known for.
