"The new Nightrage album is ready! We are extremely happy with the results and we look forward to sharing this music with all of you. Here is the journey thus far:
"We recorded the music at Zero Gravity studios on Athens, Greece with our great friend Terry Nikas at the helm. He did a fantastic job and provided us with an amazing environment and atmosphere to make the best record possible. Antony had the pleasure as well to work on the vocals in a very different setting with Ryan Butler at his Arcane Digital Recording studio in Arizona. Ryan has been assisting us with demo sessions since the last album and it felt very natural for us to try the final product with him.
Greek metallic powerhouse Firewind is extremely excited to announce their first-ever headlining North American tour, dubbed the Frets of Fury. This package (sponsored by ESP Guitars, BlackStar Amps and Guitar World) kicks off on October 9th and features a wide array of metal's elite: Arsis, White Wizzard and Nightrage.
