Nightrage have revealed the following statement about their upcoming 5th album entitled Insidious, which will be released on September 26th in Europe and a day later in North America.
"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.
"We then went to Studio Fredman located in Gothenburg Sweden for the mix and master. Our longtime producer Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd worked long and hard to make the best out of what we gave them. We have recorded sixteen songs overall, and as we promised before our guest players actually need no introduction.

These guys make such badass music by themselves, I don't see why they would have so many guests an album. O well I'm sure it will be good anyway.
I work with a lot of band. The guests are a nice way to promote new talent off of the back of established talent. A lot of the time it's an excuse to help get new people heard. Sometimes band members can't make it on the day of recording to for one reason or another.
