In 2003, DRACONIAN released their debut album and since then, the Swedish Doom/Goth sextet’s sound has always remained steadfast to its origins. In particular, the powerful vocal growls of Anders Jacobsson, one of the band’s defining and most unique features, along with Heike Langhans’s melodic and atmospheric female vocals. The band delivered six studio albums so far, with which they immediately convince the listener with Beauty and the Beast-esque vocal contrasts, striking accents, and threatening moods.
It has been seven long years since the world was last blessed with new music from the melodic blackened death metal stalwarts of NIGHTFALL. While the band has been absent from the scene since the release of 2013’s Cassiopeia, their legacy has not been forgotten. Comprising the holy trinity of Greek metal – alongwith ROTTING CHRIST and SEPTICFLESH – NIGHTFALL was the first extreme act in the country to sign an international deal, introducing the world to the burgeoning Mediterranean scene in the early 90s. Now, the band is plotting a triumphant return.
