Swedish/Greek melodic death metal outfit NIGHTRAGE have inked a deal with Lifeforce Records.
Commented Lifeforce Records president Stefan Luedicke: "I'm very happy about the signing of NIGHTRAGE, a band I've been a fan of since their first release, 'Sweet Vengeance', on Century Media, but I'm sure their Lifeforce Records debut will easily kill their previous releases."
Marios Ilipoulos, NIGHTRAGE guitarist/songwriter, said: "We are proud about the signing with Lifeforce Records, this is really exciting for us and we feel that we will continue deliver our craft through a really nice partner like Lifeforce Records, who are into the music we are doing and together we can achieve really great things."
NIGHTRAGE was originally formed in Greece back in the year 2000 by Iliopoulos (formerly of EXHUMATION, who released three high-quality death metal albums, all produced in Sweden) and his friend Gus G. (DREAM EVIL, FIREWIND, MYSTIC PROPHECY). NIGHTRAGE released two albums on Century Media Records, "Sweet Vengeance" (2003) and "Descent Into Chaos" (2005), before they parted ways with vocalist Tomas Lindberg (AT THE GATES, DISFEAR, THE CROWN) and Jimmie Strimell joined the band on vocal duties.
NIGHTRAGE will record their as-yet-untitled Lifeforce Records debut later this year at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden for early 2007 release.
