In preparation for the tour, NIGHTBRINGER will headline an exclusive US performance on March 1st at the Hi-Dive in Denver, Colorado.
Regarding the tour, the band issued the following statement: "We are prepared to shine the Lantern of Negation upon European soil and illumine hearts with the paradoxical light of our Lord."
NIGHTBRINGER recently finished recording a new album. Scheduled to be released this year, the follow up to 2011’s 'Hierophany of the Open Grave' was recorded and mixed at Flatline Audio Studios by Dave Otero (CEPHALIC CARNAGE, CATTLE DECAPITATION, COBALT).
'Hierophany of the Open Grave' is available in several formats on Season of Mist’s e-shop and streaming on YouTube. NIGHTBRINGER recently announced the offering of a track for free download off the record, titled "Lucifer Trismegistus" at their new Bandcamp page.
Established in 1999, NIGHTBRINGER was created as a conduit for the contemplations on the mysteries of death as it is understood in the tradition of the art magical. The band have an uncompromising, orthodox approach to black metal. 2011's 'Hierophany of the Open Grave' has further solidified the band's signature sound: characterized by cacophonous walls of distortion, haunting melodies, and occult lyrics revering the unholy. NIGHTBRINGER has made select rare appearances in the United States and Europe as part of various metal festivals; these include Maryland Deathfest, Under the Black Sun Festival, and the cult Gathering of the Shadows.
