Night In Gales vocalist calls it quits

Posted by Fireball13 on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at 10:04 AM (PST)

German melodic death metal band Night In Gales vocalist Björn Gooßes has announced that he will be leaving the band. He commented on his departure in a statement on October 12th:

“1996-2012. 16 years Night In Gales, during which I have experienced some of the most intense moments as a musician – positive as well as negative ones. Well, Heavy Metal ain´t no picnic. I don´t wanna miss these memories whatsoever and I´ll always be proud of what we have done as a band!

After four albums, some great and memorable tours, many festivals and numerous shows across all Europe as well as a crazy trip to Japan, there was more or less silence for quite a while. But ten years after „Necrodynamic“ we didn´t only give a sign life with our fifth record „Five Scars“, we rather returned with a bang! Yet this album is my swansong for Night In Gales. Since the release of „Five Scars“ we earned overwhelming response on the album and played some awesome shows. I will gratefully treasure the memory of my very last two shows with Night In Gales, which took place in Romania last weekend – but still time has come for me to close this chapter. With „Five Scars“ things have come full circle for me.

I want to thank Jens, Tobbe, Frank and Adriano, our former drummer Christian and interim drummer Hartmut as well as all supporters, partners and friends of Night In Gales for pulling their weight on making this band become part of my DNA.

1996-2012. 16 years Night In Gales. I´ll miss you, but it´s time to move on. Cheers!“

Cover Art Battle: Dead and Dying Edition

Posted by jessepac on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 at 11:29 AM (PST)

How many of you Metal Rioters out there have gone to your local record store of choice and picked up a new metal album solely based on the art that graces its cover? Unfortunately, with the growth of iTunes and Pandora it seems easier and easier to overlook album cover art in general, but in the world of Heavy Metal we’re here to remind you that the art form is still alive and well!

Use the part of your skull you haven’t destroyed yet and VOTE RIGHT NOW!!!

Melodic death metal pioneers Night In Gales have returned to the scene after almost a decade long hiatus, announcing that they have inked a deal with Lifeforce Records to release a brand new album titled “Five Scars” on November 7 in Europe and November 8 in North America.

The hiatus came to a sudden end after a “comeback” show at a local festival and a re-release of the band’s catalogue by Metal Mind Productions.

Jens Basten from Night In Gales had this to say about signing with Lifeforce Records:

“We´re back, fuck yeah! 17 years after initially cooking our very own brew of German melodic death metal, there´s a new Night In Gales album coming your way!”
