Nighon has now released their second album “The Somme” through Inverse Records. Nighon was formed in 2008, in Pietarsaari, Finland. The sound is a blend of extreme metal and symphonic movie music, that appeals to a wide group of people, ranging from fans of Dimmu Borgir, Rammstein, all the way to Amaranthe. ”This is absolutely our most ambitious work thus far and a giant leap forward!”, says guitarist and composer Björn Johansson.

Nighon released its first album 'Cor Oblivionis' in 2014 on Univocal Music, and their first music video 'Ex Tenebris Lux' the same year. The band has performed with bands like myGRAIN, Magenta Harvest, Finntroll, Kill The Kong and Arkentype. Nighon will perform at the legendary Finnish metal festival Nummirock this summer.

 

The album is a concept album with stories from World War I, World War II and the similarities between those and the crises we see today in our world. The album is supposed to be heard in it’s entirety non-stop. ”The album has been well received by critics all around the world and people seem to really like our sound…”, says lead guitarist Michael Mikander.

 

The brand new single and music video “The Greatest of Catastrophes” is a blend of the outbreak of World War I and the Ukraine crisis. The music video was filmed on the Gulf of Bothnia and at a secret undisclosed military facility by Kasper Dalkarl, David Viklund and Stephanie Blomqvist.

 

The album was recorded at Soundspiral Audio by Juho Räihä (Before The Dawn, Wolfheart, Swallow The Sun) and Nighon's studio Regiment XIII. The production of the album began 2014 and was finished summer 2016. It is produced by Nighon and Mathias Lillmåns (Finntroll, Magenta Harvest). ”This album has the best guitar sound I've ever produced, and the album is a mastodon of a production!” says Mathias Lillmåns. The album was mixed and mastered by Fredrik Nordström (Dimmu Borgir, Opeth, Soilwork etc.) and Henrik Udd, at the legendary Studio Fredman in Gothenburg Sweden.
