Latest release: "Hierophany of the Open Grave"
Release date: Fri, Aug 19 2011, US Tue, Sep 13 2011
Colorado black metal cult NIGHTBRINGER are offering the track "Lucifer Trismegistus" as a free download at their Bandcamp page. The song is taken from the band's latest full length, 'Hierophany of the Open Grave', which is also streaming in full at the band’s Bandcamp page.
The band is currently writing material for a new full-length, and follow up to 'Hierophany of the Open Grave', to be released under Season of Mist's Underground Activists division. In the interim, they have released two well-received splits, 'The Ruins of Edom' and 'Circumambulations of the Solar Inferno'.
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.
"The sheer scope of sound commanded by these renegade visionaries is rarely paralleled by other bands who fail to live up to the technical supremacy or occult reverie that haunts each NIGHTBRINGER release...Hierophany of the Open Grave’ is NIGHTBRINGER’s crowning achievement." - The Lurker's Path
"One of the true black metal cult legends from the US...” - DOA Magazine
