NIGHTFALL
ASTRON BLACK AND THE THIRTY TYRANTS
METAL BLADE

Nightfall serves up a multifaceted mix of symphonic black metal containing enough clever compositional twists to keep listeners engaged past the point of guessing the origins each derivation on their 12-track album. This unit juxtaposes Nordic fury and Swedish brutality with touches of dramatic orchestration, striking a middle ground between Celtic Frost, Cradle of Filth and Amon Amarth (“Astromonica/ Saturnian Moon”). Showcasing a strong yet not overpowering use of keyboards while burning through the black metal playbook (“Ambassador of Mass”), Nightfall smoothly switches gears from raging to melodic without losing an ounce of the venom fueling their underlying sense of evil (“I-I”, “Proxima Centauri/ Dead Bodies”).
