NIGHTFALL Shares New Live Performance Video

Greek metal masters  NIGHTFALL  have shared a brand new performance video for the song "Ishtar (Celebrate your Beauty)," which was recently performed live at the Sierra Studio's in Athens (GR). The track is taken from the band's 1995 release, 'Athenian Echoes.' The record will be reissued by Season of Mist in the future. The video can now be seen via the official Season of Mist  Youtube  channel at  THIS LOCATION .

Vocalist Efthimis comments on the video: " We are crushingly excited by the fact we are here playing these old classics again. We have spent a hell of a time in the studio to prepare ourselves to be ready to offer nothing less but the absolute best to all of you! We sincerely hope you will enjoy every single moment in this performance and support our Nightfall cult.  More visual and audio samples will follow. This is a song about Ishtar, Queen of Heaven, Inanna, Star of Venus, Goddess of Sex, Goddess of War, Goddess of Justice and Power; This is a song about thee, sung by the almighty adorers of your beauty, the Athenian devotees of thy name. "

Moreover,  NIGHTFALL  will release a brand new album early 2021 via Season of Mist, making it the band's debut to the label.

It has been seven long years since the world was last blessed with new music from the melodic blackened death metal stalwarts of  NIGHTFALL . While the band has been absent from the scene since the release of 2013’s Cassiopeia, their legacy has not been forgotten. Comprising the holy trinity of Greek metal – along with ROTTING CHRIST and SEPTICFLESH –  NIGHTFALL  was the first extreme act in the country to sign an international deal, introducing the world to the burgeoning Mediterranean scene in the early 90s. Now, the band is plotting a triumphant return.

During the first decade of  NIGHTFALL ’s lifespan, the band headlined stages across Europe. Thereafter, went on to dominate international festivals such as Brutal Assault, Sonisphere, and Wacken, the latter of which the band solidified their legacy as the first ever Greek band to earn an envied spot at the renowned festival. The band eventually made the decision to switch to a studio act before they went completely silent. When reflecting upon the sudden disappearance after a steady rise from the underground, vocalist and founding member Efthimis Karadimas explained that it was due to an all too familiar beast – depression. “It's because of depression that kicked in as early as mid-00s. I can write for hours and get into details about stuff gone wrong or mistreated situations, but the basis of all discouragement to move on has been depression and the effort required to get over it.” Despite the dark days, Karadimas did not abandon music entirely, moving on to form THE SLAYERKING, a gothic doom metal band that has released two agonizing full-length records between 2016-2019.

Alas, the abrupt departure of the band was not the final “goodbye” as  NIGHTFALL  has been reinvigorated with a new lineup and coveted deal with Season of Mist. Karadimas has reunited with original  NIGHTFALL  guitarist Mike Galiatsos, who helped define the band’s sound during the early years. With the addition of drummer and producer Fotis Benardo (ex-SEPTICFLESH) as well as guitarist Kostas Kyriakopoulos (THE SLAYERKING), the band is finally ready to release the tenth studio album. In addition to the long-awaited new music, Season of Mist will also be re-issuing the band’s original albums that were produced by Holy Records back in the 90s. This is not the only news the band has to share as  NIGHTFALL  has also vowed to finally perform again. “We are gonna play these live, including stuff never played live before,” says Karadimas.
