Sweden's NIGHTINGALE are back in the spotlight with their long overdue 7th studio album. Entitled Retribution, the follow-up to 2007's acclaimed White Darkness will be released via the band's new worldwide label InsideOutMusic on January 27, 2015 in North America.

NIGHTINGALE was established by musical multi-talent and producer Dan Swan÷ (EDGE OF SANITY / WITHERSCAPE) almost 20 years ago and in the good tradition of the band -- which is completed by Dan's brother Dag Swan÷ (guitars, keyboards), Erik Oskarsson (bass) and Tom Bj÷rn (drums) -- the new album once again showcases a fabulous and timeless hybrid of different musical styles. From atmospheric metal to catchy AOR and melodic prog, Retribution offers an amazingly broad variety of moods and always tuneful songwriting skills.

Dan Swan÷, who contributes vocals, guitars and keyboards, commented on Retribution:

"We started putting material together for this album around 2008, but out of all those songs only two made it to the album. I felt that, unless it is the best possible NIGHTINGALE album, where every song on the album easily could replace any song from our previous albums, there was no point in making a new album at all.

During the writing of the WITHERSCAPE debut album, I wrote a lot of stuff that would work better on a NIGHTINGALE album, and before I knew it, I had the skeleton for a lot of potentially awesome NIGHTINGALE songs! It was important that the new material had the vibe of the older albums, yet with a better production and performance.

I am very confident that all the NIGHTINGALE fans will love Retribution since I made sure I felt the same rush inside me when I listened to the tracks that I did upon listening to the finished version of our most famous tracks from the past!"

Here is the album's complete tracklisting:

NIGHTINGALE - Retribution

  • On Stolen Wings"
  • "Lucifer's Lament"
  • "Chasing The Storm Away"
  • "Warriors Of The Dawn"
  • "Forevermore"
  • "Divided I Fall"
  • "The Voyage Of Endurance"
  • "27 (Curse Or Coincidence?)"
  • "The Maze"
  • "Echoes Of A Dream"
NIGHTINGALE's Retribution features artwork courtesy of Travis Smith (OPETH, NEVERMORE, KATATONIA, etc.) and the music should appeal to fans of bands like RUSH, MARILLION, STYX, KANSAS, THE MISSION, QUEENSRYCHE, ENCHANT, THRESHOLD, ARENA or even OPETH and KATATONIA.

More details and first music samples off Retribution will be released next week...
