Sweden’s NIGHTINGALE are back in the spotlight with their long overdue 7th studio album. Retribution, the follow-up to 2007’s acclaimed White Darkness, is released today in North America via the band’s new worldwide label InsideOutMusic. The album is available as a jewel case CD and digital download. The physical CD offers a special Enhanced feature: the entire album as full dynamic vinyl mix in high-resolution MP3 format.
NIGHTINGALE was established by musical multi-talent and producer Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity / Witherscape) almost 20 years ago. In the good tradition of the band — which is completed by Dan’s brother Dag Swanö (guitars, keyboards), Erik Oskarsson (bass) and Tom Björn (drums) — the new album once again showcases a 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.
