NIGHTINGALE was established by musical multi-talent and producer Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity / Witherscape) more than 20 years ago and 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 fabulous and timeless hybrid of different musical styles: From atmospheric metal to catchy AOR and also melodic prog,

In related Dan Swanö news, it has been recently announced that 27 years after its initial release, his rock group Unicorn are re-issuing early demo recordings as “A Collection of Worlds – Resurrection”. Find more details about the project here:

Swanö will next be working on a yet unnamed death metal project, showcasing material in the vein of his compositions for Bloodbath, mixed with the early style of Edge Of Sanity and Pan-Thy-Monium. Something to look out for in 2018!

Stay tuned for further Dan Swanö and NIGHTINGALE news coming soon...
