NIGHT should be spelled 'R.O.C.K.’! The Swedish band started out as a Judas Priest and Saxon worshipping act with their first release in 2012 and has now transformed into a timeless and classic rock act with loads of proto-metal influences. Hailed for their wide range of influences and direct approach NIGHT find themselves taking new paths in a musical landscape that is well known for all fans of guitar-based music.
It´s easy to grow fond of NIGHT. It´s easy to say that their influences today could be found in history with artists as Phil Lynott, Mark Knopfler, or Scorpions ’76, or Blue Öyster Cult around ’77. But it´s so much more. With their last album "Raft of the World" (2017 The Sign Records) the band got hails from most part of the rock scene. The dark album moved them several steps away from the NWOBHM background and towards a proto-metal atmosphere of the ’70s.
NIGHT keeps moving and during the spring of 2020 they released a two-track 7” called "Feeling it Everywhere". The directions of the new tracks took them even more into the rhythm and style where the ’70s collided with the ’80s. Where rock music meets up with disco. It was a golden age for music, and the go-to period for many bands to find their influences. The recording was done as an in-studio live session to keep the feeling of live music.
The new and fourth album "High Tides - Distant Skies" will be released in September 2020. NIGHT have once again used the help from producer Ola Ersfjord (Primordial, Dead Lord, Imperial State Electric), with whom they started to work with on "Raft of the World". "High Tides - Distant Skies" is a classic rock album. It holds a greater variety of influences, most of them from a time period when rock was so popular that it was played on arenas around the world.
"Rock is a serious thing, but at the same time, it can't be taken to serious. Rocking is fun and fun it shall remain. For us, I think the future is looking bright and it's feeling groovy. Put on your boots and get ready for the next chapter of NIGHT! Imagine a twilight zone where disco didn't die and rock music was allowed inside studio 54!" - Sammy Ouirra
