In 2002, The Fossil Dungeon was proud to release the limited edition signature CDR single entitled “Nightingale”, showcasing the band’s latest recording efforts. This new exclusive song (extended version), along with a new track entitled “Witches Gold,” is available for the first time as a limited and luxorious gatefold 7inch EP and limited CD.

The “Nightingale” single exemplified that Mephisto Walz is still a very active band and that they remain one of the most appreciated artists within the gothic rock genre. The album, “Insidious” released in 2004 reinforces its presence as a leading ethereal rock ensemble.
