Biography

Formed in 1995, the german Death Metal outfit NIGHT IN GALES has steadily grown up to be a force to be reckoned with. After the quite succesful “SYLPHLIKE” demo, which has been one of the best selling death metal demos ever, and the “RAZOR” EP they signed to NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS, kicking off a row of high quality releases.

Their 1997 debut album ”TOWARDS THE TWILIGHT” and its follow up ”THUNDERBEAST” in 1998 displayed an intense blend of raw power and catchy melody, strong enough to catapult this heavy five piece onto Germany´s no. 1 in their genre. Also NIGHT IN GALES, consisting of Bjoern Goosses (voice), Jens Basten (guitar), Frank Basten (guitar), Tobias Bruchmann (bass) and Christian Bass (drums), always have stated their reputation as a damn heavy live act - 2 European tours (e.g. with In Flames, Dismember), some mini-tours (e.g. with Hypocrisy, Death, Cradle Of Filth), lots of festivals ( e.g. the famous Wacken Open Air, Summer Breeze Open Air etc) and countless single shows offered the audience a lethal pack of unbound energy each night.

But besides their constant live presence NIGHT IN GALES of course didn´t forget about songwriting. Their 3rd album ”NAILWORK”, mixed by producer legend HARRIS JOHNS and released in March 2000, took new paths and its mixture of crushing Death Metal, some more thrashier parts and the interplay of guttural throatwork and melodic vocals established NIGHT IN GALES anew as Germany´s leading act in extreme metal. Another European tour (with Old Man´s Child, Krisiun etc) followed and NIGHT IN GALES left an enthusiastic crowd show for show.
