Biography

Colorado, United States (1999 – present)

Nightbringer is the name of more than one artist.

1. black metal from Colorado
2. hardcore punk band from Ann Arbor, MI.

1. An occult band formed in 1999 by Nox Corvus and Alcameth in Colorado (and joined by their third member, Ophis, a year later),

In 2000/2001, Nightbringer partook in a Horde of Darkenwood compilation CD with two songs and then recorded another two songs in 2002, “The Void” and “Mors Philosophorum”. These later two tracks were eventually used for the Nightbringer / Temple of Not “Rex Ex Ordine Throni” Split CD released on FMP in 2005, with the addition of two new songs recorded between 2003 and 2004 entitled, “The Dark and the Silence” and Nightbringer’s “Vir Sapiens Dominabitur Astris”. Nightbringer’s music on the Nightbringer / Temple of Not “Rex Ex Ordine Throni” Split CD has been described as “dark, scathing occult black metal of a higher caliber.” Temple of Not is a project of Nightbringer’s members and appears on the release with two lengthier tracks of amorphic black ambient. The Nightbringer / Temple of Not “Rex Ex Ordine Throni” split album was also released on gatefold double LP vinyl by Forever Plagued Records, U.S.A.

Nightbringer recorded their debut full-length “Death and the Black Work” late 2008. Nightbringer describe “Death and the Black Work” as a “major undertaking” and a “more complete vision of what we began with ‘Rex ex Ordine Throni’; descent into the corrosive waters of Lethe, falling into the two-fold death.”

    It's different from their previous work since their other primary songwriter, Nox Corvus, had left after The Ruins of Edom split, and incorporates the songwriting of multiple band members as opposed to being primarily guided by Nox Corvus and Naas Alcameth like in the past. Regardless, anyone that hears anything remotely resembling Dimmu Borgir in anything Nightbringer has done needs to go the way of Van Gogh ;)

    Just listened to the full-length and I was right, it features only one track that wasn't ruined by synthesisers (although I must admit that a lot of the riffs are underwhelming, too). I fear this is the influence of the guitarist who was also the man behind "Temple of Not". It's hard to believe that these are the same people who made "Death and the Black Work". Originally I was planning on ridiculing Nightbringer by comparing them to Dimmu Borgir et al. and joking about how they added a keyboarder to their lineup for live appearances but "funeral_mmon" actually beat me to it.

    Ego Dominus Tuus is better than Hierophany, but somewhat inferior to the first two albums. Still probably going to be my AOTY unless Ascension, Blut Aus Nord, or Mitochondrion releases an absolute musical epiphany later this year

    "It's full of synthesisers and represents a massive break from their former organic, dissonant style." AND THAT'S A GOOD THING! new songs are fantastic, this will be their best album...can't wait!

    qattle, I should simply say that you should wait a while and listen to the album before casting your judgment. After listening to it for almost a year now, I can safely say that it is the best thing they have done yet.

    I enjoy the splits w/ Acherontas and Dødsengel.. The full-lengths tend to get a bit boring. I pre-ordered the new one though out of curiosity. Let's see.

    The new track is very disappointing. It's full of synthesisers and represents a massive break from their former organic, dissonant style. It seems that Nightbringer are becoming a melodic black metal band - another one bites the dust. I suspect that this release will be an immense betrayal.

    that new song sounds ok, not as good as the recent split tracks though. i imagine the rest of the album is better.

    New album is absolutely killing it. Didn't expect it to be THAT great.
