Biography

There are three artists with the name Nightingale.

Artist #1: Nightingale began in 1995 as a solo project of Dan Swanö, designed to explore his brief fascination with the genre, also evident on Edge of Sanity tracks such as “Sacrificed”. The first album The Breathing Shadow was recorded and mastered by Swanö alone in the space of a week at his home Unisound studio.

The second album The Closing Chronicles was recorded in April 1996 with his brother Tom Nouga (real name Dag Swanö) acting as producer and contributing some guitar parts. It continues the conceptual storyline that began in The Breathing Shadow to the logical conclusion of the central characters death, as it was intended to be the last Nightingale album.

After this the band went on semi-hiatus, playing a couple of live concerts in small venues around Orebro with future permanent band member Erik Oskarsson on bass and Ari Halinoja playing the drums. The second concert, in October 1998 is remarkable because it marks one of the few times Edge of Sanity songs were performed live by Swanö, the band adding two lighter tracks to bulk out their set (Swanö scarcely performed live with Edge of Sanity, citing his inability to sustain death metal vocals for long enough).
