Septic Flesh seem to have caused a wave with their "rebirth" - now, another Greek legend reports back on the scene to form a conga line with them and Rotting Christ... This is the missing link between "Athenian echoes" and "Lesbian show".

Nightfall could be compared a bit to Orphaned Land - the latter are poster childs of modern, more extreme music in their home country Israel - and so are Nightfall in Greece, both of them having a Doom/Death pedigree. Nightfall released two courageous works with folkloristic accents in the Death/Black universe: the "Eons aura" MCD and "Athenian echoes" which was totally underestimated. Then, like their compatriots Rotting Christ, they took the road to mainstream Dark Metal. Their two last experimental albums were released almost unnoticed by the public. And now, they’re back, supported by Jörg Uken (God Dethroned, among others) behind the kit - and at the switches and knobs, too. In spite of the totally new line-up Efthimiadis has gathered, the old flame is still burning: anthem-like, majestic, aggressive and versatile re guitars and keyboard/piano, Nightfall find their place between "Athenian echoes" and catchy "Lesbian show", replenished by some clear vocal parts. Brilliant!
