Nightingale  


Initially Nightingale was purely a solo project for ex-Edge Of Sanity vocalist Dan Swano, who as many know has had his hands in many bands/projects throughout the years. He was later joined by Tom Nouga, who in reality is Dan's older brother Dag, for the second and third albums, and finally the project became a genuine band with the arrival of a proper rhythm section. Many of Swanö's bands are rooted in one form or another of death metal (see Edge Of Sanity, Pan-Thy-Monium, and Bloodbath), but here the focus is on melodic progressive metal (at least on The Closing Chronicles) and even prog rock, which isn't too suprising when hearing Dan's Moontower solo work. Dan always has his hands in several projects at any one time, so it's anyone's guess as to when he records again, but as of late 2009 he stated he's working on new Nightingale material.
