Nightlord have just unveiled the cover art for their long-awaited third album which will be entitled 'Reborn In Darkness'.

The artwork, brought to life by renowned creative artist Andy Pilkington of Very Metal Art (Flotsam And Jetsam, Virus, Herman Frank, Bloodstock Open Air), features the statues Melancholia and Mania, which represent the personalisation of depression and schizophrenia, as seen in the notorious Victorian mental asylum Bethlem Royal Hospital, known popularly as Bedlam. By some coincidence, 'Bedlam' is also the title of the opening track on the album.

'Reborn In Darkness' features the first new Nightlord tracks since the band reformed in 2010. It was mixed and mastered by recording legend Chris Tsangarides (Judas Priest, Ozzy Osbourne, Bruce Dickinson, Black Sabbath, Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore, Anvil, UFO, Y&T... the list is endless) and features nine tracks of solid British thrash Metal.


'Reborn In Darkness' goes on general release on Monday 28th November.

To accompany the release, Nightlord will be releasing three music videos over the coming weeks, but you can get a special early preview of all three videos and some other special content by singing up free of charge at the Official Nightlord website here.

Nightlord just appeared at Titanfest 2016 in their hometown of London this weekend, alongside such well-known names as Onslaught, Skyclad, Oliver/Dawson Saxon, Hell, Warrior Soul, Anihilated, Beholder and a host of others. You can read all about what was a tremendous day here.

Nightlord's next live appearance will be headlining the opening night of Eradication Festival in Cardiff on April 20th.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
