Footage of Tomas Lindberg Performing with Nightrage This Past Weekend

0

Nightrage vocalist Antony Hämäläinen was unable to make the band’s gig at the Gothenburg Sound Festival in Sweden this past weekend due to a scheduling conflict, but not to worry: the band hired a perfectly suitable replacement to fill in for the gig. At the Gates / Disfear / The Crown / The Lock Up frontman Tomas Lindberg, who sang on Nightrage’s debut album, stepped up to the plate in a major way, and, from the looks of it, did an admirable job.

I’m not sure whether “The Glow of the Setting Sun,” from 2003’s Sweet Vengeance, is still a staple of Nightrage’s live set… but regardless, it must’ve been a treat for fans to hear it live with Lindberg on vocals. Here’s some fan-filmed footage of the track with decent quality audio:

If you’ve lost track of Nightrage in the years since Lindberg left the band, you’ve made a mistake: their 2011 album Insidious was excellent and almost made my year-end list. It’s exactly the slice of classic Gothenburg you’re looking for without any of the cheese of modern-day In Flames. Stream the entire album for free on Spotify right here.
