The band issued the following statement: “Nightbringer is extremely proud to unveil our latest album, ‘Ego Dominus Tuus’, an undertaking almost exactly one year in the making, from first compositions to the final day of mastering. ‘Ego Dominus Tuus’ represents the path of ordeal, from the transformative Fires of the Art within the crucible of the underworld, to the revelation of the Daimon to the Guardian at the Threshold and slaying Sun of Death, Light of Lucifer, all contained within the enigma of a sacred name.”

Established in 1999, NIGHTBRINGER was created as a conduit for the contemplations on the mysteries of death as it is understood in the tradition of the art magical. The band have an uncompromising, orthodox approach to black metal. 2011’s ‘Hierophany of the Open Grave’ has further solidified the band’s signature sound: characterized by cacophonous walls of distortion, haunting melodies, and occult lyrics revering the unholy. NIGHTBRINGER has made select rare appearances in the United States and Europe as part of various metal festivals; these include Maryland Deathfest, Under the Black Sun Festival, and the cult Gathering of the Shadows.
