Nightstalker + Playgrounded @ Grounds
Formed in Greece, in late 1989, by singer (and at the time drummer) Argy and made truly stable with the addition of bassist Andreas in 1992, Nightstalker managed to meld their heavy rock influences with funky rhythms and grungy melodies to create a whole new beast. With all these elements in place they released the first EP in 1994 entitled “SideFx.” With the release of their first full length album “USE” in 1996, the band established themselves and their own trademark brand of dark heavy sounds. 2000 saw a slight shuffle in membership as well as a new EP, “The Ritual,” which found Nightstalker treading further in to the realms of deepest, darkest Psychedelica. Line-up fully entrenched the ensuing pair of albums, 2004’s “Just A Burn” and 2009’s “Superfreak” garnered the band a new and loyal following across the world. Which sets the stage for their newest dark masterpiece, “Dead Rock Commandos.” Another album worth of raw rock ’n roll simplicity, filled with stunning riffs and electric haze. More heavy sounds, groovy rhythms and intense bass playing all merging with the power of Argy’s vocals, which is the secret to the music of Nightstalker that has kept the band going for more than 20 years and made them one of the most important bands in the history of the European Hard Rock scene. Call it whatever you want, but do so at your own risk.
In 2019 the legendary stoner rockers are back! One of the first bands of the genre present their 8th album. This time the album hits directly to the soul. 8 new tracks which are different to each other, combining groovy parts with heaviness and melodies. The guitars are still heavy but spacey and psychedelic at the same time. The bass is always groovy with intense playing. All together with a lot of catchy melodies, raw rock ’n roll simplicity, stunning riffs and electric haze. Produced by Nightstalker again and this time it is recorded and mixed at ‘Wreck it Sound Studios’. Listening to Nightstalker you can figure out why Greece is the perfect country for stoner rock bands and why the Greek stoner scene is one of the greatest worldwide.
