Nightingale are a once goth rock, now progressive/AOR metal/rock band from Ă–rebro in Sweden. They are signed to Black Mark Records.
Nightingale began in 1995 as a solo goth rock project of Dan SwanĂ¶, designed to explore his brief fascination with the genre, also evident on Edge of Sanity tracks such as "Sacrificed". The first album The Breathing Shadow was recorded and mastered by SwanĂ¶ alone in the space of a week at his home Unisound studio, and has been described by some as a tribute to legendary goth rock band The Sisters of Mercy, whose sound it does indeed resemble. The second album The Closing Chronicles was recorded in April 1996 with his brother Tom Nouga (real name Dag SwanĂ¶) acting as producer and contributing some guitar parts. Unlike the first album, it is somewhat influenced by prog rock and heavy metal, and continues the conceptual storyline that began in The Breathing Shadow to the logical conclusion of the central characters death, as it was intended to be the last...
