Decibel Magazine is hosting the premiere of “Embers,” the new official video from Swedish melancholic progressive metal act THENIGHTTIMEPROJECT. The band features brothers Fredrik and Mattias Norrman of Katatonia and October Tide, as well as Alexander Backlund and Jonas Sköld from Letters From The Colony, and their lush second album, Pale Season, saw release last year through Debemur Morti Productions.
Pale Season was recorded at Valley Sound Studio/Nailvillage, mixed by guitarist Alexander Backlund at Nailvillage, mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios, and completed with cover art by Denis Forkas and design by Kadriel Betsen.
Backlund writes, “Seeing the Norrman brothers in the flesh is a rare occasion, but many stars, planets and desolate moons must align for them to appear in a performance music video. We’re very happy to unveil the official video for our song ‘Embers’, self-produced and shot in the DIY spirit of the album from which it originates. We would like to thank our good friend Emil Östberg who – with the patience of a saint and hands as steady as a surgeon’s—took it upon himself to capture this rare moment in history.”
Decibel writes, “THENIGHTTIMEPROJECT released it’s second album last year, entitled Pale Season via Debemur Morti Productions. It’s essential listening for anyone who enjoys the powerful yet thoughtful introspective energy of bands like Katatonia, October Tide and Damnation-era Opeth.”

The title of THENIGHTTIMEPROJECT’s second album, Pale Season does not refer to the eight months where the weather in Sweden is a signature grey. Instead, it refers to those less-colorful patches of memory – years that fly by without anything spectacular happening, which pale in comparison to the vividness of one’s childhood or the early days of romance. This, in other words, is an album for all those moments lost in between the extremes of the emotional spectrum. Elements of Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Anathema, Katatonia, and A Perfect Circle combine to create a record that is sublime in every way. A paean to melancholia, Pale Season is also not without its moments of physical and emotional heft and introduces the band to the international stage.
