Heavy sound, groovy rhythms, intense bass playing. All together with a lot of catchy melodies and the power of Argy’s vocals are the secret of the music of Nightstalker. Raw rock 'n roll simplicity, stunning riffs and electric haze are what have kept the band going for more than 20 years.
The whole concept was realized by the singer (and drummer at that time), Argy, who was the founding member of the band. Together with Andreas (ex Rotting Christ member), who joined in 1992, managed to combine their heavy rock influences with funky rhythms and grunge melodies. With all these elements they released the first EP called 'SideFx' in 1994. With the second, but first full length album 'USE' (1996), the band established their rich songwriting, the heavy sound that has been their trademark to this day. After a ‘dark era’ with member changes but also an EP release (The Ritual,2000), which was the deepest, darkest psychedelic album they have ever made, the band managed to gain recognition and a new strong fanbase with the release of the ‘Just A Burn’ album. In 2009 the band released the ‘Superfreak’ album through the US label ‘Meteorcity’, the most successful till now.
After a respectful album history and having played hundreds of live shows in their musical career (many with bigtime international acts like The Ramones and Uriah Heep), they became one of the most important bands in the history of the European Hard Rock scene.
In 2012 the band signed with ‘Small Stone Records’ to release the sixth (fourth full-length) album, titled ‘Dead Rock Commandos’. The album will be available in summer 2012 and it’s gonna be a ‘Rock orgasm’!
