Not straying far from his most notable roots, mastermind Fredrik "North" Norrman began Thenighttimeproject. A pleasantly nostalgic road, for those more familiar with his work in Katatonia. This ensemble is completed by Tobias Netzell of In Mourning fame, along with Nicklas Hjertton, formerly of Mandylon. Their debut self-titled album showcase a surprising engagement, close and far from what one would expect. The night has found it's soundtrack...

Thenighttimeproject's self titled debut album sees Fredrik "North" Norrman stepping out with his own blend of Metal. This is certainly more melodic and upbeat than Katatonia's output (a band whose music I have enjoyed over the years).

While it is melancholic, there's no arguing that for Metal fans this will be viewed very much as a feel good album. It opens with the slow builder 'The Annual Loss', with other highlights including the mellow 'Caustic Reflection' and 'Amends'

The album contains 8 songs (46 min, 24 sec) and it's certainly an album that Metal fans will get a lot of enjoyment out of.
