about

THENIGHTTIMEPROJECT were formed 2010 in Avesta, Sweden by guitarist Fredrik Norrmann (ex-KATATONIA, OCTOBER TIDE) as an outlet for bold, melancholic songwriting imbued with feeling.

Second album ‘Pale Season’ melds a haunted mix of alt, progressive and post-Rock, neo-gothic Metal, doom and subtle psychedelia into an assured set of hook-strewn songs that find peace in the depths of inner turmoil.

Throughout, vocalist/guitarist/producer Alexander Backlund tempers emotive choruses of melodic light with a disaffected lyrical worldview, supported perfectly by ghostly electronic textures, lush keyboard adornments and the full-band telepathy of musicians at the top of their game.

‘Pale Season’ culminates in a guest vocal performance of powerful beauty from Heike Langhans (DRACONIAN, ISON) on the penultimate epic ‘Signals in the Sky’, where the rich thematic content of this striking album coalesces into a doom-inflected totem of perseverance and wounded defiance.

Track Name: Hound
You're staring at me
From across the water
Your hair is fire
Loyal, always
Yet you doubt my return
Every soul that you
have welcomed here below
Will merge in the
glowing caldera of hurt

It's never-ending
I’ll keep them here for you
How beautiful, the view
A speck in the red
And mountains rise again
Rending the spine of the world
From end to end

Ropes burn and daylight blinds
As I am torn from your side
Bereft again, as if the ocean
and the skies weren't enough

I’ll drink from the rivers
that divide us now
I'll open a chasm
and return somehow

It's never-ending
Our work beneath the ground
The master and the hound
Old stone is ground to sand
By hand, wind or rain
They shall know pain
As the earth opens again
Track Name: Rotting Eden
[Verse 1]
The lengths I've gone to slow the heart
To blank the mind, erase the thoughts
And embrace the void a second time
Reminiscing on dead days
A rotting eden, green and grey

[Chorus]
Our love is a closing wound
What we bury here will bloom to rot
Whose arms will hold you
When mine became your tomb?
Will you water our garden
Of withering thought?

[Verse 2]
Pull this idolatry up by the roots
Decay the blossom of our youth
The gentle stillness I’m pining to feel
Is wasted on a heart that never heals

[Chorus]
Our love is a closing wound
What we bury here will bloom to rot
Whose arms will hold you
When mine became your tomb?
Will you water our garden
Of withering thought?

[Stick]
Welcome slowing of the heart
Quiet void of years apart
A tomb within my arms
Images bloom to rot

[Verse 3]
Sever the vines of wishful thought
Eliminate the cause
Reminiscing on dead days
A rotting eden, grim and grave

[Chorus]
Our love is a closing wound
What we bury here will bloom to rot
Whose arms will hold you
When mine became your tomb?
Will you water our garden
Of withering thought?
Track Name: Binary
Our bodies twist with desire
In an endless dance
Of want without boundaries
And a lack unparalleled

You keep me here like gravity
Awake throughout the night
The riddles on your skin
Unravel in this light

In the dark I rummage to find
Words that hold more poetry than mine

To end this celestial waltz
The riddles on your skin
Tangle in the dark

You push, I pull
A dance so meaningless
And beautiful

In the dark I rummage to find
Words that hold more poetry than mine
Track Name: Final Light
I wade in the water
On the shores of tedium
Where days come crashing
Devoid of significance

In the sands, my heart is lost
Trapped in the neck of the hourglass
As if to sift the soil and trap the gold
But nothing sticks and nothing flows

While the horizon bleeds its final light
And paints the stars across my eyes
I hear the hymn sung behind a veil
Of fractured smiles and hopes growing dim
I hear you singing with the swans

Waves reach far to wash away
Another static, fallow day
I've lost count, the grains won't fall
I feel my blood slow to a halt

While the horizon bleeds its final light
And paints the stars across my eyes
I hear the hymn sung behind a veil
Of fractured smiles and hopes growing dim

Part the waters of old devotion
Bleak and faded now
Like moonlight scattered
Across a restless ocean
Take my hand and lead me down
Trade my sober grey for brilliant blue

Because my heart is lost
Snared in the grip of a dying love
Writhing in its final throes
Time stands still and nothing flows

I wade in the water
In the tide of wasted years
An endless stream of fallow days
Wishing you were here
Track Name: Embers
We are ashes on the ground
No phoenix will rise this time around
We are depleted, we are unable
To reinvent ourselves, to pretend
Like we weren't buried with our youth
And find solace in that truth

An ember of days long lost
Slowly dimming in the frost

We are dust and distant lights
Playing tricks on our own minds
The sun is held within a breath
And night becomes you
But as the stars recede
And our wounds resume to bleed
We’re at a loss for words
And all the lines are blurred

An ember of days long lost
Slowly dimming in the frost

We fan the fires of
A long-forgotten love
Embers dance and die
Above the funeral pyre

We were buried with our youth
Find solace in that truth
The embers of days long lost
Dead and dying in the frost
Track Name: Pale Season
The cold stare of vacant eyes
Windows into an abandoned mind
I've been waiting for a light to turn on
For your heart to find its way home

You were the anchor
For my drifting thoughts
This was not the end I sought
Apathy is not the answer
You surrendered

I've been waiting for a fire to light
A torch to guide me through the night

You were the anchor
For my drifting thoughts
This was not the end I sought
Apathy is not the answer
You surrendered

Beyond contemplation
Your capacity to feel, diminishing
In chemical exile from the pain of being
Track Name: Signals In The Sky
Circles in the sand
Our time here is fragile
Signals in the sky
The message has been clear for a while

Hanging from the tree of life
The suffering is human
Heed the call to all
For what's to come, we must allow forgiveness

A silence on the water
A mirror to heaven
Searching for the answers
Finding nothing more than more questions

Rising from the fire
The monster you have called upon
Heed the siren's song
For what's to come, we must endure together


The cracks beneath the surface
The secrets they've been hiding
Shatter the illusion
Only those who love will survive

Rising from the waters
The Age we've all been waiting for
A light on the horizon
For what's to come, we've never seen before.
