Nightspirit album are now nearly completed - the album will be released

nice surprise guests!

|17.Oct.2007 | Third album now in preparation!|
| "Greetings to all our fans!
First of all we'd like to thank you all for your endless support and kind words!
We have some good news for you: we've just started to write new songs for our upcoming album, which will hopefully be released at the end of this year under the wings of Equilibrium Music. The planned album title is "Osforrás", meaning the primal source, from which all life had sprung. This new album will show our more spiritual and shamanic side, keeping the path we have started to walk on our previous album, "Rego rejtem". This time we'll use some really unique, ethnic instruments such as fujara (woodwind) and morin khuur (a two stringed, horse-head fiddle of mongolian origin). More details will be coming soon.
Meanwhile, the band will be performing several live shows throughout Europe. In April we'll be playing in Sweden, Belgium and Holland, in May the band will be touring in Germany and Switzerland. See you there! More european concerts and festival appearences are under organization. Please check back often for more dates.

|30.Oct.2006 | New album on the way!|
We have entered Hungarian Elysion Studio to record our second full-length album "Regõ Rejtem". This time we'll "dig" deeper into the steadfast and ancient soil of Hungarian and pagan music, revealing some of the unseen jewels of the slumbering Mother Earth... The new album will follow the traditions of the debut album "Of dreams forgotten and fables untold" yet it will be more lively and the newly used instruments (kaval,tapan, jew's harp,zither) will add more ethnic and ancient feelings to the music. "Regõ Rejtem" will come out under the wings of Equilibrium Music early next year. In the meantime we (with the help of Equilibrium) have begun to organize live concerts throughout Europe. More details will be added soon.
May the ancient spirits guide you all! Blessed be!
