"Nightrage" is a Greek/Swedish melodic death metal band featuring axemen Marios Iliopoulos (ex-Exhumation) and Gus G. (Firewind, ex-Mystic Prophecy, ex-Dream Evil). They have since re-located to Sweden. Their first release, ''Sweet Vengeance'', was released in 2003 and featured drummer Per Möller Jensen (The Haunted), and bassist Brice Leclercq. Rounding out the band on vocals is the legendary Tomas Lindberg (ex-At The Gates). ''Sweet Vengeance'' also featured clean guest vocals ("Circle of Pain") by Tom S. Englund of Evergrey fame.
Their second release, ''Descent Into Chaos'', was released in 2005 and had a change of line up in the rhythm section. Now playing drums is Fotis Benardo (ex-Septic Flesh, ex-Innerwish) and on bass is Henric Carlsson, who also plays in the band Cipher System. Mikael Stanne, of Dark Tranquillity, provided a clean vocal section on the track "Frozen."
