InfiNight - American-Power Metal with a touch of Bay Area Thrash and a large amount of Heavy Metal

InfiNight Founded in 2001, InfiNight is a fixum besides the fast moving metal music business. Through shows, e.g. as support for POWERWOLF, BLIND GUARDIAN, CHILDREN OF BODOM, etc., as well as at festivals like the legendary WACKEN OPEN AIR, InfiNight could already enthuse a wide audience and build up a Germany-wide fanbase.
And also the band doesn't lag behind the big ones in business: Three studio albums released, two EPs, and more than hundred shows demonstrate the amount of work of the German Metal Institution.

The songwriting of InfiNight is not alway oriented to conventional grids. The band sometimes chooses a bolder way to write. There are often atmospheric and very emotional componets which denote their songs. But fans of the power and ingenuity of the more American influenced Power Metal have also here their proper place. InfiNight mix sophisticated guitar riffing with pounding drums and grooving bass. In addition distinctive, charismatic vocals with high recognition value - being concise, Metal in its purest form!

According to numerous enthusiastic album reviews, some honorable comparisons with bands like NEVERMORE, ICED EARTH or METALLICA came. But nobody denies the great self-reliance of InfiNight.

Founded in the spring 2001, published InfiNight 2005 their debut album "Sea of Knowledge" (9 songs, 55 minutes of playing time). This helped the band in addition to numerous appearances to get some attention (bright-eyes.de: 13/13, metal.de: 8/10) in the nationwide Metal scene.

The following concept-EP "The Vision" (five songs, 15 minutes of playing time) was published in May 2013 and again InfiNight earned rave reviews (time-for-metal.eu: 95/100, absolutehell.net 90/100 evil rock hard.net: 9/10).

In August 2015 InfiNight presented their third studio album "Apex Predator" (eleven songs, 61 minutes of playing time).

And also "Fifteen" earned rave reviews (Metal Na Lata: 10/10, MetalZone: 9,5/10).
