Nocturnal Rites

Nocturnal Rites is a Swedish power metal band formed in 1994, Umeå/Holmsund. So far they've released 7 studio albums.

Their first three albums ('In a Time of Blood and Fire', 'Tales of Mystery and Imagination' and 'The Sacred Talisman') feature the former vocalist Anders Zackrisson, while the newer albums are sung by Johnny Lindkvist.
