NIGHTSTALKER have earned a reputation due to their pure Rock ‘n Roll attitude and their constant live activity, and been lauded with the highest praise and respect since their beginning in the early 90’s.

Heavy sound, groovy rhythms, intense bass playing. All together with a lot of catchy melodies and the power of Argy’s vocals are the secret of the music of Nightstalker. Raw rock 'n roll simplicity, stunning riffs and electric haze are what have kept the band going for more than 20 years.

The whole concept was realized by the singer (and drummer at that time), Argy, who was the founding member of the band. Together with Andreas (ex Rotting Christ member), who joined in 1992, managed to combine their heavy rock influences with funky rhythms and grunge melodies. With all these elements they released the first EP called ‘SideFx’ in 1994. With the second, but first full length album ‘USE’ (1996), the band established their rich songwriting, the heavy sound that has been their trademark to this day. After a ‘dark era’ with member changes but also an EP release (The Ritual,2000), which was the deepest, darkest psychedelic album they have ever made, the band managed to gain recognition and a new strong fanbase with the release of the ‘Just A Burn’ album. In 2009 the band released the ‘Superfreak’ album through the US label ‘Meteorcity’. In 2012 the band signed with ‘Small Stone Records’ to release album, titled ‘Dead Rock Commandos’. The album gained a lot of great reviews worldwide and the release combined with european tour and participation in summer festivals and established the band’s name in bigger audience, with the success of the video clip ‘Children of the Sun’ (with millions of views). In 2016 the band released the album ‘As Above, So Below’ through Oak Islands Records which is followed by hundreds of live gigs (tour and festivals) and reached a milestone when Greek Metal Hammer released a tribute CD by other bands playing Nightstalker’s covers!

In 2019 the band signed with ‘Heavy Psych Sounds’ in order to make a step forward with the release of the ‘Great Hallucinations’ in October 2019. The first single will be out in July 2019 and a European tour follows in Oct-Nov 2019.


The band was formed in 2016, when Drugo (drums) and Logan (bass) were already playing in another band that played doom metal, then they decided to break away and form their own that had a psychedelic/stoner style. After placing an ad looking for a guitarist, Burton immediately showed up and the musical understanding started right away. Their musical influences, on the other hand, were quite similar, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, 70's hard rock, Seattle grunge, up to the granite desert sound of Kyuss. They started doing covers of Kyuss and Sungrazer, but at the same time they also prepared their own songs. So, in November 2017, they recorded the 1st album "Lost in Dunes", all instrumental, an album in which the theme of the songs was obviously the desert.

The songs are born from their very long jam sessions in the rehearsal room, which often turn into psychedelic suites that last more than half an hour. The song "Lost in Dunes" is a jam session made during the recording of the 1st album. They had all the songs by now but the sound engineer told them they still had some time and while he was out for a smoke they recorded the piece about 15 minutes long. And as it was played it was put on the album with no overdubs or digital manipulation.

With "Deafening Silence" they wanted a more psychedelic sound, much more like the long jam sessions played in the rehearsal room. The songs were born during the pandemic. In Italy it was something that deeply marked them. Like everyone else, they spent several weeks at home and the streets were deserted and absolutely quiet but with a ghostly and eerie sensation, the feeling was just that of a deafening silence. Even Logan's lyrics are a bit dark and gloomy, as if there's a dark presence in everyday life. On "Endless Night," Logan's voice carries that ghostly presence that loomed over us all. Drugo designed the cover and the artwork, which you can download from bandcamp, and he was inspired by Blade Runner to make it. In both films, as in the songs on the album, there was the same feeling of foreboding that hovered in a dystopian future, in which not all the answers are clear and many questions are still unanswered.

They love making this kind of music, but they still don't feel like they've given their best. Their goal is to play at European DesertFest and support bands they adore, such as King Buffalo, Somali Yacht Club, Stoned Jesus, Colour Haze, My Sleeping Karma.
