International super-group pays tribute to Goodbye to Gravity

“Horizons”, recorded by international super-group Nightshadows Lament, with members from My Dying Bride, Tristania, Apoptygma Berzerk, Mortiis, Hellbound Hearts or Green Carnation, is a new single from the album Back to Life – A Tribute to Goodbye to Gravity, album that contains Goodbye to Gravity songs recorded by various international bands. This is a charitable project as all the profits will be donated to the GTG members and families and to the victims from the Colectiv Club tragedy from Bucharest, Romania, happened on October 30th 2015 during the release show of the “Mantras of War” album, when an unexpected fire from the pyrotechnics caused 64 victims (including 4 out of the 5 GTG members) and hundreds of injured ones.

Shaun declared:

Although I wasn’t aware of Goodbye To Gravity before October I’ve had the pleasure playing in Romania several times making many great friends along the way. It is truly saddening for such an incident to happen at any music event, but in our own subculture and with friends present hits close to home. We hope our take on the track ‘Horizons’ will be an honourable tribute to both Goodbye To Gravity and all those affected.

The song was recorded and mixed by Kenneth Lykkas at Head Disco Studios and mastered by Luculescu Alin Gabriel.

Nightshadows Lament originated as a doom/black metal project in 2005 with music written by Shaun MacGowan and vocals performed by several others on EPs ‘Isolophobia’ and ‘Prayers Gone Unheard’. The project lay dormant until 2016 when resurrected for tribute to Goodbye To Gravity and those affected by the tragedy in October 2015.
