If you can’t read that properly, here is the text in German:

“Die Schweden NIGHTINGALE sind neben Witherscape die aktuell wichtigste Band des ehemaligen Edge-Of-Sanity-Kopfs Dan Swanö, und wir sind mächtig stolz, dass sie auf dem Rock Hard Festival eine ihrer raren Shows spielen. Neben ihren eigenen Melodic-Progressive-Goth-Hardrock-Schoten (hell yeah!) werden sie natürlich auch den einen oder anderen EOS-Klassiker aus der Mottenkiste holen. Black blood, black tears!”

And in English: Next to Witherscape, Swedens NIGHTINGALE is the most important band of former Edge of Sanity’s mainman Dan Swanö, and we are mighty proud that they will be playing one of their rare live shows at the Rock Hard Festival.In addition to their own Melodic-Progressive-Goth-Hardrock-songs (hell yeah!) they will of course dig out as well one or the other of the EOS-classics.Black blood, black tears!
