Nightland - For Once My Name - Song Review - Melodic Death Metal from Pesaro, Italy

Today we are featuring a promising melodic death metal band, Nightland, from Pesaro, Italy, with their single, “For Once My Name”.

Nightland is one of the important discoveries I have made here at Metalhead Community through the years, even though I know them only with their single "For Once My Name" which was released in 2021. The song immediately appealed to me with its dark moody feeling, instrumentation, energy, production, established sound, and the depth of its musicality.

The first thing that came to my mind while listening to For Once My Name was Gojira, and I am sure I am not the only one who thinks this way among those who listened to it. Nightland has the punch and attack spirit of Gojira, along with other influences in their musicality and instrumentation. The song simply has irresistible energy and dynamics, a perfect fit for those who are into Gojira just like me.

Additionally, I am also happy that the song doesn't have anything standard or too modern in its approach in general. Nightland apparently doesn't approve of modern djent and overly digital-sounding metal music, which played a big role in my decision. They welcome traditional influences in their roots, while also using modern techniques to make their sound as solid as possible. In this way, For Once My Name is one of the best-sounding metal songs that I listened to in this specific genre lately.

Lastly, the band shows great potential with their melodic death metal roots in their origins. They have the brutal energy and grooves of Gojira, blended with the darkness and progressive spirit of Ihsahn. Both of these bands have changed my life as a metal fan and artist, so this song was an instant match for my taste.

On the other side of the coin, there's nothing I can mention as negative in their case. Nightland is an experienced band with respected work and discography, proper attitude, necessary image, and professionally managed social accounts. I am listening to new music every single day for the last ten years of my life and they are one of the very few best metal bands from Italy I have heard.

When I take all these into account, I'd like to say that I've had a great time listening to For Once My Name. Nightland will be on Metalhead Community's radar and have our full support from now on. I'd be happy to see these Italian gentlemen open for acts such as Gojira someday!
