The Nightflight Orchestra - Satellite - Live at Wacken Open Air 2019
A melody-driven, AOR/classic rock outfit based out of Helsingborg, Sweden, the Night Flight Orchestra has ties to a wide array of established hard rock bands, including Soilwork, Arch Enemy, Darkane, and Spiritual Beggars, among others. Formed in 2007 by Soilwork's Björn Strid and David Andersson, the group eventually morphed into a five-piece with the additions of Sharlee D'Angelo, Richard Larsson, and Jonas Källsbäck, all of whom appeared on the band's 2012 debut, Internal Affairs, released by Coroner Records. They expanded again in 2015 with the arrival of multi-instrumentalist Sebastian Forslund, who marked his debut with the release of the group's sophomore effort, Skyline Whispers. In 2017, the band inked a deal with Nuclear Blast and released Amber Galactic, which earned a Swedish Grammy Award nomination.
