Sänger Efthimis Karadimas über das Konzept von Cassiopeia: “Cassiopeia has a specific thesis and though its name is linked to both the constellation and the mythical character of Andromeda’s mother, it refers to arrogance as leading characteristic of the human race; the outcome of this and the overweening state of affairs are so popular these harsh days everywhere. The entire world seems to be shifting from its previous position to a new one and all and each one of us that used to feel like masters of our destiny are now starting to wonder about when, where and how this transition will end. It may be a punishment like Cassiopeia and Andromeda who claimed themselves more beautiful even to nereids suffered, or it may be just another change. Time will certainly tell.”

Und über den Song Oberon & Titania: “The song is based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer’s Night Dream couple; He is the king of fairies and She is the fairy queen. Despite their apparent close relationship, they end up forcefully using their powers and skills against each other; like maniacs blinded by light of passion and haughtiness they drag themselves to the lowest dungeons of nature. It is the ceaseless passion between two beings; passion that unites before it destroys anything around it once unleashed. It is true we are nothing when it comes to sustaining our gratefulness in front of desire. We are born broken in a dilute world poets’ admiration cannot disguise. And none can break the broken.”

Cassiopeia erscheint in Europa am 18. Januar 2013 bei Metal Blade Records!

Die Aufnahmen fanden an vier verschiedenen Orten statt, was für NIGHTFALL nichts Ungewöhnliches ist. Vocals und Keyboards wurden in Griechenland aufgenommen (Soundflakes Studios & Cyberia), während die Drums in den deutschen Soundlodge Studios eingehämmert wurden. Gitarren und Bass wurden im amerikanischen Nashville in den Boomcave Studios eingespielt.

Im Vergleich zum Vorgänger Astron Black & The Thirty Tyrants versteckt sich auf Cassiopeia wesentlich mehr Old School Heavy Metal Spirit in jedem Riff. Mercyful Fates und King Diamonds Gitarrenarbeit lassen grüßen, immer mit dem typischen NIGHTFALL-Stempel versehen.
