The Nightly Disease was very eagerly anticipated in Norway and Germany. It is the second album by the Norwegian Alternative Rock band Madrugada, originally released in 2001. A large amount of record buyers went crazy for Madrugada after hearing their 1999 debut album Industrial Silence.
Madrugada, however, chose quite differently; they returned with this ultra-bleak record. And for the better of it: this is a much better and more consistent album than their debut. The lyrics are more poetic, the songs are much more diverse, and the production is wonderfully dirty, giving the record a rather dangerous aura.
Madrugada has taken elements of the best bits from their past, for example, the beautifully dark "A Deadend Mind", and combined them with a new rawness and energy found in "Nightly Disease Part II".
