Nightqueen was founded at the end of 2004. Songwriter and guitarist Rex Zeco wanted to break the illusion that heavy metal is only popular in metalminded quarters; he wanted to compose a kind of metal for everyone. The formula was simple ... strong guitarriffs in 80’s style, upgraded with the modern metalbeats and a melodic songmelody with catchy tunes that stay in the music fan ’s head for a long time. Rex had the help of Hi-Dee, who assisted him with writing the right lyrics: well- considered lyrics about love, understanding and social abuses; interweaved with mystic and fantasy. The first song they wrote was “Queen of the Night”. And that title sounded good for a band name as well, thus, ‘Nightqueen’ was born. The band name has a double meaning : first of all the queen of the night; the never ending story of a simple housewife – sick and tired of the daily toil - who is transforming into the mistress of metal. Secondly, ‘Nightqueen’ is a given name for a big bat. That’s why the band chose for a bat as their symbol. Most of the lyrics also take place overnight; something that is very typical for Nightqueen. The first years were a real hell. Musicians came and left. It was very hard to find musicians with the right professional spirit to let the project succeed. The band reformed 3 times before the right line-up was found: 6 talented musicians who all have the same goal ... : to bring Nightqueen as far as possible in the musicworld. Fantasy ? My ass !!! And now the Nightqueenstory will start by unleashing our thunder to the crowd. Hail to our Majesty, the queen and her knights !!!
