Wearing a Martyr's Crown[1] is the fourth album by the melodic death metal band Nightrage. The album was released on June 22, 2009 through German label, Lifeforce Records.[1] The European digipak includes a demo version of "Failure of All Human Emotions" as a bonus track. The Japanese version of the album includes a cover of Metallica's "Holier Than Thou."

On February 18, 2010 Nightrage released their third music video for the song Wearing a Martyr's Crown while on a tour of Greece. The video was once again directed by Bob Katsionis and was recorded at Zero Gravity Studios which is located in Athens.[citation needed]

The title for the instrumental Sting Of Remorse was inspired by lyrics from the song Surge Of Pity which appears on the album A New Disease Is Born.
