Enigmatic, but genius band Nachtmystium, led by Blake Judd, who helped usher in the current generation of atmospheric black metal in the US has returned. The band have signed with respected Prophecy Productions and will release a new EP, dubbed Resilient in early 2018. Details below:
Blake Judd commented:
“Nachtmystium is extremely honored to be working with Prophecy Productions. It’s a true pleasure for me to have been able to develop a personal relationship with the Prophecy label staff in Southern California. We are able to meet face-to-face regularly and work together at creating the best possible environment for Nachtmystium to begin to rebuild its way back into the metal community after some very dark years and times that I have spent the majority of the last two years cleaning up the debris from. Those dark days are now behind me, the band and all whose lives we effect in one way or another. Onward and upward is the attitude and goal here, as Nachtmystium’s ascension returns to its past form. Expect to hear a lot of new music and news from our camp in 2018.”
Prophecy has also announced the release of the bands’ vaunted back catalogue including the critically acclaimed releases Eulogy IV (2004), Assassins: Black Meddle, Part I (2008), Worldfall (2008), Doomsday Derelicts (2009), Addicts: Black Meddle, Part II (2010), Silencing Machine (2012) and the rare 7” EP As Made (2012). The material from pre-2011 are considered must-haves in the genre for any BM fan’s collection.
More details, music and tour dates will be announced in the future.
