Few bands today embrace their own individualism to ultimately craft something truly unique and genre defying regardless of its sales potential. Enter the Chicago-based NACHTMYSTIUM who embrace the true spirit of individuality and intolerance forming solely as an outlet to express the dark musical visions and summonings of those involved.
This vicious, uncompromising quartet, led by mastermind Blake Judd are currently working on material for Black Meddle Part II and will soon embark on the highly anticipated "U.S. Plague Tour" featuring the Swedish black metal legends Marduk along with Mantic Ritual, Merrimack and Black Anvil. The fall trek kicks off on Nov. 20th and runs through Dec. 16th so either see below or visit www.myspace.com/nachtmystium to view their complete touring itinerary.
Judd further describes his excitement over this upcoming tour: "We're honored to announce our upcoming tour supporting Swedish black metal legends Marduk. It's an honor to be going out with this band we've all been listening to for years and to be getting back on the road after a rocky year between canceled tours and festivals due to injuries and other unfortunate circumstances. We're currently working on material for Black Meddle Part II (official title TBA) and will be doing a demoing pre-production session with Sanford Parker in October. The new material is reminiscent of Assassins with more of a rock and roll edge over all. Our love for post rock and industrial (ala Ministry, Killing Joke, etc) is even more present this time around. We're hoping to make a record that will continue to push extreme music into uncharted territories. Recording for the new record will begin in early January and we project to have the record out in March or April. We hope to see you all soon."
