While I mentioned yesterday that Nachtmystium are a great introduction to black metal because of their almost avant-garde flair and penchant for poppy hooks and danceable beats, it looks like their forthcoming LP Silencing Machine will be more stripped-back into the realm of black metal. Fret not though! If the title track is any indication, they’re still holding on to some industrial influence (the album’s name is a Nine Inch Nails reference!) and the track is still ridiculously catchy for black metal. Pitchfork has the stream and an interview with Blake Judd, so click through to give a spin and a read.
Silencing Machine is due out July 31st on Century Media Records.
