Let it be known first off that the headline wasn’t meant to be inflammatory or in any detriment to the band. In fact, I quite enjoy them and I wouldn’t really consider myself a fan of the genre. The band’s previous effort Addicts is an excellent gateway into the genre, so if you’re looking for an excuse to blacken your taste buds, that would be a great place to start.
Looking forward, I’m excited about the new Nachtmystium record, Silencing Machine. According to the band, they’re currently in the studio right now working on it, but decided to share the news before it was complete:
Nachtmystium is in the studio! We’re in the middle of our fifth day of tracking. Just completing the drums today for our new full-length album, “Silencing Machine”, to be released on Century Media Records worldwide on Tuesday, July 31st, 2012. (It will be available on CD / LP / digital) More details about the release as we draw nearer to the release date. We will also be announcing the official tour dates for our upcoming U.S. midwest mini-tour with KRIEG and MURMUR beginning on July 25th. We will be headlining the first of two nights at the annual underground black metal festival, The Gathering Of Shadows, out in Colorado. The festival dates are July 27th and July 28th. We will headline the night of the 27th, and then we will be playing a headlining show in Denver with the full tour package + local support on Sunday, July 29th. Venue and ticketing details will be announced when we release the details for the entire tour sometime next week.
