“The new record will have a very strong industrial influence in the vein of later-era Ministry, Revolting Cocks and Nine Inch Nails, but also a strong, depressive, old-school black metal influence,” explains frontman and guitarist Blake Judd.
Now that sounds interesting. As a metal fan, I still appreciate the genius of Nine Inch Nails, and I was a big Ministry fan back in the diz-zay. I even own some Revolting Cocks records. So, I’m interested to hear what Nachtmystium comes up with.
Meanwhile, according to a press release, some of the band’s members have been busying themselves with separate projects. Judd is slated to appear on Von bassist Venien‘s Von Venien project, which will soon release a 12-inch single.
A Nachtmystium and Von split — featuring new material as well as Nachtmystium covering Von, which sounds like it could be fucking glorious — is also in the cards.
The band’s also got some local shows scheduled…and by local, I mean local to their native Chicago. Here are those dates.
5/6: Chicago, IL @ Cobra Lounge (w/ Lord Mantis, Defcon)
6/11: Chicago, IL @ Alehorn Of Power Festival
7/23: Urbana, IL @ Central Illinois Metalfest
8/12: Schlotheim, GER @ Flugplatz Obermehler (@ Party San Festival)
