Nachtmystium To Perform "Instinct: Decay" Album

On Friday, April 13th Nachtmystium will be playing a very special show at Roadburn 2012's Voivod-curated Au-delà du Réel event. For the first and only time, Nachtmystium will play the landmark USBM album "Instinct: Decay" in its entirety.

When "Instinct: Decay" was released in 2006, branded as a psychedelic extreme metal record, it was met with deeply divided feedback - some highly laudatory and some derisive.

"Nachtmystium is extremely honored to be a part of Roadburn again," says Blake Judd, "The fact that we were picked by one our idols and perhaps the most forward thinking metal bands of all time, Voivod, makes it even more that extraordinary. We decided to do something hopefully just as equally special for everyone there. We'll be playing our album, Instinct: Decay, from start to finish. We hope you enjoy it."

For more information on the festival, please visit the official Roadburn website at this location.

Obscure Early Nachtmystium Recordings Unearthed

Nachtmystium has announced that they plan to re-release some recently unearthed old material. Here's the update from the band:

"Over the past few weeks, Nachtmystium has been going through the vaults of our old demo tape masters, rehearsal tapes from all eras of the band, finding versions of songs from all the full-lengths with completely different mixes, vocals, etc. It's all different and we're having a great time digging through all of this stuff and also finding ourselves rather surprised at how much of it is actually 'listenable'. So, we're going to compile a bunch of this stuff for you fans and find a way to release it digitally ourselves or perhaps stream the stuff at various host sites. We'll post here once we've finished compiling everything and have decided on how to release the material.

"There are also plans to compile all of the bonus tracks and compilation tracks from the 2000-2004 era (which includes our split 7" releases with Xasthur and Krieg, the demo version of 'Demise' track 'Ashes To Ashes,' which only appeared on the Live Blitzkireg LP release, etc.) and to release them on a CD or LP. We may take all of the above mentioned material and just release it all in a double LP set or some kind of collectors edition box set. Whatever it is, it will be limited as this is very much material that's geared towards the people who really get into the harsher area of the bands release history, which we realize is a much smaller audience than the ones we've reached with some of our more recent offerings. Keep an eye on the Nachtmystium facebook page here for updates on this ongoing project. Metal and Hellfire!"
