Nachtmystium Streaming New Song "Tear You Down"

"The World We Left Behind" is the final chapter in a tumultuous and controversial history of Nachtmystium.

Today you can hear a song off the forthcoming final opus, titled "Tear You Down," in the player below thanks to Pitchfork.com. Nachtmystium's Blake Judd comments:

"Tear You Down is, by far, the most vicious track both musically and lyrically on The World We Left Behind. Musically, its influences range from traditional eastern music (the primary opening riffs scale being derived from the more traditional 'middle eastern' style of music, which I have always felt had a unique and creepy vibe to it).

"I can also cite Black Sabbath and more modern black metal bands such as Deathspell Omega and Funeral Mist as all being influential in the riffing throughout the track. Lyrically it deals with the relationship between an all-controlling addiction and its relationship with its user, but from the persepctive of the substance itself rather than the users relationship with the substance.

"It is very telling of my ongoing relationship with heroin that I struggled with for over four years and viciousness that the drug unleashes mercilessly upon its user. The song tells the story of that dark world from an angle that I feel is different than the way other songs written on the topic by other artists generally approach the subject. I feel the music herein accurately encapsulates the chaos and true darkness of that sad and lonely world."

The nine song album is set for release on August 5th in North America and August 4th in Europe/Australia/New Zealand. Pre-orders are available here and the track listing is as follows:
