Nachtmystium Album Delayed, Bassist Zion Meagher Departing

NACHTMYSTIUM has posted the following blog on their MySpace site, giving an update on the recording of "Assassins" and announcing the departure and replacement of their current bassist of three years, Zion Meagher:

"First and foremost, we've completed tracking for our new record, "Assassins", to be released on Century Media in N. America and Candlelight Records in Europe. The record has been a complete success thus far, and we anticipate that mixing sessions (scheduled for the end of this month) will pull everything together for the next chapter in our black book of music. Expect more info, a finished track to be posted, and a release date soon! The original release date of April 1st, 2008 has been pushed back due to the delays in mixing.

"Unfortunately, we're sad to say that "Assassins" will stand as Zion Meagher's final work with Nachtmystium. Zion has parted ways with the Mystium to pursue his personal life and his own new musical project, Anti-Human Thesis. Our touring schedule was becoming very conflicting with his personal career outside of music and it was becoming more and more apparent that he was not going to be able to continue on with us as a full-time member, which this band is in desperate need of with our busy schedule we have planned for ourselves in the near future. We salute him for over 3 years of dedicated service, through thick and thin with this band, and we wish him all the best with his new project.

"We are proud to announce that Jon Necromancer (ex-USURPER / current KOMMANDANT) will be joining us as a session member on our European tour this May! Beyond this tour, however, there will be an active pursuit for a new, permanent bass player for Nachtmystium. We are currently preparing to hold auditions in the coming months. Interested parties, feel free to contact us. Extensive touring, and a full-time commitment is expected of any potential member, so if touring / traveling is out of the question for you, this is not the gig for you. 21+, must have your own (good) gear, a drivers license, valid passport, no criminal background, and the willingness to commit 100% to this project exclusively are a must. Serious applicants only."
