Nachtmystium Streaming Title Track Off New Album "Silencing Machine"

Over the past few years, Nachtmystium has been heralded for a unique brand of psychedelic black metal, earning "album of the year" accolades and praise for "Black Meddle Pt.1: Assassins" (2008) and "Black Meddle Pt. 2: Addicts" (2010) (reviewed here).

But as a band that's always on the move, the Chicago outfit is ready to bring 6th full length album, "Silencing Machine," back to the more traditional black metal sound found on break-through album, "Instinct: Decay" (2006). Recorded at Engine Studios with the band's own synths/electronics specialist Sanford Parker (Yob, Pelican) handling Producer duties, "Silencing Machine is," as front-man/lead guitarist Blake Judd puts it, "A fuckin' black metal record."

"Silencing Machine" is set to be released on July 30th in Europe and July 31st in North America via Century Media Records. For a first preview of what's to come, the album's artwork (created by Rebecca Clegg), title track, and an exclusive interview with Judd are now available on Pitchfork.com's "Show No Mercy" at this location.

Nachtmystium will be playing a few shows in Colorado and Chicago around the "Silencing Machine" release. All upcoming tour dates are below.
