'The World Away' represents some of the heaviest, yet most melodic work we've done to date, and is also of huge lyrical and thematic importance to us both personally in terms of what we've all experienced in the past 3 years.

Nachtmystium Returns To The Stage, Offers Refunds

Its been a long, winding path for Nachtmystium from "Reign of the Malicious" back in '02 to the hey day of the "Black Meddle" albums around 2010, and onto a very public fall from grace due to addiction and fleecing fans out of cash that resulted in Century Media booting the band.

It looks like the group is finally ready to return to the scene, and efforts are in place to make amends for those who got screwed over on ordering merch and albums that never showed up.

After several years of being on hiatus, Nachtmystium returned to the stage in L.A. on July 7th, where the band offered refunds to anyone who was previously ripped off. Footage from the show can be seen below, and the group also posted on Facebook:

"Its happening....now. Nachtmystium's first show in nearly five years. The band goes on at midnight. Nice big crowd here....we are thrilled to be back and to see all of you that are here tonight. Merchandise is available AND we are issuing cash refunds / merchandise for anyone whom may have ordered between 2012 - 2014 and didn't receive an order. Just come see us at the merch table, we will get you sorted out and also refund you for the fee you were charged at the door...the show tonight is on us of you were victimized in the past." More...

The whole visual presentation was crafted by Babalon Graphics, with the cover artwork available below after a stream of new single "Black Wings Up High." The following press release was alos issued:

"The Riddle of Steel has been solved. The mountain's call answered, the earth conquered and spent. Now, the stars beckon - celestial gateways unlocked through ancient sepulchers, divine bloodlines, and the undying fires of spiritual rebirth.

"Without regard for convention, this ethereal journey is set to unorthodox tones of grandiose heavy metal. Flowing from the deepest black abyss, through brooding melancholy and into the proud glory of the rising sun, this voyage is as bold as it is divergent.

"Join our hero on a perilous quest for the eternal truth beyond the shrouds of mortality, where time and space hold no ground and the misty veil between life and afterlife is a mere illusion. Sacrifice reason and ascend - enter the Black Tower." More...
