Century Media Records are very proud to announce the worldwide signing of NACHTMYSTIUM! Very few bands today embrace their own individualism to ultimately craft something truly unique and genre defying. Enter the Chicago-based NACHTMYSTIUM who embrace the true spirit of individuality and intolerance forming solely as an outlet to express the dark musical visions and summoning’s of those involved.
The band already sailed under the Century Media label banner in the USA since 2008 and released the classic albums “Assassins: Black Meddle Pt.1” (2008) and “Addicts: Black Meddle Part II” (2010). Now, we finally look into a worldwide partnership with NACHTMYSTIUM and plan great things to come in 2012!
Originally formed in 1999 by Judd, NACHTMYSTIUM started off as a raw, primitive black metal band with a very derivative Norsk black metal influence. They released a number of records on underground labels before they turned into a new musical direction and ‘psychedelic’-era. Over the past years NACHTMYSTIUM created a genre all of its own and will develop this progress for 2012.
Founding member Blake Judd (vocals, guitars) further comments on the new deal: “We are very excited and honoured to be working with Century Media, a label whom over the years has showcased a ferocious dedication to extreme music. Grave, Tiamat, Samael and countless other bands active in the early 90’s were some of the first bands to inspire us endlessly to create our own metal music. We anticipate a great working relationship and hope to embark on a joint ascension to metal superiority together!´”
NACHTMYSTIUM are confirmed to play this year’s popular Roadburn Festival (NL / roadburn.com) on April 13th, followed by a European tour with label mates DARK FORTRESS starting April 17th. Please see below for a full list of dates.
