It appears that American experimental black metal act Nachtmystium are calling it quits for the time being. According to various news reports, the band has canceled "live activities in the foreseeable future," parted ways with guitarist Andrew Markuszewski + synth player Sanford Parker and have gone into a "state of hiatus."
Nachtmystium have released a rich array of experimental black metal throughout the 2000s. Chicago isn't exactly famous for their black metal scene, but the city must take pride in being the home of Nachtmystium, who began to gain a much larger audience after the release of their 2008 full-length, 'Assassins: Black Meddle, Part 1.'
As one of America's most celebrated modern black metal bands, the release of Nachtmystium's latest album, 'Silencing Machine,' is intoxicating news for fans. 'Silencing Machine' is set to be released tomorrow (July 31), but you can hear an exclusive live stream of the entire album right now.
American psychedelic black metal band Nachtmystium have announced that they've hit the studio to record their sixth full-length album. The upcoming album 'Silencing Machine' will be the follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2010 album, 'Addicts: Black Meddle, Part II.'
