The Chicago-based black metal outfit NACHTMYSTIUM is set to release their 6th full length album, Silencing Machine, next week on July 30th in Europe and July 31st in North America. Over the past few years, the group has been widely heralded for their unique brand of psychedelic, Pink Floydian black metal, earning them “album of the year” accolades and praise for Black Meddle Pt.1: Assassins (2008) and Black Meddle Pt. 2: Addicts (2010) from critics and fans alike. But as a band that’s always on the move, NACHTMYSTIUM is ready to bring their new effort back to the more traditional black metal sound found on their 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.
