Chicago psychedelic black metal band Nachtmystium have recently announced that they have entered the studio to begin recording their new album titled, Silencing Machine. The album is scheduled for release on July 31, 2012 under Century Media Records. Although the band has worked with Century Media in the past, this is their first release through their new worldwide deal.
Nachtmystium have really evolved their sound from straight up black metal to a much more experimental or even psychedelic sound on the past few albums and this recording session should be no exception to that pattern. You can read an excerpt from an interview with the frontman here.In a past interview with Deaf Sparrow, frontman Blake Judd was quoted as saying:
“What separates us from your average black metal band is that we’re NOT a black metal band, we’re a ‘do-whatever-the-fuck-we-want’ metal band and black metal happens to be what we build our foundation off of (in the case of Instinct: Decay and its predecessors), if you must categorize the rhythm sections of our music (rhythm guitars, bass and drums – the core of any album).“
