Nachtmystium logoChicago black metal assassins Nachmystium officially announced that recently recruited full-time bassist, Reid Raley of Rwake/Deadbird has been welcomed into the ranks of the band.

 Aside from founding guitarist/vocalist and only permanent member, Blake Judd, Nachtmystium have grown in popularity over the past decade incorporating temporary lineups from release to release, and presenting a new set of musicians for nearly every tour the band has embarked on. Over recent months, Judd has recruited several other full-time members including lead guitarist Andrew Markuszewski (Avichi, Lord Mantis), drummer Charlie Fell (Lord Mantis, Avichi), and keyboard/synth engineer Sanford Parker (Minsk, Circle Of Animals), now solidifying the crew with the addition of Reid Raley on bass, making this the first “official lineup” for the band, ever.

Stated Judd and Nachmystium on Raley joining the band: “Nachtmystium, for the first time in the band’s history as a full-time touring band, has a solid live lineup that matches the studio lineup. We intend to move forward and keep this group together indefinitely. It’s taken 10 years to put together the perfect band, and now we’ve got it. So watch for us on the road starting in June and throughout the rest of the year! We anticipate that Reid’s presence will not only bring a thunderous low-end onslaught on the live stage, but also will hopefully bring in some new elements into the writing of future Nachtmystium recordings.”

Interview: Nachtmystium: Unholy Addictions

Nachmystium liveYou can’t easily capture the sounds of desolation without having some of it stick to you or having had to troll through life’s various daily underworlds of stress, addiction or mental illness at some point. Creativity is that amazing Promethean flame that can light and warm you inside or char you to cinders if it uncaps the well of demons for the unwary.

2010 was an amazing year for extreme music with many bands like Danzig’s chilling latest to Sabbath Assembly’s ethereal Restored to One or A Forest Of Stars all truly delivering the goods but perhaps nobody got as bleak and up in your guts as Nachtmystium on their monstrously powerful “Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. II.” Music hasn’t been this scary for most people since they heard Ministry’s harrowing “Psalm 69” and realized the band was completely fucking insane. Sure, if you stick your head regularly in the underground (or never leave it’s comfortable little nasty confines) you’ll come across all sorts of creepy shit out there, but Nachtmystium’s profile is rising and they are putting their weird, warped and withering sounds in people’s faces with a level of shock impact that is making black tidal waves through the metal scene with every new release. We all know some black metal “purists” hate this band, but that is retarded. Go moan in your closet alone with a dirty strip of flypaper. Personally, I think it is cool to see such a gnarly band out in average rock people’s faces and blasting the feces out of their ears with some evil, evil sounds and desolate themes.
