NACHTMYSTIUM have been dwelling within the U.S. black metal underground for a period of time in which this enigma have clearly spearheaded themselves as one of North Americas most prominent acts within the scene. Where in the beginning, we witnessed NACHTMYSTIUM portray a bleak sound-picture by incorporating the many facets that became synonymous with the brand of traditional, raw and primitive black metal that was surfacing from these shores, it was quite evident that the promise that such an act showed in its early stages, was just a mere warning of what was inevitably to come. Surely though, NACHTMYSTIUM have always shown their distinct histrionics on their interpretation on how they liked to portray their black metal art. Through morose and mournful hymns that displayed a scenario where sadness and hatred were the two dominating emotions that bled from band leader Azentrius instrument, this vision that he has conjured up many years ago, has reached its phoenix with the surfacing of the latest NACHTMYSTIUM observation, Instinct:Decay. With outside influences such as PINK FLOYD (a prominent influential artist consistent within NACHTMYSTIUMS repertoire, EARTH, and even SUNN 0))) (an act in which NACHTMYSTIUM have shared the stage with), such influences that have been incorporated within the NACHTMYSTIUM sound have helped take this bands sound to new levels and new perspectives respectively. Overall, Instinct:Decay will future solidify NACHTMYSTIUMS position within the U.S. black metal elite alongside other black metal artists as XASTHUR, LEVIATHAN, KRIEG, and THRALLDOM, artists in which NACHTMYSTIUM share a comradeship with, all while re-defining, and re-shaping, the future of black metal.
