NACHTMYSTIUM recently licensed its "Eulogy IV" opus to Ireland's Invictus Productions exclusively for the European market. Currently signed to Century Media in the USA and Candlelight in Europe, the band agreed a special license deal with Invictus for the currently out-of-print album.
Originally formed in 1999 by Blake Judd (vocals, guitars), NACHTMYSTIUM started off as a raw, primitive black metal band with a very derivative Norsk black metal influence. They released a number of records on underground labels such as Regimental Records and Autopsy Kitchen Records, etc. before delivering "Eulogy IV" in 2004, ushering in a new musical direction and "psychedelic" era.
In 2006, the group released "Instinct: Decay", which drew massive amounts of press compared to previous efforts, landing in numerous top-ten lists in such major publications as Metal Maniacs, Unrestrained, etc. The album also scored the #4 slot on Decibel magazine's "album-of-the-year" poll.
Throughout the course of the past three years, NACHTMYSTIUM toured heavily with the likes of 1349, BORIS, GOATWHORE, SUNNO))), ANGELCORPSE and WATAIN, among countless others. They also co-headlined the Overcast Music and Arts Festival in June of 2006 and most recently performed on the main stage at this year's renowned New England Metal and Hardcore Festival.
