"Worldfall", the new mini-CD from the Chicago-area psychedelic black metal group NACHTMYSTIUM, will be released as a precursor to the band's upcoming full-length, and will only be available direct from Century Media as well as iTunes. Then in June, NACHTMYSTIUM will release the massively anticipated new full-length entitled "Assassins: Black Meddle Part I". The album will be released on on Century Media Records in North America and Candlelight Records in Europe (who will also reissue the band's back-catalog for Europe). Cover art for both releases is posted on NACHTMYSTIUM's MySpace page now.
The "Worldfall" tracks were originally intended for a split with LEVIATHAN that has now been delayed due to legal issues with LEVIATHAN's record label. NACHTMYSTIUM will be recording new tracks later this year and releasing the split at a later date.
The "Assassins..." full-length was recorded in December at Sanford Parker's Volume Studios (RWAKE, MINSK, LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR, PELICAN) and showcases NACHTMYSTIUM's most prolific and expansive sounds to date. The record features Tony Laureano (ANGELCORPSE, NILE, DIMMU BORGIR) on drums, and spot appearances by members of PHARAOH and YAKUZA.
NACHTMYSTIUM has plans to embark on a full U.S. tour starting when it returns from Europe at the end of May. The tour will be roughly three weeks and end back in Chicago in late June.
