Bunch.TV conducted an interview with mastermind Blake Judd of Illinois-based extreme metallers NACHTMYSTIUM on April 16, 2010 at the Turock club in Essen, Germany. Watch the chat in two parts below.
NACHTMYSTIUM's new album, "Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. II", was released on June 8 via Century Media Records.
NACHTMYSTIUM filmed a video for "Every Last Drop" — which is being described in a press release as "a somber but mammoth eight-minute psychedelic nightmare that closes out the extremely unique album" — last week in New York City, with direction by Seldon Hunt and Jimmy Hubbard.
"Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. II" was recorded at Volume Studios (RWAKE, MINSK, LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR, PELICAN) in Chicago with producer Sanford Parker (MINSK). The band also enlisted the talents of Wrest (LEVIATHAN, LURKER OF CHALICE, TWILIGHT) to lay down all drum tracks, as well as Will Lindsay (WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, MIDDIAN) to handle the bass duties on the CD.
There is also a limited-edition, double gatefold vinyl featuring the bonus track "Macrocosmic" and an iTunes-exclusive bonus track, "Every Last Drop", remixed by James Plotkin (KHANATE, PHANTOMSMASHER). Artwork was created by Jimmy Hubbard and Seldon Hunt and the album features guest vocals by Bruce Lamont (YAKUZA) and guitar solos by Russ Strahan (PENTAGRAM) and Matt Johnson (PHARAOH).
