Nachtmystium – The World We Left Behind

No Image Available

How I remember Nachtmystium? Well, mostly of the debut album “Reign of the Malicious” and the self-titled EP back in 2002 and 2003. Raw Black Metal in the vein of Darkthrone, Burzum and Judas Iscariot. After that Nachtmystium blended more psychedelic like influences and lots of other experiments. I lost track on the musical side of Blake Judd, but his financial activities has been widely exposed with his fake trades and deals throughout the years. It’s even came this far, that Century Media kicked him off their rooster. But let’s talk music…Although announced as the swansong of Nachtmystium, don’t be surprised this will not be the last album. “The World We Left Behind” is a mix of post-light-psychedelic-melodic-atmospheric-latest-Satyricon-esque Black Metal. And I enjoyed it as tracks like “Fireheart” and “Voyager” are definitely worth listening when talkin’ about melody and atmosphere, while “Into The Endless Abyss” is more up-tempo during most time of the song and the most “Black Metal” track on it. “The World We Left Behind”; color me surprised.
