Nachtmystium

Long Island Press: I’ve heard some traditionalists who deride Nachtmystium as populist black metal-does that mindset ever influence your artistic choices?

Blake Judd of Nachtmystium: I don’t care what anyone says about my band. Nachtmystium is my life, it’s all I do, and any f**king asshole black metal douche bag who wants to question me or my integrity can feel free to do so right to my face if he feels so inclined. I and the four people who travel with me six to seven months out of the year are total extremists in our lifestyles and there is nothing “fancy” or “glamorous” about our lifestyles as members of Nachtmystium, We just happen to get paid enough these days to keep gas in our van (note, VAN) and the wheels on it turning and maybe pay a month or two of rent each after a tour. If someone thinks that is like living some rock star lifestyle, think again.

Nachtmystium headlined one of two shows at The Studio at Webster Hall on Wednesday, 9/15 with help from a killer touring party that included Zoroaster, The Atlas Moth, and Dark Castle. The foursome do it again on Sunday (9/19) when the bands take on Knitting Factory (tickets).

In related news, the great Dark Castle have completed recording their new LP at Electric Audio in Chicago with Sanford Parker. The follow-up to Spirited Migration will be released by Profound Lore on CD, with At a Loss (their former home) doing the vinyl honors. Spirited Migration is FINALLY out now on vinyl and available on all of their tour stops. Look for it!
