Despite debating calling it quits before finally calling it quits, Blake Judd’s black metal band Nachtmystium lives on with one final LP, The World We Left Behind, due out on Century Media on August 5. “Tear You Down” is the first song off the album, and, as is often the case with Nachtmystium’s work, it’s good — creeping, brooding and blasting, with electronics that stutter in and out over the track. Judd’s vocal delivery is whispered and, later, hysterically barked. A maniacal laugh ushers the track out.
