Nachtmystium: announces Barge To Hell appearance, four North American dates
Having recently released their critically acclaimed album Silencing Machine, NACHTMYSTIUM is now ready to bring their unique brand of black metal to fans on Barge To Hell! In regards to their upcoming appearances (as well as their cancelled North American tour with JARBOE), the band comments:
"NACHTMYSTIUM fans on the east coast: we ARE coming out for three shows in a little over a week and finish with a fourth one in Chicago! Then we will be appearing on the Barge To Hell metal cruise ship going from Miami, FL to Nassau, Bahamas and back. Playing alongside SODOM, AT THE GATES, MAYHEM, ROTTING CHRIST, MOONSPELL, MORGOTH, NAPALM DEATH and many, many many more awesome bands!"
"A full U.S. tour WILL be happening sometime between January and April, 2013. Sorry to any of you hoping to catch us on this run. The tour was doomed from the get go in a lot of ways due to things unrelated to the band or our ability to tour. Just poor timing, nothing more, nothing less. We will be doing a thorough US tour early in 2013, so look for us coming to your city soon...And anyone out in the areas we're playing in a week or so, we look forward to seeing you at the shows!"

Read on for a few reviews of NACHTMYSTIUM's Silencing Machine:
"['Silencing Machine' is] dirty, it's black metal and it's awesome." -- METAL INJECTION
"While not as outwardly experimental as 'Assassins' and 'Addicts' genre cross-breeding, 'Silencing Machine' still pushes [NACHTMYSTIUM's] sound forward, bringing the psychedelic and post-punk influences into an organic synthesis with their anthems to the welkin at midnight." -- DECIBEL MAGAZINE
"Frontman Blake Judd still smears riffs and pukes tar..." -- AV CLUB LOUD
"After releasing two albums--2008's 'Assassins: Black Meddle Part 1' and 2010's 'Addicts: Black Meddle Part 2'--that strayed significantly from the band's black metal roots, Chicago's NACHTMYSTIUM have returned to the wintry void with their latest, 'Silencing Machine.'" -- REVOLVER MAGAZINE
"NACHTMYSTIUM has always been the torchbearer when it comes to pushing black metal's boundaries to unthinkable, un-forest locales and while 2008's 'Assassins: Black Meddle Part I' and 2010's 'Addicts: Black Meddle Part II' were impressive bouts of exploratory surgeries, it is 'Silencing Machine' that is the true follow-up to NACHTMYSTIUM catalogue highlight 'Instinct: Decay'..." -- BRAVE WORDS
"...NACHTMYSTIUM has time and again shown that black metal is a many splendored thing, continuously stretching the walls of the genre to not only make waves, but create an undertow, nearly dragging their competition to drown in the darkened depths...'Silencing Machine' does not disappoint." -- METAL SUCKS
"The tracks are brutal, melodic, and powerful, merging all the best elements of NACHTMYSTIUM into one potent mix." -- HAILS AND HORNS
