Nachtmystium: TO PERFORM 'INSTINCT: DECAY' IN ITS ENTIRETY AT VOIVOD'S CURATED ROADBURN 2012 EVENT
NACHTMYSTIUM TO PERFORM 'INSTINCT: DECAY' IN ITS ENTIRETY AT VOIVOD'S CURATED ROADBURN 2012 EVENT
On Friday, April 13th, NACHTMYSTIUM will be playing a very special show at Roadburn 2012's Voivod-curated Au-delà du Réel event. For the first and only time, NACHTMYSTIUM will play their landmark USBM album Instinct: Decay in its entirety.
When Instinct: Decay was released in 2006, branded as a psychedelic extreme metal record, it was met with deeply divided feedback -some highly laudatory and some derisive. Five years later, the record sounds as good as ever and it seems clear that the derision was merely the backlash of closed-minded black metal fans. Change turned out to be a good thing - now Instinct: Decay is hailed as an enormous milestone in USBM history.
In fact, along with Leviathan, Krieg, and Wolves In The Throne Room, NACHTMYSTIUM are considered instrumental in forging a unique musical identity for the USBM scene. This is a unique chance to hear the entire album at this one of a kind show, something definitely not to be missed!
"Nachtmystium is extremely honored to be a part of Roadburn again", says Blake Judd, "The fact that we were picked by one our idols and perhaps the most forward thinking metal bands of all time, Voivod, makes it even more that extraordinary. We decided to do something hopefully just as equally special for everyone there. We'll be playing our album, Instinct: Decay, from start to finish. We hope you enjoy it."
