NACHTMYSTIUM Assassinating All Preconceived Notions About Where It Belongs In Music

Bob Gendron of the Chicago Tribune reports: Akin to many kids raised by music-loving parents, NACHTMYSTIUM guitarist/vocalist Blake Judd fondly recalls raiding his folks' record collection and spending hours listening to PINK FLOYD albums in his bedroom. He'd gently place the phonograph needle on classics such as "Wish You Were Here". And then he'd resume playing with Legos. Judd, at age 5, was photographed holding up a copy of FLOYD's "Dark Side of the Moon".

The English band has stayed with the DeKalb resident ever since, never more so than on NACHTMYSTIUM's new "Assassins: Black Meddle Pt. I" (out June 10), a dark homage to and heavy extension of FLOYD's 1971 opus, "Meddle". The record's fusion of psychedelic melody, dramatic pathos, moody ambience and strangulating aggression is unlike anything in the metal canon.

"The idea of 'Assassins' is that an assassin kills, gets rid of or destroys something," explains Judd. "It's not directly about us.
