On July 30th in Europe and July 31st in North America, the Chicago-based black metal outfit NACHTMYSTIUM is set to release Silencing Machine, their 6th full length album and next celebrated chapter in the band's storied career. Recorded at Engine Studios with the band's own synths/electronics specialist Sanford Parker (YOB, PELICAN) handling producer duties, Silencing Machine is, as front-man/lead guitarist Blake Judd puts it, "A fuckin' black metal record". For a preview of the album, be sure to check out the new track, "I Wait In Hell", here:
Silencing Machine's other previously released singles can be heard here: "Decimation, Annihilation", "Borrowed Hope And Broken Dreams" and "Silencing Machine". The complete track-listing for Silencing Machine is below.
