Nachtmystium surprised us when they kept their promise by returning to the stage in Los Angeles earlier this summer. The group have now superseded their previously-signed announced Earache Records deal by signing with Prophecy Productions and completed working on their EP Resilient, which is expected to arrive sometime in early 2018. Guitarist/vocalist Blake Judd spent the last few years rebuilding his personal life alongside attemptiong working his way back into the metal community.
“Nachtmystium is extremely honored to be working with Prophecy Productions. It is a true pleasure for me to have been able to develop a personal relationship with the Prophecy label staff in Southern California. We are able to meet face-to-face regularly and work together at creating the best possible environment for Nachtmystium to begin to rebuild it’s way back into the metal community after some very dark years and times that I have spent the majority of the last two years cleaning up the debris from. With past misdoings being corrected, new bridges built (and some old bridges rebuilt), and a few exclusive 2017 live performances under our belts, we feel as though the band has taken massive strides forward in recovering from its damaged state after my seven year run with severe heroin addiction. Those dark days are now behind me, the band and all whose lives we effect in one way or another. Onward and upward is the attitude and goal here, as Nachtmystium’s ascension returns to its past form. Expect to hear a lot of new music and news from our camp in 2018.”
While the guitarist/vocalist continues to rebuild, Nachtmystium will not only release new recordings with Prophecy, but they will reissue the group’s back catalog and their rare 7” Ep, As Made (2012).
