After roughly half a decade of silence from the stage, Nachtmystium returned for the first time this past weekend (7th) at the 5 Star Bar in Los Angeles, CA following Festum Carnis in Wilseyville, CA on the next day (8th). We have been skeptical on frontman Blake Judd’s promises for many reasons, and one includes the time he scammed fans who once received no merchandise after purchasing an order. With that said, we didn’t expect to see Judd to follow through with these two shows, however, it happened. Additionally, the band surprised us when they issued refunds to those who ordered merchandise during the years 2012-2014.
They shared the following statement on their Facebook:
“Its happening….now. Nachtmystium’s first show in nearpy five years. The band goes on at midnight. Nice big crowd here….we are thrilled to be back and to see all of you that are here tonight. Merchandise is available AND we are issuing cash refunds / merchandise for anyone whom may have ordered between 2012 – 2014 and didn’t receive an order. Just come see us at the merch table, we will get you sorted out and also refund you for the fee you were charged at the door…the show tonight is on us of you were victimized in the past. 1 hour, 37 minutes ’til stage time…. \m/”
This is a major improvement from what we have seen in the past. Footage from Friday night’s show has surfaced and you can watch it below:
