Nachtmystium have always been an interesting beast, because whilst they’re yet to release something truly groundbreaking (although Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. 2 came pretty close), they have pushed the genre into experimental, confusing territories and have shown themselves to be keen on growing, rather than recycling, black metal’s increasingly plagiarised bedrock sounds.

From Disaronno’s whisky adverts to Andy Gray’s frantic babbling on a Sunday afternoon, the slogan “expect the unexpected” has become so old and tired it makes Zsa Zsa Gabor look positively perky. However, when it comes to describing the audio output of Illinois’ premier psychedelic metal alchemists Nachtmystium over the last few years, there really is no better phrase.

In the final part of his look at the Black Metal evolution over the past 20 years, today Tom Dare is examining the murkier and more indistinct realms of “post”-Black Metal band, as well as those bands who might’ve moved beyond the boundaries of Black Metal musically, still remain within the genre in spirit, at least….

I’ve got a straw man here, and my thumb’s got an itch only a zippo can scratch. It all started with the press release for this EP.

Americans are supposed to be rubbish at three things – football, brewing beer, and black metal. In reality, the US drew with England at the World Cup, has one of the best ranges of microbreweries anywhere in the world, and as long as they’re producing records like Woe’s second album Quietly, Undramatically, they’ve got some of the most interesting and exciting black metal bands of recent times.
