Nachtmystium – “Blood Trance Fusion” & Headlining Tour Presented By Haunting The Chapel

People like arguing about Nachtmystium. (They’re sort of M.I.A. for metal kids.) So far I’ve posted Addicts’s “No Funeral” — aka “Burzum On The Dance Floor” — and the melancholic Yakuza-assisted 8-minute closer “Every Last Drop.” “Blood Trance Fusion” is one of the more concise blasts on the collection. Like everything on Addicts, though, it offers a few wrinkles (here, sci-fi synth tweaks, gurgles). Take a listen while you read up on their Stereogum/Haunting The Chapel-presented first North American headlining tour.

Nachtmystium – “Blood Trance Fusion”

Addicts: Black Meddle Pt. II is out 6/8 via Century Media. A few weeks ago I was asked if Haunting The Chapel would want to sponsor an upcoming North American Nachtmystium tour. I asked for more details: It’s a month-long trek through the States and Canada with crusty, bluesy Georgia doom trio Zoroaster, down-tempo Florida duo Dark Castle, and expansive tri-guitar psych/sludge crew the Atlas Moth — all bands I enjoy — so I said “of course.” Here’s the itinerary as well as additional MP3s to get you ready for when the circus blows through your town.
