Nachtmystium is a psychedelic black metal band hailing from Chicago. They began releasing music in 2002, but it wasn’t until Instinct Decay in 2006 that they began to receive critical praise for their albums, leading to broader success. 2008’s Assassins: Black Meddle, Part 1 was notably highlighted by Pitchfork and MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball. They continued to release albums consistently, including the EP Waterfall, until 2012. In 2017, the band returned from hiatus to perform and release a new EP, Resilient.
