Nachtmystium: launches part 2 of the making of 'Silencing Machine'
NACHTMYSTIUM launches part 2 of the making of 'Silencing Machine'
On July 30th in Europe and July 31st in North America, the Chicago-based black metal outfit NACHTMYSTIUM is set to release Silencing Machine, their 6th full length album and next celebrated chapter in the band's storied career. To give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Silencing Machine, NACHTMYSTIUM has now launched the second of five in-studio videos featuring exclusive footage and interviews with the band. Filmed and edited by Justin Baron, who recently did the YAKUZA documentary, part 2 spotlights guitarist Andrew Markuszewski, and it can be viewed here:
Recorded at Engine Studios with the band's own synths/electronics specialist Sanford Parker (YOB, PELICAN) handling producer duties, Silencing Machine is, as front-man/lead guitarist Blake Judd puts it, "A fuckin' black metal record". For a preview of Silencing Machine, be sure to check out the album's recently released singles: "I Wait In Hell", "Decimation, Annihilation", "Borrowed Hope And Broken Dreams" and "Silencing Machine".
