Known for a meteoric ascent to upper echelons of the extreme metal stratosphere only matched by their equally swift fall into disgrace, the story of Blake Judd’s Nachtmystium is inexorable from the equally divisive fabric of USBM. The legacy of the band’s third full-length record, Instinct: Decay, stands as a testament to the oft misunderstood and equally experimental American scene. Now, 15 years after its initial release, the Decibel Flexi Series welcomes an unearthed, never-before-heard track from the Instinct: Decay studio sessions.
Entitled “Chemical Catharsis,” Nachtmystium’s unique blend of cold Norwegian-inspired black metal and ’70s psychedelic rock are on full display, complimenting an already legendary showing for the band.
