Guest review by
Nachtmystium was started as a raw black metal band back in the year 2000. Since then, the overall sound has changed a lot. In fact, the changes were so big that it was possible to think that new Nachtmystium records were released by another band. Don't get surprised by that. When a band change their sound from black metal to psychedelic/experimental craze, it is not uncommon that they confuse their listeners. There's quite a gigantic gap between Pink Floyd-esque psychedelic touches and relentless, harsh black metal riffs. Assassins: Black Meddle, Part 1 does a great job at exposing this difference.

Awesome hints of psychadelica here and there. The title track kicks sore ass.
In that case, man is only air as well.

Duno how to feel about this one. I feel like it's very good and sucks simultaneously. A lot of potential here but the band never fully uses them.
An oh, I actually like the final track more than the others.
Giving my ears a rest from music.
