Chicago based avant-garde black metallers Nachtmystium are officially on hiatus.
In a month's old interview for Stereogum webzine, band frontman (and only stable member) Blake Judd revealed his intention to focus on a new band outfit, Hate Meditation.
In his own words:
We are sorry to inform you that Nachtmystium have decided to cancel all their live activities in the foreseeable future. The band has parted ways with their long time lead guitarist, Andrew Markuszewski, and their recording engineer/synth player, Sanford Parker. The remaining three band members of Nachtmystium as of today are going to bring the band to a state of hiatus
