3.0 goodCrazyFool84 | January 18th 09

Though I find black metal generally off-putting in its finest forms, Nachtmystium's latest offering (and Sputnik's current whipping boy) Assassins, is a refreshing spin with some highlight worthy influences, mainly focusing on psychedelic elements. The band's greatest downfall on this record is their tendency to drone on far too long on tracks (see Pink Floyd, a trait later damned by Roger Waters himself) and lose focus for the most part. There still is enough here to keep a listener interested, provided they're not a black-metal purist that can't stand the sound of something other than raw, distorted muffles from the guitar and blast-beats from the drums.

1.0 awfulBabyss | September 28th 08

This album is very overrated. I have seen a big promotion behind Nachtmystium and some reviews saying that this is modern american black metal.I am a fan of all kinds of black metal but this album is so awful and poor in ideas that it makes you wonder why some labels and magazine promote it so much. Better have your ears as judges, than some others that say to you what is good and what is bad.
