We're still a ways out from the new Nachtmystium album Silencing Machine, but with every new track the band puts out in advance of the release I find myself getting more and more antsy. Seriously, so far everything the band has put out has met and even exceeded my expectations because while I'm a fan of their earlier more "tr00" black metal stuff, I'm a bigger fan of the more experimental and insanely unique black metal they were doing on Assassins: Black Meddle Part I and Addicts: Black Meddle Part II and so far what I've heard strikes an excellent balance between their earlier and newer releases.

Silencing Machine arrives July 31 via Century Media Records.
