A maelstrom of hatred and loathing is what this reissued six-track disc from 2002 offers, as Nachtmystiumís self-titled diabolic decree is thrust upon your hapless soul. Then functioning as a full-fledged group instead of todayís one-man band output, this collection is slightly more organic than what youíll hear from todayís version of the group. Eerie wind-tunnel induced distortion, incessantly pounding drums, tortured guttural utterances, rapid-fire guitars, and a savagely raw production are what make this CD not only endearing to the corpse painted contingent, but scary for the rest of the world in general and in turn, a triumphant black metal album through and through.
