Nachtmystium, the "psychedelic black metal" founded by Blake Judd, is apparently done (for now, at least). Though an official statement doesn't seem to exist online anywhere as the band recently deleted their Facebook page, the following update began making the rounds on April 1st:
"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 bandmembers of Nachtmystium as of today are going to bring the band to a state of hiatus."UPDATE: Judd has subsequently clarified his remarks, stating that the band is alive and well but not currently playing shows. "The band has gone through some personnel changes in the last few months and I've made the decision to cancel all of our summer tour/festival plans while the band regroups. Instead of touring, we will be writing and recording our next full length album in the coming months, to be released on Century Media world wide sometime in late 2013."
