Assassins: Black Meddle, Pt. 1
Label: Earache Records Ltd
Blake Judd and Co. return on their fourth full length, and first for Century Media, to bring their blackened psychedelia to new frontiers. Experimenting, or "meddling," with sounds such as saxophones and ambient textures produced by keyboards, Nachtmystium's ever-changing black metal-ish sound destroys all boundaries, becoming harder to pinpoint stylistically. With so many different moods and departures, the pleading pain of "Your True Enemy" and stark tranquility of "Seasick (Part 1: Drowned at Dusk)" offer glimpses of the brutal but poetic enigma that is Assassins.
