Blake Judd Releases a Plethora of Nachtmystium News
First, Judd released this appropriately-bleak album art by Brooke Witchery…
…and then he took to the comments section, where he finally revealed which other musicians contributed to the record, and even revealed the album’s tentative release date:
Finally, Judd had a few less-than-kind words for his former bandmates in Twilight, who recently released their new (and final) album without Judd:
Okay, so here’s the thing: I love, love, LOVE Nachtmystium, but by all accounts, Blake Judd is a hot mess. A talented hot mess, sure, but a hot mess. He releases information (and, uh, sometimes music) without first consulting with his label, he makes bandmates feel uneasy (to put it mildly)… he’s got a lot of issues, y’know? So I would not put that release date into my calendar before Nachtmystium’s label, Century Media, confirms it; nor would I assume that the other members of Twilight kicked Judd out of the group because of “their true colors” or whatever.
That being said… I am excited to hear this Nachtmystium album, whenever it comes out. After all — whatever it is Judd is struggling with, it’s never hurt the quality of his art in the past. We’ll let you know more as soon as we do.
