Guest review by

Before I start with anything here, I have to say I'd be very grateful if someone could enlighten me as to how exactly do I pronounce this band's name. I mean, Nachtmystium? Couldn't they just go with The Evil Boys from Illinois (catchy, eh?) or something? Still, I suppose it's a ton easier to remember than, say, Aasdgoihasdghexekul . Anyway, enough of these shenanigans. These guys may be familiar to you for some of their more recent releases, where they largely incorporate many non-metal elements into our beloved genre of black metal, sometimes even up to the point where it no longer sounds like the style they originated in. However, this does not happen on Instinct: Decay.

Rating: 7 Decent effort, not really my thing but I enjoyed the first two songs a lot.

  Had just the pleasure of testing my blue vinyl copy of this album. Damn, it's good shit. Besides the leads and solos I don't really feel the album to be THAT psychedelic but who cares. Really solid black metal.
