WE ARE GOING TO EAT YOU!


The bad news...

Blake Judd of Nachtmystium, etc. fame has returned to social media after a lengthy absence. Back in 2014 Judd‘s now apparent past struggles with substance abuse saw him rip off numerous fans with bogus pre-orders, among other less than savory acts, eventually landing him in jail. Judd himself claims to now be sober and offered the following to his upset past fans:

“I went to rehab (somehow, I survived) and now live in another state, have been sober for a few months, am employed and have absolutely nothing to do with music anymore nor do I wish to. My girlfriend has nothing to do with drugs at all or metal at all, so you’re barking up the wrong tree there. She knows all about all of this though and understands that it all happened and it is what it is. Today I am just trying to be healthy and happy and the farthest thing from the person I used to be, taking it one day at a time.

I am truly sorry for anyone who fell victim to my behavior when I was in the throes of addiction, and when I am capable of making amends to those people, I will. Harassing me or my loved ones here will do nothing to fix anything. Fortunately I survived and I intend on doing the right thing in places where I did wrong in the past. That’s all I have to say. Direct anything any of you want to say at me. Don’t bother other people who have nothing to do with any of this.”


Having been called out for the vague nature of his statement of making amends, Judd replied to another Facebook user:

“…When I am capable means when I am capable. I am not going to promise anyone anything when I dont have the means to follow through on it. Right now, I dont have those means. You have no idea what Im coming back from, kid. And if I wasnt who I am, you wouldn’t care nor would anyone else. Every junkie lies, cheats and steals from someone….I’m no different.

Not pretending to be. But what I’m not today is full of poo poo. And I’d be full of poo poo to say I am going to start paying back debts when I don’t have the ability to do it. My road back to normalcy is going to be a long one. Some day though, I will do something with the list I have compiled of the people whom I owe money to for merch. Until then, yeah, it’ll be ‘when Im capable’.”

Sweet maybe sometime in 2020 I'll actually get any of the merch I gave him ~$100 for. (Just kidding it's never going to happen)

I'm stoked to see Absu though. Their self-titled is still one of my favorite all time albums. And I could feasibly see them in both Charlotte and Raleigh!

He's claimed to be off drugs before iirc, he's ripped off enough people that I can't imagine anyone is going to want to deal with him regardless of what he says.

Not bad. Distorted vocals (or whatever term it is) are not quite my thing but the pace changes and guitar was alright. Post the rest of the album when its up. I'd like to hear it all the way through.

Here's a cool one man BM project I found on Bandcamp the other day and enjoyed quite a bit. It's nothing incredibly ambitious, but it all feels solid and well put together, and the recording quality's good for a one man outfit.

Ooh this is quite nice, yes.

This from the label that also signed another solo atmoblack project called Mare Cognitum

E: And speaking of them, this release is also coming up, and it's all . Has a bit of a rawer DSO vibe.

Aetergap is releasing the first five Panphage releases on a CD with some real nice presentation. Panphage is great and this is a good way to get a big chunk of their discography in one release.

Also, they have another split tape out this one with Thul.

Is anyone going to Migration Fest? It's a collaboration between Gilead Media and 20 Buck Spin happening in Washington state this August. Tickets are going pretty fast.

I don't really participate in any online metal communities, so I'm the oddball traveling across the country just for this without knowing a single person going and I honestly couldn't be more excited. There are still a handful of bands yet to be announced, but a lot of people are excited just for seeing Panopticon live from what I can tell. The feedback on the Facebook page for the event has been pretty exciting to witness.

drat, I'm envious. I live in Madison, so I'm pissed I never knew about Gilead Media until the last year or so when I started really broadening my metal horizons. Makes me really sad to think of what I might be missing out on now let alone what's happened before. Still, I couldn't pass this one up!
