The World We Left Behind is primarily an album of mournful, melodramatic rock sagas, encased in blackened-as-burned-nails sonic packaging that will give weary metal adherents an opportunity to revel in sentimental and occasionally transcendent songcraft, all in a safe, guilt-free environment--that is, one containing absolutely no clean singing.

The musicianship and production here are competent but hesitant; the band's evident ambitions could only have been truly fulfilled with help from the likes of David Gilmour, Pat Metheny, and Danny Carey--or better yet, the esteemed members of the U.S. black metal scene who contributed such confident flourishes to Nachtmystium's earlier work, earning themselves some degree of renown in the process. In their absence, Nachtmystium's music lives or dies by the quality of the writing.

As it happens, the new songs work. They're long and drawn-out, but peppered with enough hooks and twists to make for a rewarding listen. You won't find much here resembling the overt experiments in genre hopping characteristic of Addicts: Black Meddle Pt II, or the skillfully calibrated harshness of its successor Silencing Machine--at least not until the final few tracks, when the stylistic changes start stacking up more rapidly.

A while ago I read a bad review of some US black metal unit- I don't remember their name (doesn't really matter) but the crittic dismissed that American Dimmu Borger/Cradle of Filth wannabe as why "American black metal will NEVER be taken seriously!" That was four years ago. Since that the US seems to be catching up with the Norway scene. (NOT burning Churches and fatally stabbing band member helps!) And NACHTMYSTIUM's newest proves this! An excellent creative sence of melody and atmospheric music "The World We Left Behind" does borrow from the Scandinavian sound. It's so intence I was surprised to learn these guys were Yanks! With more bands (and albums) this cleaver we can successfully compete with Norway and Sweden!

Another stellar release from an amazing black metal band! Nachtmystium is not scared of straying from the traditional black metal path. A non-traditional black metal album, with a tinge of doom and psychedelic metal! Hope this is not truly their last album. These guys are a breath of fresh air!
