The German musician Wiedergaenger (a member of Total Negation, Vargnatt, Absolutum, and other bands) has used his solo project NACHTS as a vehicle for moving through ever-changing sonic and lyrical terrains.
Beginning in 2009, he has released five demos and EPs under the NACHTS name, traversing lyrical themes that have included encounters in nocturnal in-between worlds, abysmal stories, and ruminations on death. Black metal has provided the musical framework, but through each release NACHTS has demonstrated an impatience with convention and an eagerness to explore different recording techniques and sound aesthetics.
At last, NACHTS will be releasing a debut album in late March of this new year. Entitled Privileg, it will come our way via the cooperation of two labels, Crawling Chaos and House of Inkantation, and today we’re presenting its first single, “Du Ewiger Hund“.
