Watch Nachtmystium’s First Show In Nearly Five Years, Blake Judd Refunds Scammed Fans


Nachtmystium hit the stage for the first time in roughly five years over the weekend. The band’s first show back took place at the 5 Star Bar in Los Angeles, CA this past Friday, July 07th with a performance at ‘Festum Carnis‘ taking place in Wisleyville, CA the day after. Both sets saw special full-album performances. Alongside mastermind Blake Judd, the group’s revamped live lineup includes: Jacob Dye on guitars, Øystein Albrektsson on bass and Jean-Michel Graffio on drums.

Notably, the band were setup at the merch booth issuing refunds to those who ordered merch from Judd and never received it during 2012-2014. As you may recall, Judd scammed various fans for pre-orders during the height of his heroin addiction. The band commented on that over the weekend:
