Throughout, NACHTMYSTIUM once again demonstrate that a black metal band does not have to be just that. Doom rock, trance, traditional metal and even elements of pop are at play here and the inclusion of two additional musicians adds a delicious uncertainty to the live frenzy. Yes, this is clearly a band with brutal metallic power at it's heart, but with an intelligence and huge elements of improvisation in it's top-three inches to clearly distinguish themselves from the USBM pack. Whilst ultimately I'd advise those new to the band to invest in the mesmeric 'Assassins' and the genre-bending 'Addicts' albums over this, Live At Roadburn is a positive confirmation that there are few bands out there who can match Nachtmystium's ferocity and finesse.
