NACHTMYSTIUM entered Belle City Sound in Racine, Wisconsin in June with engineer Chris Wisco to begin recording its new album for an early 2014 release. Judd stated about the band's next effort: "Totally new approach in all ways this time around… new studio, new engineer, new players…

"This is going to be interesting to see how this goes. I'm producing the whole thing myself and have only hired a bass player and a drummer to do the album with the intentions of doing almost everything else myself and most likely writing the entire record.

"[We are] locking ourselves in a studio an hour and a half outside of Chicago for four weeks (longest session we've ever had),coming home for 10 days once primary tracking is complete and then heading back up on August 5th – 14th to finish vocals, overdubs and mixing. Have a great team on board consisting of John Porada from TERMINATE on bass guitar and Sam Shroyer from HATE MEDITATION and VITANDUS on drums.

"[I am] expecting a very different outcome in all ways with this record.

"[I am] excited to be totally isolated from my day-to-day life for the first time while making an album since 'Eulogy IV' in 2004. Should be interesting…"

NACHTMYSTIUM's sixth album, "Silencing Machine", was released in July 2012 via Century Media Records. The CD, which is described by Judd as "a fuckin' black metal record," was recorded at Engine Studios with the band's own synths/electronics specialist Sanford Parker (YOB, PELICAN) handling production duties.
