Nachtmystium Returns To The Stage, Offers Refunds To Fans Who Never Received Merch

Its been a long, winding path for Nachtmystium from “Reign of the Malicious” back in ’02 to the hey day of the “Black Meddle” albums around 2010, and onto a very public fall from grace due to addiction and fleecing fans out of cash that resulted in Century Media booting the band.

It looks like the group is finally ready to return to the scene, and efforts are in place to make amends for those who got screwed over on ordering merch and albums that never showed up.

After several years of being on hiatus, Nachtmystium returned to the stage in L.A. on July 7th, where the band offered refunds to anyone who was previously ripped off. Footage from the show can be seen below, and the group also posted on Facebook:

“Its happening….now. Nachtmystium’s first show in nearly five years. The band goes on at midnight. Nice big crowd here….we are thrilled to be back and to see all of you that are here tonight. Merchandise is available AND we are issuing cash refunds / merchandise for anyone whom may have ordered between 2012 – 2014 and didn’t receive an order. Just come see us at the merch table, we will get you sorted out and also refund you for the fee you were charged at the door…the show tonight is on us of you were victimized in the past.”
