    Was Ist Das?, the label that released the new Isengrind tape (which is pretty good, IMO) said in an email that it'll be releasing a new NSB tape at some point. That'd be much appreciated after that drought we had.

    their new album ' The Night Country ' is simply beautiful. since i'm listening to it i have to think about the minimalistic text-based game ' A Dark Room ' i'm passionately playing since weeks. ' The Night Country ' sounds like the perfect soundtrack to this adventure - absolutely amazing...

    @objectivetaste, doesn't exist online AFAIK. Hell, I have slight doubts about it existing in the first place. I'd love to be proven wrong, though. Also, they have FINALLY released a new album, The Night Country, limited to only 50 copies though... hopefully I can find one soon, seeing as how it's only available on their tour in Europe.

    their music sounds like you were preparing for a trip to some faraway, plague ridden land. you know you will never come back. there is a railway station scene, a person you love is there to bid you farewell. they gently wave a snow white tissue, suddenly, it's carried away by the wind, camera starts slowly following it

    Owing to the fact that they are so easily the greatest band ever, I often forget that they are rather unknown.

    Seems like there was an NSB release due on Southern Records' Latitude series in September last year - http://blog.southern.com/release-schedule/ - but nothing yet. And does anyone know if the collab with Ben Nash is still a work in progress? According to Blackest Rainbow they were recording together after the UK tour in 2012...

    They may not be the band for you earthrot_. It's hard for me to think of a more consistent and distinctive band. The usual accusation is that all their albums sound the same.

    Probably the most inconsistent band that I've listened to in a long while, there are so much material I cannot stand. Granted I haven't listened to everything they've put up, but still, I'm about halfway through their discography and there has been maybe one good album, rest has been experimental shit which is really hard to dig.

    According to the description on last.fm in the concert they're performing in the Czech Republic, they're coming out with stuff on Southern Records and Beta-Lactam Ring Records, as well as reissuing Dance with Ba Da Bing and Students of Decay. I sure hope so, but I didn't see any mention on any of those sites, so I'll believe it when I see it. And I feel like they're kinda past that phase, unfortunately, as they seem to do a style for a while and then do something new. I image any new stuff will be a lot like their early stuff mixed with Beyond the Veil. And I'd like reissues of those two, I have a nice copy of Slayer, but my copy of Wheel is kinda icky.

    Wouldn't be surprised if in 2014 (after a year of not releasing anything new), they would suddenly come with something like 10-20 CD collection (or at least a 3 CD EP) filled with psychedelic drones in vein of recently reissued "Daughter of Darkness" or their previous "long" drony stuff (such as "Laurie Bird" or "Night Corecion Into the Company of Witches"). Wish they would re-release "Slayer of the King Hell" and "The Wheel of Sharp Daggers" in some digital/CD format though.
