In his post (?) Sonic Youth career, Thurston Moore has taken a bit of an aesthetic turn: he's joined the black metal supergroup Twilight. Nachtmystium guitarist/vocalist Blake Judd, also a member of Twilight, revealed this in an interview with the 1st Five.
For their upcoming album, out this fall on Century Media, the Twilight lineup will consist of Moore, Judd, producer Sanford Parker, Stavros Giannopoulos from the Atlas Moth, Wrest of Leviathan, and Imperial from Krieg. Judd told the 1st Five that he hopes to get Isis' Aaron Turner, Lichens' Rob Lowe, and Malefic of Xasthur to also contribute.
Judd told the 1st Five:
You know Century Media could offer us a hundred thousand dollars to make that Twilight record and say: 'Blake, you get ninety percent of that money but Thurston Moore's not gonna be on the record, or, you can be on it and we'll give you ten grand and that's what you have to make it work.' And I would, I would take the ten grand and work with Thurston. That's like how much I love Sonic Youth.
Judd alluded to Moore's involvement in an interview with Brandon Stosuy for a recent "Show No Mercy" column, and explained how they met:
Pitchfork: It's the same lineup as the last record?
BJ: Pretty much. I know [the Atlas Moth's] Stavros [Giannopoulos] and Sanford will be involved and there's talk of Thurston Moore being involved. He was really interested in doing it and he's a big black metal fan. Sanford knows him because his old studio was run with a guy named Jeremy Lemos who was Sonic Youth's sound man for a long time, so that's our connection to them. Sanford had spoken to him when we were doing the last album about maybe getting involved. Timing wasn't right then, but he said he was super interested in doing something down the line. So if we add anybody else, that's who it will be.

Well, musically I can see this taking Thurston a bit away from the usual stuff most have grown to expect him to be doing (I love the Chelsea Light Moving track, but it isn't too far off from what we've heard w/ Sonic Youth/some of his side projects over the past few years).

Exciting. Yes. Always dig when musicians branch out into other genres...especially when they know how to add their own twist to it, which I have full faith Thurston is capable of doing.

Agreed, but seeing him sport corpsepaint would be even more important.

I like Nachtmystium and I like Thurston, I'm cautiously optimistic.

Boy, is Thurston burying himself in work! Would this be to stave off grief over Kim & the (possible) end of SY? (I wonder which will last longest - this or Chelsea Light Moving?) I must admit, tho', I'm looking forward to hearing Thurston shredding, black metal-style. Could be excellent therapy, both for him and us grieving SY fans...

I've been curious to hear some output from him in this vein. We've heard how BM affected T, but we've never actually heard it musically from him. I too am excited to hear this.

I donīt think artists should make something completely new in every album. I think if someone has found some very personal, own style, he can recycle it if he can add new albums something fresh. I think true creativity doesnīt born in obsession to create always something new. I also really enjoy artists who add little something new along their career, develop some kind naturally. I think for example PJ Harvey should forget his obsession to renew all the time.

Anyway I havenīt heard any interesting Black Metal-record. Itīs a long time I watched Venom 7 gates of Hell-vid and I quite like it. Maybe I should listen some Venom-album sometime in the future...

I think itīs stupid to say any music style shit, because I think no-one can listen all the albums of some music style specially if heīs the one who doesnīt like that style.
