Not much time on my hands tonight, so I’m going to go straight into it. Everyone’s favourite merchants of wail and doom are back. NYIÞ had a storming set at this year’s Mayhemisphere, where they amazed and freaked out audiences in equal measure. And with this in mind, they’ve released their latest aural virus, a track titled “Hati þá guð og helgir englar allir” or “I Hate you god and all the heavenly angels”. At least i think that’s what it means.
Droning violins and pitiless chanting in the mould of “Tabula Rasa” Einstürzende Neubauten and a whole host of Death/apocalyptic folk acolytes, but still with a sulphurous whiff of black metal virtuosity to it. you can feel the occult energies swirl around your feet and flow under the doors while this plays . And dig those chains!
These guys and The Heavy Experience in a double-header gig. Something i would happily pay a lot of money to watch and listen.
