Music Moment: NYIÞ, “Hati Þá Guð Og Helgir Englar Allir”

14 Aug

Evening all!

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.
