(TheMadIsraeli brings us this premiere of a song from the new album by NYN.)
In the interest of full disclosure, the man behind the NYN project (Noyan) is both a fellow blogger (he’s a heavy hitter over at Heavy Blog Is Heavy) and a very good friend — but he’s also an insanely talented death metal maestro. Under the NYN alias he’s put out two albums so far. I keep meaning to write a feature on him and maybe I will sometime soon, but today I’m bringing you a song titled “Embrace Entropy” from NYN’s next album. The album itself is called Entropy: Of Chaos and Salt.
Both the song and the new album feature two notable collaborators, one being lead guitarist Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschläger, who was also a lead guitarist on Obscura’s latest album Akróasis, as well as the man behind Fountainhead, and Jimmy Pitts of Eternity’s End and Pitts Minnemann Project on keyboards.
NYN in general is a rather avant-garde, Middle Eastern-influenced progressive technical death metal project. And while yes, I’m plugging a friend here, I believe this is music you will definitely find worth hearing. I wouldn’t plug this music unless I thought it was great, and it is for sure.
I hope you guys enjoy this song. It’s a real trip, with plenty of technical flurries and alien, distorted riffs. But describing the NYN sound is always pretty hard, and especially so for this song. Just listen….
