NIXIL shared new single and music video ‘Abyss Unto Abyss’

US black metal quintet NIXIL has shared a new track and music video, Abyss Unto Abyss, from their upcoming album, From the Wound Spilled Forth Fire. Abyss Unto Abyss is the third single to be taken from their sophomore full-length, with the music video once again produced by the Baltimore, Maryland band.

Speaking on the single and music video release, NIXIL comments:

Abyss Unto Abyss was written during a bout of intense insomnia resulting in a state of comatose lucidity. It is a channeled poem describing how to use these sometimes maddening altered states of consciousness to trigger personal evolution and explore those vast territories beyond our mundane existence.”

Having made their presence known with their 2021 debut, All Knots Untied, NIXIL has steadily garnered a loyal following through live appearances across the United States – sharing stages alongside Hulder, Evoken, Molder, Yatra, and an appearance at Maryland Deathfest 2022 along the way. Time spent on the road served to sharpen their collective musicianship and fully realise NIXIL‘s desire for collaborative unity and authenticity within the group ahead of From the Wound Spilled Forth Fire‘s creation.

NIXIL‘s scorched earth approach to black metal’s sonic extremities offer a radical alternative to secular approaches to, and readings of, their craft. Where All Knots Untied was an introductory affair for the quintet, 2023 sees the band further expand upon concepts of chaos gnosticism, ego-death, self-empowerment and freedom.

After solidifying their line-up in its current form, with the arrival of guitarist / backing vocalist Alden, NIXIL opted to record From the Wound Spilled Forth Fire live at Magpie Cage Recording Studio with J. Robbins. The resulting six songs seethe with a frenzied despair, whilst more ominous passages breathe with a disquieting existential terror in every percussive and rhythmically meditative trance, exactly as the band intended to capture before handing mastering duties to James Plotkin.

NIXIL‘s latest offering is more than invocation and manifestation alone, From the Wound Spilled Forth Fire is an invitation for those shackled by earth and flesh to dispel from regressive human made traditions and misplaced guilt and shatter the illusion of a self.
