The Icelandic doom metal, drone rock and progressive rock act NYIÞ sees its first four releases from 2011 to 2019 united on one 2CD album, “᛬ᚢᛁᛋᚿᛁ•ᚼᛆᛏᛁ•ᚼᚱᛅ᛬”, on the fine French label Cyclic Law.
NYIÞ’s (pronounced Neeth) first four releases from 2011 to 2019 consisted of a trilogy of tapes and material from a split album.
The tape trilogy consisted of these 3 tapes:
- “Til eru hræ sem hafa aldrei verið menn og munu aldrei verða þó þau lifi enn” (2011)
- “Hati þá guð og helgir englar allir” (2012)
- “Visni þitt hold svo betur megi hæfa þeim hug sem það hýsir” (2014)
“Caput Mortum” (2018), the final release represented in this anthology, breaks thematically with the preceding tape trilogy devoid of lyrical content.
The album comes in an edition of just 300 copies in an 8-panel digisleeve with matt lamination.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
