German black metal duo NYX are streaming their debut full-length album Home; listen below. The outfit issued the following on the effort:
“The album is all in all a conceptional work. The development of lyriclines, music and visual art was seen as a whole and could not have worked seperately. During the whole process from first note until the finishing touches, we kept our minds open for discovering new ways. Phorgat (Enthroned) and his great, dedicated team was the best choice for bringing our ideas alive. (And as we don’t think about putting music in genres and we’re having an uncommon member-structur, we accept polarization in order not to limit ourselves).
At the studio, we chose a song by song-approach instead of the more often used instrument by instrument-way. This was a very good workway, as we could, (with Phorgat (Enthroned) ) have our full focus on only one song at a time, watch it grow and figure out what it needs to transport the lyrical meaning perfectly”.
