Nixil sign to Prosthetic Records, announce album, share video
Baltimore-based black metal band Nixil has signed with Prosthetic Records for their sophomore album, From the Wound Spilled Forth Fire, set to release on August 25. The band has also released the lead single and music video, "Collapsing the Poles."
Speaking on the album announcement, NIXIL comments:
"From the Wound Spilled Forth Fire is the manifestation of will of five individuals in collaboration, clawing toward catharsis and escape from the oppressive grasp of this rotting society. It is about finding power through adversity and the increase of spirit that can be gained through the intentional death of what our feeble human minds perceive as 'Self.'
advertisement"It is also a magickal act, containing hymns of rebellion and strength in honor of the teachers and muses along the ever winding path toward liberation."
Of Collapsing the Poles, the band adds:
"Collapsing the Poles is our siren song, heralding the breaking of the chains of demiurgic oppression through the recognition and eradication of the restrictive tendencies within the self (microcosm), allowing for the advancement of adversarial energy outward toward the seemingly unshakably oppressive forces of That Which Is (macrocosm)."
advertisement"It is also an invocation of Void, creating a sacred space for all that which we seek to put out into the world, and a reminder that even in the moments where it seems unreachable, freedom is always worth fighting for."
