Nixil Announces Sophomore Effort, Reveals First Single

Posted by Corinne Westbrook in News on May 23, 2023

The band’s mammoth Prosthetic Records’ debut ‘From the Wound Spilled Forth Fire’ arrives later this summer.

Maryland based black metal affront Nixil is preparing to disentomb their latest offering, From the Wound Spilled Forth Fire, the inaugural release on new label home Prosthetic Records. Today, the band has shared the first bleak taste of the upcoming release, new single and video “Collapsing the Poles”.

“’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, the band elaborates on the upcoming release. “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.” 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 the new single, the band shares: “’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). 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.”

Heavily rooted in spiritualism and the personal liberation found in chaos, Nixil sets to set themselves apart in the black metal scene, where the album “treads a spiritual path toward liberation through abyssal exploration, from the microcosmic to the macrocosmic.

From the Wound Spilled Forth Fire is due out August 25th. Pre-orders are available HERE.
