about

EYE OF NIX Seattle, Washington

"With crust and sludge-influenced riffs meeting black metal’s tremolo picking at the noisiest crossroads, the band sets a tumultuous backdrop for vocalist Joy Von Spain’s otherworldly, operatic banshee wails." Noisey (4-5-15).

Track Name: Elysium Elusive
A wave of all hoped would never come to pass approaches - run?
We cannot run for shelter...
Breaking upon the shore, a tide will rise,
we cannot wish for life or to remain here longer.
Within the blinking of an eye,
Death's army closes in to capture us and all our lovers.

Elysium elusive -

From birth to death
Lifetime of tedium
Struggling to transcend
This material plane

We remain, unchanged.

Give in to the great light
A warmth consumes
So close to the void
Embrace finality...

A wave of all we hoped would never come to pass approaches- run!
Within the blinking of an eye Death's army captures us all.
Track Name: We Perish
Good Night, Goodbye, we perish. Mi nombre La Muerte, je m'apelle Le Mort
We perish, we fade.
Adieu, mon Mere. adios, Mama. Good Night, goodbye, we perish.
We perish, we fade.

Horizon!
Into the sky, into the white, we open our hearts to a love affair with Fate

Horizon! Mountains!
Into black, into night, we open our eyes, terrorized
Into sky, into dawn, through a chasm, we see beyond the horizon

Dans le Noir, dans la Nuit, we open our eyes, terrorized
Into the flames, into the fire, we surrender our flesh to chaos and our end...
Track Name: Veil
I lie still as the knife, once plunged in murder's vain purpose, now useless
Nothing fair may take root
Desireless, godless, faceless, formless, as ages of stone untouched by decay
Nothing fair may take root

Second, moment, minute, hour, day, month, year, decade, era, age, eon
I precede Time and Love
Nothing fair may take root
Ruler of all worlds
In a void, in silence
before Light and Dawn are seen
Nothing fair may take root
by gods and their offspring -

and the living things. My gown entombs the young Universe - this terse vacuum where Sleep grows alongside his brother Death, twins in my black womb.
I wear no stars for adornment. I eat no flesh to abate hunger. I drink no wine to sate my thirst. Even the shining one cannot avoid me, for I mirror him in shadow.
As man beholds the sun, I am that dark sphere haunting his closed eyes. Before his birth, I am his mother. In death, he is my child again. Before your birth, I am your mother. In death, you will be my child...

Second, moment, minute, hour, day, month, year, decade, era, age, eon
I precede Time and Love
Nothing fair may take root
Ruler of all worlds
In a void, in silence
before Light and Dawn are seen
Nothing fair may take root
by gods and their offspring.

In a void, eternally silent, perfect stillness unknown to Man. Never born, ever in sweet stasis, my veil Mystery. In death you will be my child again...
Track Name: Turned to Ash
See in my eyes, too much to bear/The fire's died and turned to ash/here I fall away/No golden dawn, no paradise/the slate is clean, the well is dry/I fall...Last breath, come unto me! O Death, come!
Track Name: Shroud
Destroy your prison/Tear down these walls/See now, see how I exact my revenge/Witness your loves clothed in the ugly shroud of death/You'll see all you love will rot to ruin
