Elusive Icelandic stalwarts NYI_ present "??????????????". We've collected NYI_'s (pronounced Neeth) first four releases from 2011 to 2019; a trilogy of tapes and material from a split album, into a unique whole. Cohesion is woven throughout the tape trilogy by a thread of curse-poetry. "Til eru hræ sem hafa aldrei verid menn og munu aldrei verda _ó _au lifi enn" is a perversion of a nationally beloved poem on death acceptance. "Hati _á gud og helgir englar allir" is an invocation from a 17th century grimoire, petitioning God, alongside a multitude of other natural and super-natural entities, to hate the utterer's enemies. "Visni _itt hold svo betur megi hæfa _eim hug sem _ad hysir" is a toast to the misfortune of the most deserving; literally 'Thy flesh wither, the better to suit the mind it houses'. "Caput Mortum", the final release represented in this anthology, breaks thematically with the preceding tape trilogy. Inward-looking and devoid of lyrical content, it's two offerings, whose titles may be translated as Root and Maelstrom respectively, allude to sub-surface phenomena, stability and churning chaos.
