As progressive/technical death metal project NYN moves closer towards the August 11th release of “Entropy: Of Chaos and Salt“, the time has come for another exciting song from the release to be made public. The band released “Maelstrom II: The Ignorance of the Gatekeeper“, the second part of a dynamic four-part song on the album.
Which, like the rest of the release, features dazzling performances from new members Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschläger (ex-Obscura, Fountainhead, Pitts Minneman Project) on fretless guitar and legendary key/synth musician Jimmy Pitts (Pitts Minneman Project, Eternity’s End, Equipoise) alongside NYN founding member and vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Noyan Tokgozoglu. Of special note in song premiere for “Maelstrom II: The Ignorance of the Gatekeeper” is the inclusion of a guest spot from Brandon Morris, a member of renowned prog metal act A Sense Of Gravity. Check out the single below.
Noyan Tokgozoglu had the following to say about the album NYN‘s new lineup:
“NYN was conceived as a solo project, but I’ve always wanted to do more with it. When I met Jimmy and Tom, I knew that I had to work together with them. I’ve been a fan of both of their work throughout their careers, and felt that their talent would help me take the technical death metal sound I had to the next level… With their help, we created an album unlike anything before – fast, complex and adventurous. With Entropy: Of Chaos and Salt, my aim was to be challenging, both musically and conceptually. We all pushed our creativity and technicality to the next level.”
