Progressive/technical death metal outfit NYN have announced the release of their new full-length record. The new effort will be titled Entropy: Of Chaos and Salt (artwork above) and will be released on August 11 via Vmbrella. This time around, NYN mastermind and multi-instrumentalist Noyan Tokgozoglu is joined by guitarist Tom “Fountainhead” Geldschläger (ex-Obscura, live for Defeated Sanity, live for Nader Sadek) and keyboard/synth legend Jimmy Pitts (Pitts Minneman Project, Eternity’s End, Equipoise).
Tokgozoglu said the following of the upcoming album:
“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. Jimmy and I met at an unassuming diner to plan it all out, then I contacted Tom, and the vision was born. Jimmy took my demos and added layers upon layers of keys to them, and Tom played some of the craziest solos I’ve ever heard, and 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. “
