"NIHIL" is the second album for Cyclic Law from Bulgaria's SHRINE. The album was completed in September'2013 as a commemoration of SHRINE’s 10th year anniversary (IX.2003 - IX.2013) and brings together seven tracks composed over the last 5 years. A very personal and poignant work that differs significantly from other SHRINE releases, being a lot heavier in atmosphere with a lingering gloom and largely saturated with negativity. Exploring the burden of the human ego from a personal point of view, it aims to expose a different look upon Freud's "Death Drive" theory. Delve into the depths and let Shrine guide you through it's singular shadow world. "A gift for you, who wake up in the middle of the night and know you couldn't live with yourself any longer."

Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. MorKroM
Close your eyes and be transported to an ancient and otherworldly druidic sanctuary. The walls of these caves do talk - and they speak of countless centuries-old rites, rituals and chants. Outside a storm rages, the wind carrying with it the scent of the earth, sky and sea. If this sounds like someplace you'd like to be, don't miss this captivating and evocative album. Currently my personal favorite from Cryo Chamber. nite_traveler
