about

Nihil Unbound was recorded in late June 2015 at Thump Recording Studio in Brooklyn, NY, with additional recording at Empty House in Albany, NY in July 2015. Ryan Slowey engineered and mixed it. Brad Boatright mastered it at Audiosiege in Portland, OR.

"For those that haven’t heard rumblings of this upstate New York behemoth, take note. Their newest EP, entitled “Nihil Unbound” has been unleashed and it is without a doubt thought-provoking, neck-breaking and some of the best stuff HUSH have crafted thus far." - Joseph Collins | CVLT Nation

"Minimalistic and raw, yet thoughtful and thematically complex, Nihil Unbound is absolutely superb." - Denise Falzon | Exclaim!

"This is indeed a SLAB of heavier-than-heavy doom/sludge that crushes kingdoms beneath its weight." - Celtic Frosty | Toilet Ov Hell

"HUSH. deliver a satisfying brand of molasses-thick sludge, rich in lumbering doom riffs dredged from the darkest bowels of the earth. Their intensity and aggression is offset with an expansive, exploratory edge adding a psychedelic hue to these tracks. "Nihil Unbound" is an impressive statement from HUSH. No second is wasted on this EP, every track a tantalising glimpse of the cosmic devastation that lies ahead of you. " - Charlie Butler | The Sludgelord

Track Name: ...gazes into you
watched a shadow move across the sun, as daylight wound so tightly around our bodies. fell in love with the soundless darkness that called to us in dreams. it spread into our veins and solidified. we fed it to each other and when there was no more left we finally ate ourselves. in the void the silence is beauty. the absence is peace.
Track Name: Oror
did the black soil of spring cover you, the wind wail through the temple of broken trees, and the flesh flee from your gleaming bones? was your face a simple mask of worms? or were you a prism of color in the gloom as the world sank into empty night? did you feel the light streaming out of you? could you see its edges flickering? did you etch some purpose on the grey in between what is and what seems to be? our last sunrise breaks in the east. Oror.
Track Name: Shinda Inu No Shashin
found a fragile body left out in the wind and rain, its visceral connections bled empty and pulled loose. felt the starving gaze of crows as they circled above. it stared in fear, shivering with shallow breath, and its face in the soft grass. i knelt at its side and took it in my arms, told it not to be afraid. i broke its neck and ate its memories.
Track Name: A Permanent Echo Through the Dream
Pressed down, fingers into the wound where it gaped, crooked, like a smile that could not be contained. dangerous and wide. pure and deep. suddenly aware of all that will never be. gathered the pain and let it flow through me in torrents; as color, as music, as light. felt the life pour away, thick and sweet. no last moment of awe burst through the bleed. now, i am in everything.
Track Name: Shattering the Great Chain of Being
Saw animal faces as they moved beneath the skin, like the teethed waves of a roiling ocean. Bound within a flexing and bending ontology, trapped in a dream about a dream of existing. the infinite mirror reflected no light. the eternal snake returned to devour its tail and birth anew. winding into itself as it spiraled outward, limitless and constantly growing. and with it came a sound of breaking. a sense of tearing open. a slowing, a bending. an illusion nullified, equalized, flattened, emptied, resolved into a view of Nothing.
