Niya
Head Held High (Candlelight)

By: Mike SOS

An incessant metal assault is what Polish pummelers Niya deliver on its debut 12-track release. These days, brutal is a term that gets tossed around like a frisbee, yet it definitely applies to the wreckage that this quintet leaves in its wake. Sounding a bit on the grindcore side of the fence, with a slew of death metal riffs and rapid-fire drums invading your eardrums, Niya condenses the aural assault of Meshuggah down to about two and a half minutes per song, without sacrificing an ounce of aggression. For an industrial strength kick in the ass, Niya will definitely suit the purpose.
