about

Nythis Cleveland, Ohio

Hailing from northern Ohio, this trio began as a project to bring a new view on the metal scene. With a mix of styles, including groove, doom, death, and hardcore, they bridge the gap and create a sound that moves beyond genres. Nikk Bragg as vocalist, Mike Winchell as the strings, both bass and guitar, and Andrew Anderson on masterful percussion. Look for us on the scene this fall. ... more

Track Name: Dream Sequence Ravager
Could not protect you
Fate crumbles my heart
Resurrected in memoriam
In nights waking hours

My dreams
haunted
lifeless eyes

When the night beckoned your love away
Our dreams dashed in errant fog
mist of death sapping inner sight
Vision cloud, wrenching grief to


I should have been the one left in death
Breathless and hopeless mourning no one

Tearing forth rebirth
Cursed time left here on earth
Weight of this emptiness
Drags hope into despair

Joining you
In Night
Nothing left


Now I stand
On the precipice
Staring Down
Into Black Abyss

On Night's Plutionian Shores
Nightmares of your face, so pale
Laying on Steel so cold
Hands grasping at my soul

These dreams
of you
end

When the night beckoned your love away

Our dreams dashed in errant fog

mist of death sapping inner sight

Vision cloud, wrenching grief to hate
Track Name: Failed Machines of Flesh
Forgotten Dead in life
as they rot beneath the earth
All we are, failings
machines of flesh
Through absolution of death
Our words become entombed
Existance is closing with eyes
Semblance of man fades alone

These failed machines of flesh
Exist only for a moment in time
When that moment ends
Light dies with closing eyes

I am waiting for torment to come
From your word, your lying god
Preach eternal from this flesh
Now awaiting the discordant son

Diaspera of lying men
Hidden fears, truth is revealed
Silence of Earth,
recording no truth
I await the torment now
Existence closes with eyes
Man will fade alone

And we all rot alone
And fade into the earth
your blood and bone will fail you now
as dust and earth entomb

Time is limited to one life
No more can be given or taken
Do with your punishment as you will
Exist only to survive

I am waiting for torment to come
From your word, your lying eyes
Preach eternal from this flesh
There is nothing left but sleep
Diaspera of lying men
Hidden fears, truth is revealed
Silence of deepest Earth,
recording no truth
I await your torment now

These systems will fail
Then the dreams fade to black
Into the night, only alone
Crawling forth to endless sleep
Through absolution of death
Our words become entombed
Existance is closing with eyes
Semblance of man fades alone

Existence is only to survive
Track Name: The Wake
Mourners descending
At the calling hour
life now cut so short
no matter how we plead
denied this ascension
holy arbiter
give your self away
to an uncaring god

when you close your eyes
one final time
did you think he was there?
Devotion to above
Grants no certainty
Only give long lament

You chose to carry
This anchor beget
A life of servitude
one with no reward

Why is your god so silent when you call out?
When all this
sacrifice
earned you
nothing

You were the one we held so closely now
Resilience
Discipline
Struggle forth
To the end

Why is your god so silent when you call out?

No one hears
The failure of
Divinity
Left in the dark


Faith now had failed you
When is needed most
Never gave me hope
But sapped your god within
We were the creators
Denied this illusion
Renounce hopelessness
And arise anew
Track Name: Beneath the Oak
Beneath this twisting oak
Brambles take Daylights Rays
Blood runs through my smile
As my crown becomes my noose

With severed wings, I rebelled
Taken by will to defy
Souless and lost in the void
I chose beneath black skies

These brambles wrench, unheeding
Laments and words of loss
Tighten to pull me downward
I crumble, returning to earth

Hanging
from dreams of life
Drifting
On barbed reprisals
Leaving in silence
And yet unturned
I choose to burn

I cull myself
Waited for this
So endlessly
Now I join the past
Where suffering ends

My lifeless corpse, now sleeping
Wretched flesh of failure
Upon the earth, resting
Beneath the twisted oak

Existance fades, now rotting
As Nature takes her claim
All turn to dust, in the end
Yet now I am content
Track Name: The Iris Void
The cold has reached into me
Machines of flesh now failing
distant reflection over passive surface
the light now blocked as despair blooms

Your silhouette stares
As I reach through the frost
Forsaking myself
Within the light of day
Yet you remain so still
All this time has passed
Yet your eyes still pierce

Empty eyes stare mockingly
Aspirations left to wallow
My wretched lamentations
reflected in the iris void

For the winter entombed you
Trapped beneath the surface
Dead yet eternally young
You brought the dreams to life

I'm slipping away
Falling beneath the sky
Within the light of day
yet you remain so still
All this time has passed
Yet your hands still clench in fists

Within your eyes
My dream remains
Pure as the frost
That pulled you down

The sun hides
beneath the surface

My reflection fades
Within the iris void
