History

This jazzcore act existed between 1999 and 2008. Jaroslaw 'China' Labieniec, formerly of Vader, Szymon Czech and drummer Wojciech Szymanski launched the project. 2000 brought the masses Nospromo 2000. Candlelight picked up the band – amidst a slew of Poland-based band signings – and issued the debut. Singer Michał Pawluć had left. Jarosław briefly left in 2006, but soon returned. The Poland-based label Selfmadegod issued a split with Antigama in 2007.

Nyia is apparently an ancient Polish deity. Czech became a producer before dying in 2012.

Reviews

NYIA - HEAD HELD HIGH - CANDLELIGHT
What? Another Polish band on Candlelight? The label may have to change its name to Cjiandiligeliwtski. Nyia features China who used to guitar famously for Vader. The quintet is extreme, but very different from the originators of the Polish scene. Nyia - apparently an ancient Polish deity - is a technical metalcore band akin to music usually favoured by Lifeforce Records. The sound is sharp, the vocals are guttural and the drums all over the map. No solos though, don't wait around.
The CD lasts around 25-minutes, but the label considers it a full-length because the band has crammed 12 songs into the space. - Sheila Wes Det
