What is Nimheil?
Nimheil is the sonic project of Pàdraig MacIain. A visceral exploration of soundscapes and textures, that can be seen as industrialized dark-ambient littered with fragments of noise. Night-mare realms and visions of chthonic places are given an audible form.
As a point of interest the word Nimheil is a Gàidhlig (Scottish Gaelic) word, and it is pronounced NEEV-ayl with the emphasis on the first syllable.
