Heavy Metal Therapy: Feeling that 2022 burnout? NIK NXK (Nik Nocturnal) has you covered

After releasing the smash singles “Isolation” and “INDUSTRY” earlier this year, NIK NXK (Nik Nocturnal‘s trap metal moniker) returns today with producer deadwait (Corpse‘s producer) to drop a new phonk/trap metal anthem: “BURNOUT”. NIK NXK comments: “‘BURNOUT’ is something I’ve experienced countless times in my life through trying to push myself creatively to new heights while completely neglecting my health & sanity. It’s something that can start with a simple pursuit of a passion, of love for the grind – but can easily turn into completely self-destructive behavior, ruining your life if it’s not held in check.”

“BURNOUT” is streaming now on Spotify; watch the video later today (September 9th) @ 8AM PST//11AM EST//5PM CET here: 

NIK NXK – “BURNOUT” lyrics

LIVING IN THE FAST LANE

GRINDING TIL I’M INSANE

PUT THE PEDAL TO THE METAL

I DON’T THINK I’M OK

HOOK IT UP TO MY VEINS

PUSHING THROUGH THE PAIN

GRINDING TIL I’M INSANE

NOTHING WILL REMAIN

TAKE A MOMENT TO REFLECT

ALL I’VE DONE TO DISCONNECT

SLOWLY CHAOS FINDS IT’S WAY

JUST LIKE MODDED GTA

CONSCIOUSLY MOVING BUT NOTHING IMPROVING

WATCHING MYSELF BUT MY MIND IS REMOVING

THE LAST BIT OF SANITY LOSING HUMANITY WELCOME CALAMITY

BURNING ME

ENDING ME

BURNING ME

SET ME FREE

LIVING IN THE FAST LANE

GRINDING TIL I’M INSANE

PUT THE PEDAL TO THE METAL

I DON’T THINK I’M OK

HOOK IT UP TO MY VEINS

PUSHING THROUGH THE PAIN

GRINDING TIL I’M INSANE

NOTHING WILL REMAIN

BLEGH

TAKE A MOMENT TO REFLECT

BURNING OUT NOTHING LEFT

EVERYTHING TURNS TO ASH

TAKE A MOMENT TO REFLECT

BURN ING OUT NOTHING LEFT

EVERYTHING TURNS TO ASH

LIVING IN THE FAST LANE

GRINDING TIL I’M INSANE

PUT THE PEDAL TO THE METAL

I DON’T THINK I’M

LIVING IN THE FAST LANE

GRINDING TIL I’M INSANE

PUT THE PEDAL TO THE METAL

I DON’T THINK I’M OK

HOOK IT UP TO MY VEINS

PUSHING THROUGH THE PAIN

GRINDING TIL I’M INSANE

NOTHING WILL REMAIN

BURNING ME

SET ME FREE

About Nik Nocturnal

Since launching his YouTube channel in 2014, Nik Nocturnal has worked tirelessly on content, bringing his idiosyncratic and passionate take on metal to everything that he does, making it clear that the music matters to him – and his irreverent sense of humor does not hurt. “It started out as a means of finding ways to share my music as a solo musician that accidentally made me fall in love with content creation and building a community,” he explains. “I’m basically providing unique perspectives/takes on the metal scene and music, while actually having a proper background in this music and the industry.”

Taking four or five years to build up a substantial following on YouTube (currently with over 600k subscribers!), he gained a favorable reputation amongst fans and artists alike – which led to creating a Twitch channel in 2020. This opened up a whole new avenue for interacting with the community, where Nocturnal could invite the bands that he was supporting to be involved with his content too. Amongst these, some of his personal highlights include Matt Tuck (Bullet For My Valentine), Nick Hipa (Mire, As I Lay Dying, Wovenwar), Howard Jones & Jared Dines (Sion, Killswitch Engage, Light The Torch), Phil Bozeman (Whitechapel), Matt Heafy (Trivium, Ibaraki) and Jacoby Shaddix (Papa Roach). “It’s an amazing feeling to get respect from people I looked up to when I was a kid, especially because I didn’t make it here through traditional band routes.”

Nocturnal is also consistently working on collaborations with artists, including a 2000’s-Metalcore-style release with Phil Labonte (All That Remains), a Trap Metal project with producer deadwait (Corpse‘s producer), and even covers of classic Deathcore songs with Will Ramos (Lorna Shore). At the same time, Nocturnal has his own band, Termina, in which he plays all the instruments and Andy Cizek (Monuments, Makari, WVNDER) provides the vocals.
