EYE OF NIX was conceived in Autumn of 2012, the result of five veteran Seattle musicians from diverse backgrounds in underground metal, classical, harsh noise, psych and dark country coming together to create abrasive yet shape-shifting sounds. The following year Eye of Nix recorded and self-released a four-song cassette demo and toured the West Coast with noise veterans Blue Sabbath Black Cheer. Since their inception, EON has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with acts as notable as Jarboe, Helen Money, Sea of Bones, Lesbian, Worm Ouroboros, Eight Bells, and Sutekh Hexen.

Following the completion of their debut LP Moros, which was captured by the hands of engineer Brandon Fitzsimons (Bell Witch, Anhedonist, Haunted Horses), the band collaborated with filmmaker Michael Ray Sheets and butoh performer Vanessa Skantze to create a video for Elysium Elusive. The film premiered on Noisey in April of 2015, along with the release of Moros by Eugene, Oregon label Belief Mower (Muscle and Marrow, Hungers, Eagle Twin). EYE OF NIX toured the Western US states in the Spring of 2015.

EYE OF NIX is vocalist Joy Von Spain, drummer Justin Straw, guitarist Nicholas Martinez, bassist Gerald Hansen, and noise artist Masaaki Masao. Eye of Nix members also belong to avant-crust duo Same-Sex Dictator, Michael Ray & The Plastic Sheets, and doom metal/death industrial group Mongrel Gods.
