Nilaihah Records is an American independent record label based in Columbus, Ohio. It was founded in 1999 by Kristy Venrick of The Azoic, after Oneiroid Psychosis asked her to release their next album. Though she did not have a record label at the time, Oneiroid Psychosis was impressed by Kristy's success at promoting her own band. After considering the proposal, a year later, Kristy agreed and decided to begin Nilaihah Records.

Since then, the label has grown considerably, signing other notable acts spanning a variety of electronic music styles, such as Unheilig, The Azoic, and Frozen Plasma. The label formed a partnership with the German label Infacted, serving as the North American outlet for European bands like Ad Inferna, XP8, NamNamBulu, Conetik, Endanger, and Liquid Divine, signing them to distribution deals. The label had a successful joint venture with Infacted on Muscle and Hate, a tribute to Nitzer Ebb featuring members of XP8 and Icon of Coil. Nilaihah Records has also released several other notable bands.

The label maintains an extensive mailorder catalog of its own releases and the recordings of others. It provides its music in legal digital download sites.


Nilaihah (pronounced "nil-EYE-ah") is an old English word meaning "poetics of the fallen", and is named after the opening track of The Azoic's 1998 album Where Broken Angels Lie.
