Wow! We were sent a link to this insanely talented and creative Nepalese death metal act called Dying Out Flame who infuse Vedic, Hindu philosophy, South Asian instrumentation, Sanskrit chants with blast beats, heavy machine gun riffage, growling, all melded expertinly into their art. The band released their debut album a few years ago and its streaming below. We don’t have any other updates on the band but you have to just hit play and let the music take over.
Noisey had this to say about the band:
“Perhaps the most prominent Nepalese extreme band on the world stage, thanks to a deal with Spain’s Xtreem Music, and due to the band taking home the 2014 award for Best Asian Metal Album from the U.K.’s Global Metal Apocalypse, Kathmandu’s Dying Out Flame have had a chance to introduce their brand of death metal, inspired in part by Vedic rituals, Hindu philosophy, and Sanskrit chants, to a larger portion of the international community than most of their local counterparts. Formed in 2011, the band takes a somewhat mystical, spiritual approach to modern technical death metal, using the guitar to simulate the sounds of the sitar, and introducing eastern classical rhythms to the genre’s usual blast beats and alternate picking chug.”
