Iraqi/Kurdistan metal band Cyaxares release full length.
“CYAXARES oriental death metal project created in Iraq in 2009 by Mir Shamal Hama-faraj. The debut album released cyaxaresprez 2014 and named “Whores of Babylon”, and now it is the turn of the second – “House of the Cosmic Waters”. All in CYARAXES in the spirit of ancient Mesopotamia – the fact that the project is named after the Median king Cyaxares to melodies that are heavily inspired by Eastern music and culture. For now, the issue is only digitally, but the group at this time is not bound by label.”
When the melodic vocals kick in just wait to be blown away…the band has managed to capture the sounds and scales of this region PERFECTLY.
