HINAYANA- EP „Death Of The Cosmic“ – english review
Atmospheric melodic death metal
HINAYANA from Texas released their last full-length album „Order Divine“ in 2018 and caused such a stir that they were signed to Napalm Records. Now they satisfy the hunger of their fans with the EP „Death Of The Cosmic“. The EP is spread over 5 tracks with a playing time of 23 minutes. You could already hear
the strengths of the band
on the last album „Order Divine“. They have a knack for good melodies and create in their songs a perceptible deep atmosphere into which you can let yourself fall. Massive riffs are enmeshed by filigree guitar chords and create an epic component like you know it from e.g. PARADISE LOST. Even top-class guitar solos you don’t have to do without. The single output „Cold Conception“ shows impressively what the men are capable of.
The singer Casey Hurd gives the songs a dark intensity. Essential for the musical concept are also these quiet melodic passages, which loosen up the very massive sound. „Yet Here I Wait Forever“ is by no means a superfluous instrumental track, but fits perfectly into the overall picture and complements the music in an excellent way. Atmospheric keyboard synths in combination with the light and artful acoustic guitar-play enchant the listener until he is surrounded by heavy riffs and intense growls on „The Sacred Delusion“ again.
the drums are also sounding, which I like very much throughout. Especially in the downtempo-song „In Sacred Delusion“ they appear vehemently. Unfortunately, the next song „Pitch Black Noise“ already marks the end of the EP. It will start off again violently dark. The song could already be heard on the first release „Endless“ in 2014. It was probably decided to record it again with new technical possibilities.
HINAYANA continue to build on their strengths and open up a dark death metal world with an impressive epic melodic component that does full justice to the appealing poetic lyrics. This majestic symbiosis of elements casts a spell over the listener. With this, HINAYANA skillfully and completely deservedly join the league of for example WOLFHEART or PARADISE LOST. On the negative side, the new output has a short playing time. We can only hope that the guys are already working on new material and maybe next year they will give us a complete album.
