Here's a brilliant Death/Doom Metal outfit from our neighborland, Lahore, Pakistan. Dionysus, who recently came out with a blasting EP, "A Hymn To The Dying", released by the Salute Records, Sweden. Before the release they've released their songs online, through download, by mediafire. A twenty eight minute EP, with five songs in it, has surely left many people spell-bound, all across the world. When I first heard this band, I was blown away by their clean production, beautiful guitar riffs, soothing tunes and monstrous vocals and drums.
The EP starts off with a beautiful piece of instrumental, with such an amazing folk element in it. I hear this 2 and a half minute instrumental for ten times a day. With such soothing riffs and changing tones of guitar coupled with an ambiance to hallucinate, this song certainly gives the listener heaps of expectations, which surely have been fulfilled later in the album as well. The second track and my favorite track from the album is The Valor of the phoenix. The soul-ripping scream in the beginning , proceeding with some intense riffs certainly takes this song to a different level. The variations in this nine minute song is massive. The listener would never get bored of this long doom song, rather at the end of the song, they would be craving for more. Burial ground, the next song, is a song with the perfect doom elements, and also my second favorite song from the album. It creates a very heavy atmosphere all around, with the actual essence of death and doom mixed with some killer riffs, beats and vocals going along. Bathing in Unholy blood, the most loved song perceived by the listeners is the fourth song of the album. Yet another song, with variations and perfect mix of melody , which Dionysus does best. After 1:46, the song becomes aptly Death Metal, with solos going at the back. Aptly received as the most loved song by all the people around. The last song, that marks off the end of the album is yet another blissful track with hissing vocals in the beginning. The perfect ending track of an album. This song has huge amount of Post Rock element punched in with some Ambient black Metal as well. The ending track surely leaves the listeners craving for more.
Dionysus has done a great job with their EP, and has come up to be a promising act from Pakistan. It's surely a band to look forward to. Creating a sound more unknown to most of the people, these boys are surely on the right track. I am much elated by this release and waiting for more and a never-ending journey and consistent in the future. Grab your copies soon! A limited 100 copies are to be over soon, with people buying like a whirlwind from obscure town to famous cities!
Creating a heavy sound with a soothing atmosphere is why Dionysus makes people fall in love with them. Cannot wait to get hold of their copy soon!
