Dying Out Flame are a band from Nepal that plays a very brutal and vedic form of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Shiva Rudrastakam" which was released by Xtreem Music.
A very dark and ethnic folk music sound starts off the album along with some exotic sounding musical instruments and a few seconds later female and male hindu vocals are added into the music and after the intro tribal beats found their way onto the recording before going into a fast and brutal death metal direction.
Growls and blast beats are used on a regular basis throughout the recording along with a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording and the lead guitars are very melodic and bring in some exotic sounding musical scales.
The Ethnic folk music elements of the intro are also mixed in with the bands brutal death metal sound and the guitar riffing also utilizes a great amount of melody at times and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with some ritualistic spoken word parts and high pitched being added into the music at times.
Dying Out Flame creates a very original sound combining Hindi music with brutal death metal and there is nothing I have heard that sounds like this and I can see this start up a new genre of death metal in the next few years, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the worship of Lord Shiva, Vedic Literature and Hindu Mythology.
In my opinion Dying Out Flame are a very great sounding mixture of brutal death metal and hindi music and if you are looking for something very original sounding, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Eternal Mother Of Great Time" and "Trinetra Dhari (Three Eyed One)". 8/5 out of 10.
