HINAYANA - Announces Release Of The New EP, New Video Released

Texas (USA) based melodic death/doom upstarts Hinayana have announced that their new EP, Death Of The Cosmic, will be released on 28th of August via their new home Napalm Records. Together with the announcement also a new video for a new track "Cold Conception", featuring late Tengger Cavalry frontman Nature Ganganbaigal.

Today, Hinayana are introducing their new and improved sound to the world via the charging, melancholy crusher "Cold Conception", featuring trailblazing late Tengger Cavalry frontman and multi-instrumentalist Nature Ganganbaigal on Morin Khuur (horsehead fiddle). These expansive contributions melded with earth-shattering vocals, unrelenting mix-paced drums and searing guitar leads make "Cold Conception" and its grim, expansive official music video a must-listen/see.

Vocalist/guitarist Casey Hurd states about the track: "While writing "Cold Conception", I wanted to create something more energetic than the other tracks on the EP while keeping the mid-paced, brooding/rhythmic sound that I enjoy writing the most. The song is about the aimless, cold, modern world man has created and somehow wandered into at the same time, and the accelerating journey to reach a point of no return where many civilizations have collapsed in the past. I'm honored to have been able to work with Nature Ganganbaigal of Tengger Cavalry on this track before he passed away, he was excited and enthusiastic about the project. The track features his horsehead fiddle playing, creating some of the most sorrowful and bittersweet moments the band has ever produced on this track alone, so much so that we all got goosebumps listening to his parts in the studio during the mixing process."

Otherworldly and haunting while maintaining a crushing, colossal heaviness and peppered with undeniable groove, the Death Of The Cosmic EP emphasizes improved production and keen songwriting. Primarily self-produced by the band with mixing/drum recording from Kevin Butler and mastering by Swallow The Sun's Juho Raiha, fans will also notice the new EP's heightened concept in comparison to the band's previous releases.

Casey Hurd adds about the EP: "Death Of The Cosmic is based on the severed connection between ourselves and the cosmic, spiritual force in the universe and the loss of hope for the cold, modern world man has created in nature's place. Sonically, we wanted to make something that was beautiful but crushing at the same time, demonstrated in the title track of this EP, which in concept might be viewed as a microcosm of the whole EP itself. Something we tried to do was stray away from some of the more cliché elements of melodic death metal and instead focus on what is the very root/core of Hinayana and what gives the band its own sound."
