Burial Dust came to life in 2013. This ep is their debut and it's pretty much indistinguishable from the vintage blackened albums from the Scandinavian hordes back in the nineties. According to the biography, they add some Eastern elements to their music but to be honest, I don't really hear them. What I hear is fierce black metal, raging on with sheer ferocity. Opener 'Oshubho Ahobaan' is quite slow, which is not a bad thing, but from then on, the blackened gates are open.
Songs like 'Where Is Your Rahmaa' and 'A Call from Home' blast on like the ancient hordes did. I'm almost constantly being reminded of bands like Beherit, Mayhem and Impaled Nazarene. Musically, vocally, artwork and production quality, everything about this ep brings me back to those glorious days. Thrash metal infused black metal, with some awesome guitar solos too, what else could you possibly want?
'Sandshaded Mausoleum' brings more bleak, anti-religious and darkness fueled brutality, again on a murderous tempo. I guess this is my favorite track on this ep, although that's a hard choice to make. My advice is simple, check it out. There is something glooming in the underground of Bangladesh. If you miss the old days of black metal, perhaps those regions are the place to be.
