Austin, Texas based melodic death/doom metal outfit Hinayana share new music video for »Pitch Black Noise« from their latest EP, »Death Of The Cosmic«, out on August 28th, 2020 via Napalm Records.
Vocalist/guitarist Casey Hurd states about the track and video: “»Pitch Black Noise« is one of the first songs I ever wrote for Hinayana, but still holds so many of the key elements of the band’s sound even today. It has remained one of our favorites to play live over the years. Filmed in Leipzig, Germany by Tuomas Saukkonen of Wolfheart, we’re thrilled to give our 2020 EP one last hoorah with this new music video.”
Directed and produced by Winter Notes Productions/Tuomas Saukkonen.

Melodic death metal upstarts Hinayana bring the flaming Texas heat on their latest EP, »Death Of The Cosmic«. Following their 2018 debut full-length, »Order Divine«, the new EP is poised to showcase another facet of their death/doom symbiosis.
Each of the five tracks presents another shade of the band’s sophisticated arrangements: from doom-propelled cascades to rapid riffing and melodic guitar-lines, »Death Of The Cosmic« draws its listener into Hinayana’s sturdy strains of modern metal. The opening track, »Death Of The Cosmic«, kicks off with an ambient-feeling blending into Hinayana’s universe, led by Casey Hurd’s murmuring vocals, rising to the full extent of his deep, menacing growls.
»Cold Conception«, featuring late Tengger Cavalrys frontman Nature Ganganbaigal, convinces with harsh growls and reveals another aspect of Hinayana’s instrumental intensity. »In Sacred Delusion«, which features a guest appearance from Toni Toivonen (Hanging Garden from Finland), showcases a heightened force of musical refinement.
»Death Of The Cosmic« closes with the epilogue »Pitch Black Noise« and not only proves Hinayana’s identifiable auditory trademark of melding accumulating tranquility and thunderous intensity, but also underlines the existential depth of their lyrics.
