Staff review by
Eastern influences in rock-derived forms of music have come quite a long way since the days of George Harrison and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. With metal in its modern state, we definitely have plenty of bands that follow suit (Nile, Melechesh, and Rudra, to name a few). The problem I find with a lot of this Eastern-infused metal, however, is that the metal almost always seems to trump the Eastern elements, and being the Oriental f̶a̶n̶a̶t̶i̶c̶ ̶ nerd that I am, I find myself looking for bands that strike more of a 50/50 balance between the two. This year, I was lucky enough to get my wish, in the form of Cult Of Fire's sophomore release मृत्यु का तापसी (that's "Ascetic Meditation Of Death," for all you heathen bastards who have not yet mastered the holy Sanskrit).

I think everyone probably got swept up in the imagery and song names.

Yeah. Also, I think that the earlier moments of album had lasting effect on me.
Giving my ears a rest from music.

Yeah the opening and ending tracks are quite heavy on it so it probably stays in people's mind for that reason.

I'm here because I just noticed that I haven't commented on this album yet. Really good stuff, and I'm finding it hard to find bands with similar sound. About time CoF came out with a new full album. Surprise us please.
