Casey Hurd - Guitar/Vocals
Erik Shtaygrud - Guitar

Constantly playing live and opening for great acts such as Carach Angren, Wolfheart, Mors Principium Est and many more, together with a successful debut album that quickly spread through the scene like fire, the band is now getting ready to take over the world.
Black Lion will be reissuing their debut album “Order Divine” (CD/Digital and other secret formats) in 2018 and 2019 , the band is currently working on a new EP expected to see the light sometime in next year. More exciting new shows and a first European festival already on the way, ready to be announced shortly.
Black Lion comments:
“We are beyond excited to be able to work together with Hinayana! Upon discovering the band in early 2018, we were blown away by the massive sound and the professionalism that the band presented, both visually and sonically.
“We are proud to announce partnership with Black Lion Records of Sweden! We are very proud to be a part of the Black Lion family and to be working so closely with people who believe in us. We’d like to thank Oliver Dahlback for giving us this opportunity, we look forward to the many amazing things that will inevitably follow from this partnership!”
After getting to know the band and having the opportunity to talk things through over the summer, we are pleased to finally be able to announce the collaboration between Hinayana and Black Lion.

Focusing on being dynamic and including the audience, they are eager to bring their spiritual approach to life, depicted through melancholic and atmospheric music to new fans around the world.

“We want to only make concept albums so that the listener can immerse themselves into a journey, embraced by the atmosphere of the music, but still able to make her/his own experience, bringing with them the unique meaning she/he will find in our music. With our future albums, we're also planning to expand this experience with visual art, some movies, and for the third album, we hope there will be a book too, to expand on our visions.”

Active since 2015, Sacremento, California-based progressive melodic death metal outfit The Odious Construct are a young band relatively speaking. Yet in their brief existence, they've moved at blinding speeds to continually refine their craft live and in the studio in order to reach the next level. After hashing out two single song demos in 2015, the band quickly released their well-received self-titled EP in July of 2016. 2016's "The Odious Construct" was additionally praised by outlets such as Dead Rhetoric who called it "Straight-forward death metal with enough technical zest and melodic underpinnings to keep it interesting."
Now in 2018, The Odious Construct have evolved as musicians and songwriters and are primed to release their strongest music to date on Shrine of the Obscene. Recently signed to The Artisan Era, Shrine of the Obscene will be The Odious Construct's first effort on the label and is set for release on Friday, October 12th through The Artisan Era.
Throughout the five swift and deadly songs on Shrine of the Obscene, The Odious Construct carves out a path beyond the typical "complex for complexities sake" approach with a focus built upon catchy guitar melodies, straightforward brutality, and enhanced by orchestral flair to ensure the songs remain stuck in your head. The Odious Construct - Shrine of the Obscene will strongly appeal to fans of groups such as Alterbeast, The Black Dahlia Murder, Irreversible Mechanism, Virvum, and The Faceless.
*You can listen to an extended early teaser video for Shrine of the Obscene HERE
The Odious Construct had the following to say about the upcoming release of Shrine of the Obscene
"This upcoming EP is a progression from the previous self-titled EP. While still melodic, there is more speed and technicality involved, and there is more experimentation with orchestra instruments. Thematically, the writing is still dark. The lyrics revolve around psychological disorders, horror, suicide, etc. The goal of this EP was to include more dynamics musically and more diverse instrumentation. We are still a melodic death metal band but we are incorporating more modern elements to the music stylistically."
The Odious Construct is:
Casey Ryle - vocals
Wesley Yee - guitar
Ben Jackson - guitar
Sam Datu - bass
KC Brand - drums (The Ritual Aura)
