This is the first EP from the band Nahaya. The band comes from San Antonio Texas. The band originally started in 2014 and the band has drawn great inspiration from Swedish melodic death metal bands for example In Flames, At The Gates, Soilwork and Amon Amarth. You can right away in the first song “Spark” hear this band like to go fast and all in, the song starts with a riff that goes all the way for me into the choir`s were they slow down and kick in the more headbanging heavy part, the song is a great way to start this EP.
I am not a huge fan of intro`s if it does not do something to get me to not fast forward in the songs. 3 out of 4 of these songs have intro`s and the song I really was hooked on right away on this EP was the main song “ Transcendence” because it starts of with a nice guitar melody and the second guitar comes in and chug a chord and then the song goes in full speed.
The band is at the moment in the American Wacken metal battle and competing at the second stage, they play a great mix of melodic death-metal and Thrash metal
All said and done a good first EP.
