Comments

Thanks a lot for this I haven´t found any of their music apart from the two songs they did for metal hammer magazine.

I found their untitled album just by poking around. You can probably find it if you search hard enough. Metastasis was alright but their untitled album is just fantastic. (With a little djent elements thrown in) If I can find the download link I will definetly post it.

Edit: If you prefer to go the old-school way, you can find the untitled album on itunes.

How can I get hold of this band's music?

Edit: I found a free download link for their EP Metastasis here: http://nh7.in/indiecision/2010/10/20/bhayanak-maut-metastasis-ep/
