HINAYANA Joined by WOLFHEART Frontman Tuomas Saukkonen on New Track “A Tide Unturning”

Austin, Texas based melodic death metal band-to-watch HINAYANA will release their massive sophomore full-length album, Shatter And Fall, this Friday, November 10, 2023 via Napalm Records. 

Following their stunning recent singles Reverse The Code” and “Triptych Visions”HINAYANA have released their third new single,“A Tide Unturning”, featuring guest vocal contributions from Tuomas Saukkonen of WOLFHEART. The track shines as one of the most brutalizing yet pensive metal ballads of 2023, as flowing melodies and deep resonating guitars surround the crushing voices of Saukkonen and frontman Casey Hurd. 

In 2018, HINAYANA first ensnared the masses with their self-released debut, Order Divine, and later defied the pandemic with their subsequent 2020 release, the Death Of The Cosmic EP. Produced by frontman Casey Hurd and Kevin Butler with mastering by Dan Swanö at Unisound, upcoming Shatter And Fall serves as a darker, more solemn work in comparison to their previous releases, yet superior without question in songwriting, technicality and cohesiveness. Shatter And Fall also features guest contributions from melodic death metal purveyors and labelmates Tuomas Saukkonen of WOLFHEART and Vincent Jackson Jones of AETHER REALM

Setting them apart from contemporaries like InsomniumAmorphis and Swallow the SunShatter And Fall blends modern, accessible elements with equal parts melody and menace, emerging as a fresh entry in this year’s most head-turning metal offerings. 

Frontman Casey Hurd says about the album:
Shatter And Fall is about Karma, one’s own fate, consequences, grief about our own actions, depression, loss of faith, yin and yang, light and dark, and our own unchanging nature as humans. It’s darker, heavier, and more diverse than our previous releases. We’re evolving and expanding on our sound to include more catchy and anthemic elements in addition to the darker, heavier material. This new album is a significant milestone for HINAYANA.”
