Dann 'the djentle giant' The way Kartikeya combines hindouist concepts and mantras with loud and heavy riffs (with low-tuned bass and uninterrupted double bass drum blasts) hasn't an equivalent in metal. The production of this album is impeccable and without reproach. Just perfect. Just delightful. And it's cleverly composed with bits of indian instrumentations and mantras that are included in harmony with all the brutalness of the overall songs. Amazing! Favorite track: Sarva Mangalam.

Kadin Wisniewski Mahayuga is one of the best melodic death metal-ish albums I've heard in a really, really long time. This has killer riffs, great production, interesting use of ethnic instruments, and truly impressive songwriting. Absolutely worth buying.

Nicolas RESSOT Une sacrée découverte ! j'ai l'impression d'être un explorateur qui vient de découvrir une contrée exotique, avec ses autochtones férocement étranges qui se livrent à toutes sortes de rituels sanglants... je devrais fuir à toutes jambes, mais je reste planté comme un con, à observer avec un intérêt anthropologique... Fascinant ! Favorite track: Utpavana.

Nityasundara
Beloved of the evershining star
Sarvatapana
Divine destroyer of filth and blight
Kailashnath
Dweller of the sacred mount
Mahadeva
I bow before thy grace

Om Namah Shivaya
I pray 'til the end of days in solitude
I perform my tapasya for you

Raise thy hand upon my faith
I devote myself to thee

Bhairav
The darkness that enlights the blinded night
Kamalakshana
The eye that cleansed the world of false beliefs
Chandrapal
The moon crowns thy head
Bhooteshwara
Ashes of the fallen ones shall be thy bed

Lay thy hand upon my soul
He who carries the head of Brahma,
Speak thy word

Lingadhyakshasa
Thy lingam, worshipped by a million souls
Nataraja
The cosmic dance that crushes countless worlds

By your command I sacrifice myself

Thy feet I lay upon my head

Om Namah Shivaya
I pray 'til the end of days in solitude
I perform my tapasya for you

Om Namah Shivaya
Track Name: The Path
Parting with the ways of forgotten tribes
And becoming a grain of sand
In the desert of hypocrisy, filth and lies
Lost is the grip of divinity's hand
Parting with the ways of the fallen ones
Drowning in the waters of sin
Dweller of the worlds of shadows and grief,
May thy path begin!

Open your eyes and let them be
A guide through the mist of hate
Make your demons finally see
A fortified wall with a locked up gate
Find yourself in this burning pit
Of damned forsaken souls
Free yourself and show your wings
To the beings left below

Open every door
That stands between you and the light
Breaking through the core
Of hatred left inside your mind

Learning from the lands of the universe
Speaking the words of bliss
Gaining wisdom from the past
Crushing the blight with divinity's fist
Following the ways of the fallen ones
Floating in the waters of grace
Sculptor of the stone of infinity
Thy path has just begun!

Open every door
That stands between you and the light
Breaking through the core
Of hatred left inside your mind

Breaking every wall surrounding
Keys to domes of sanctity,
Spread your wings and fly forever
Cleanse your mind and set it free
Track Name: Fields Of Kurukshetra
Bow thy head
Before the golden throne
Before the chariots
Before the divine might
As armies grow, countless people rise
Legions of the holy war machine prepare to fight

Lay thy hand
On the sacred blade of truth
That splits an evil heart
And spills the blood of the impure
As banners rise above the heads of men
That shall stand for their lords
And battle to the end

All heads are turned towards the west
All torches burn as souls unite
They lay their hands upon their chests
A million eyes, they shine so bright

Panchajanyam Hrishikesho
Devadattam Dhananjayah
Paundram dadhmau maha-sankham
Bhima karma vrkodara
Sa ghosho dhartarashtranam
Hridayani vyadarayat
Nabha cha prthivim caiva
Tumulo bhyanunadayan

All heads are turned towards the west
All torches burn as souls unite
They lay their hands upon their chests
A million eyes, they shine so bright

Bow thy head
Before the void
Of countless deaths
And broken lives
Track Name: Neverborn
I am a symbol of a golden age
Where pain is blind and pleasure reigns
I am the master of tranquil waters
Which bear the essence of peace and grace
I am the serpent who lies upon
The golden statue with wings of stone
I am the eyes of a fallen god
Who once could see the truth
That remained unknown

I am the keeper of faith
I am the sun that fades away
I am the one whose life is torn
I am the child that was never born

The voices of million souls
Collide with the light
The tears of a million eyes
Forever denied

I shall be the never born
One whose life is a lie
I shall sleep on a bed of thorns
I shall be crucified

I am a sage with a broken soul
A sacred lake that has no shores
I am a seed that never grows
A ruined home with countless doors

I am the keeper of faith
I am the sun that fades away
I am the one whose life is torn
I am the child that was never born

The voices of million souls
Collide with the light
The tears of a million eyes
Forever denied

I shall be the never born
One whose life is a lie
I shall sleep on a bed of thorns
I shall be crucified
Track Name: Surya Jayanti
Rays pierce the clouds
In transcendental rapture
Waking all those
Who have fallen asleep
All crooked thoughts
And raging disasters
Vanish in the ocean
Of prayers and joy!

Om Suraya Namaha
Om Suraya Namaha
Om Suraya Namaha
Om Suraya Namaha

Becoming one with the divine grace
I raise my hands in order to reach the skies
Om Suraya Namaha, leave thy trace
In countless human lives

Open your eyes, open your heart
Let the sun dry every tear
Open your mind, open your soul
Embrace the light of the burning sphere

We celebrate the birth
Of the bringer of light
And drown in the essence
Of the newborn sun
Fear not, those captured
By the night
Chant the name of the
Burning one!

Om Suraya Namaha
Om Suraya Namaha
Om Suraya Namaha
Om Suraya Namaha

Becoming one with the divine grace
I raise my hands in order to reach the skies
Om Suraya Namaha, leave thy trace
In countless human lives

Open your eyes, open your heart
Let the sun dry every tear
Open your mind, open your soul
Float in the rays of the burning sphere
Track Name: Choirs Of Oblivion
We seek illuminance!
Cried the blinded mass
For being cast down
To the depths of depths they are
A million prayers
Vanished in the void
Another voiceless soul
Is banished from the universe

I see the absolute darkness
I scream in a moment of silence
I feed the mouthless ones
I lead the choirs of oblivion

Forsaken is the beast within
Destructed is the will to live
Aborted is the only child
Chosen by fate
As the savior of light

As I seek someone below
My own consciousness
As I seek someone below
The smouldering pit of ancient demons

The banished servants feasting on the dead
Are waken only to fall asleep again
I summon thee, o fallen king of blasted world
For here thy will is the will of all!

As I seek someone below
The flame that burns my feet
As I seek someone below
My own self, which is one with eternity

I see the absolute darkness
I scream in a moment of silence
I feed the mouthless ones
I lead the choirs of oblivion
Track Name: Utpavana
A last glance bursts into scarlet flames
A void of ash is all we possess
Time has come to pay for your sins
Bury hope, may Utpavana begin

As skies turn black and eyes turn white
Thousands scars on our faces crack wide open
Innocent children - vices of the earth
Seeds of enlightenment fall to grow

Under the eyes of lying bastards
We laughed at life, yet saw many dreams
Of war and pain, of hunger and slaughter
We dug our graves and now will rest in peace

Born again, blinded by pain,
Jackals run to the light over heads of their kin
Meaningless rapture in a moment of agony
Let the circle spin, may Utpavana begin!

You are the plague
You are salvation
You are the venom
You shall be no more!

As a child you raise your hands
To the everlasting sky
To the heavens, which once were penetrated
In order to feed your desires

Hark!
Thou shall be erased,
For the great Utpavana has begun!
Track Name: Mahayuga pt. 3: Dvapara Yuga
Kingdoms merge in the quest for might
Lords seek pleasure to feed their desires
Reigning in gold yet losing the truth
Meaningless yagya pouring oil into fires

Vedas divide as does a Brahmin's mind
Souls separate from the cosmic essence
Sri bhagavan, will they keep what they find
Leaving their faiths with no defence?

One obtains false desires
The other falls from grace
Brothers stand on the opposite sides
He who plays with the fire
Gets intensely burnt
When he steps on the path of a liar

Behold the rising wall
Dividing the sacred realms
And the worlds of man

Behold the waking faces of dawn
As the supreme lord returns to his above

One obtains false desires
The other falls from grace
Brothers stand on the opposite sides
He who plays with the fire
Gets intensely burnt
When he steps on the path of a liar
Track Name: Mahayuga pt. 4: Kali Yuga
Thou shall be denied, o holy one
By ignorant fools who plague the dying world
I hear the winds blowing over ashes and ruins
Of all that was sacred for every soul
May the end begin for it was told
That the cycle shall end to be born once more
I stand in the dust of once sacral soul
Humbly chanting thy name

See the father cry as the mother eats her child
Awaking an orgy of sacrilege and blight
See the genocide and bloodshed, raging armies rise
In the desecrated fortress of hatred and lies
Hear the harlot's scream, see the drunken smile
Sodomic rapture, cauldrons of bile
Innocence is raped by godless desires
Leaving the whole world vile

Sanctity in life, purity in mind
Sacrificed on the altar of blight
Suicide and lies, ignorance inside
What is pure is left to die

All ears are closed
And eyes are turned away
As children cry

So many years of carving faith
Put to an end by peoples hate
We are slaves
We are the end
Blasphemers reign in gold, as the holy drown in filth
All hope is lost as the sinners rule the earth

Sanctity in life, purity in mind
Sacrificed on the altar of blight
Suicide and lies, ignorance inside
What is pure is left to die

Those who seek salvation in this dying world
Shall find eternal peace by chanting the name of the lord
