Unexpected; there is no word better to describe progressive death metal and no word better to define Orion. This giant’s journey towards greatness has stretched across a span of four years. With rises, falls, conflicts, losses, redemption and other rock and roll documentary occurrences, Orion has forged itself to become the creature it is today. The sound that Orion is known for has always been a mystery to the band itself because every fan and enthusiast finds a new way to express what they hear. The one thing that remains constant is the element of surprise. Their music is a relentless mix of progression with jazz and death metal.

Over the period we’ve been operating, we’ve received countless number of promos from underground bands seeking recognition for their work and talent. Looking at some of these artists, it’s a saddening fact that they dont get the level of attention that their skills deserve. Our primary aim here, in Metal Gallows, is to put the spot light on such bands who’s music simply must be heard.
Death metal is a genre that lot of the promos we receive can be classified under. So for our first compilation, we’ve gathered 18 bands whose music truly phenomenal and must be heard by every fan of the genre. Now the bands here vary from traditional death metal to technical and progressive death metal, with everything in between. So without further ado, here’s Metal Gallows Death Metal Compilation Vol I: http://www9.zippyshare.com/v/91589731/file.html.
The one aspect that everyone universally expects from music is memorability. Be it any genre, the listeners always want to hear something that will stay with them for a while after they’ve listened to the album. When dealing with a genre like death metal, catchy song writing is a particularly hard feat to achieve. So death metal bands instead, focus on technicality and brutality as opposed to catchiness. So when I stumbled upon a death metal band that was both progressive and immensely memorable, it came as a surprise indeed.
