According to wiki, Nataraya (or Nataraja) is a depiction of Hindu god Shiva as the cosmic dancer who performs his divine dance to destroy a weary universe and make preparations for god Brahma to start the process of creation.
I doubt if the band Nataraya has anything to do with Bhagavad Gita, Krishna or Hinduism since they are undoubtedly against religion, but I can definitely claim that their music is as cathartic as Shiva's dance.
Destroy to create may be a nihilist approach for mankind's future, but it seems as realistic as hell nowadays that this world has reached its nadir.
Nataraya consists of 3 ex-members of the band March Into The Void and their demo (which was released a couple of weeks ago) includes 6 songs (40 minutes long) of instrumental landscapes.
Critics will call this 'post-metal' and will refer to Isis, Pelican and Fall Of Efrafa's epic parts.
Even though, Nataraya recorded these songs live in just one day, they managed to capture a great melancholic atmosphere that will engorge you with a feeling of being stoned (drugs are not obligatory, of course).
Nataraya is a totally DIY band and stands against any kind of authoritarianism, hierarchy and blind submission.
The demo is distributed by them, but you can also download by visiting the band's site.
Turn the lights off and listen to Nataraya.
