VAJRA - The Mirror Single
This band from New York plays a mix of what they call Gypsy Metal, and also contains East Indian sounds, Hard Rock, Psychedelic, Metal, and Progressive all mixed together. They have just released a new single from their forthcoming CD, Irkalla (released Fall 2017) which is the first in a series of three EPs called the Trilogy Series.
The song has a few gentle parts that get harder and heavier, and then there are parts that are completely bombastic and just blow your hair back. The mix of the different music styles, including the East Indian sounds really work together to create a unique sound. The playing is exemplary, with a tight arrangement, great production, thick bass, driving drums, blistering guitar playing and such amazing vocals that I had to hit repeat a few times. The song is catchy, and very memorable, a very good sign for their upcoming EPs.
Take a look at their cool video for the song, then go and buy it and play the hell out of it. Get ready for something great from this band, they have the talent and with quality of this high standard, they are going to keep rising.
