Metal band Orion's debut album "Angel of Dust"

Orion is a diverse metal band from Pakistan that is influenced by bands like Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Pantera, Exodus and Opeth among others. The band was formed in 2006 with the aim of making an album that was not only ground breaking in terms of the Pakistani music scene, but that could hold its own when compared to international releases as well. The album 'Angel Of Dust', consists of 10 extremely diverse songs that cover most sub genres of metal. Almost no song is in the exact same style as the other, making this a very refreshing listen from start to finish. From the thrash attack of the opener 'In The Mouth Of Madness', to the many twists and turns of the conceptual 10 minute epic 'The Final Sign', 'Angel Of Dust' will be a great listen for anyone who likes their music with aggression, dynamics and groove, infused with just the right amount of technicality and melody.
