Biography

A 3 piece Death/Doom band from Lahore, Pakistan.

Description
“I’m really impressed with the whole style of music they play and glad to see that Pakistan has produced some quality and not quantity bands. The band is already Professional in every manner and sound like Legends on record.” – Fraz Erebus (Erebus Doom zine)”Their album “A Hymn to the Dying” can be regarded as one of the finest release in the South Asian region in recent years. The album is a pure journey to the heart of darkness with intelligently shifting speed, inspiring compositions, clean acoustic approaches and a multi dimensional assault.” – Sandip Gurung (dontshutupnepal.com)”Thankfully, Dionysus has some lush tones that are fully capable of calling upon folk, black, and even the aforementioned death-doom genres that capture the simplicity of the merged styles, yet embellishes the point(s) nicely throughout.” – Chris Pratl (Metalpsalter.com)”A 5 song and 28 minute collection of hard hitting riffs that show what a truly talented band Dionysus actually are.” – Sludge lord”Creating a heavy sound with a soothing atmosphere is why Dionysus makes people fall in love with them. Cannot wait to get hold of their copy soon!” – Rupsa Das (Indianmusicrevolution.com)For our music and stuff.
