about

Orion's debut release 'On the Banks of Rubicon' is a masterful album with pulsating energy, memorable riffing and catchy hooks masking the complexity of the music. The music has shades of melody counterbalanced by aggression and growls, a perfect balance for music that can only be justified with the tag of progressive death metal.

Current line-up -
Vigneshkumar Venkatraman - Guitars/Vocals
Ashwin Kulkarni - Guitars
Anshuman Bhattacharya - Bass/backing vocals
Pritesh Prabhune - Drums


Reviews -

"It will impress and thrill whilst maybe opening the gateway to an undiscovered world of invention driven metal in the band’s homeland. Be brave and go for it we say." - The Ringmaster Review (UK) 10/10

"On the Banks of Rubicon is an album of top quality progressive death metal that provides something new with each listen." - All About the Rock (UK) 8.5/10 (A.A.T.R. approved!)

"This is a solid slab of death metal and one that proves to be progressive, melodic and catchy."- Metal Gallows (India) 85%

"What Orion offer is a nice dose of death metal thuggery with a more thinking mans grace and flair and 'On the Banks of Rubicon' is the right amount of historical context, emotional candour and brutal musicianship. in short, the potential shown by this band is limitless!" - Destructive Music (UK) 8/10

"this EP proves that Orion are definitely one to keep an eye on." - Global Domination (Sweden)

"highly recommended!" - Behind the Veil webzine (US) 8/10
