HINAYANA Interview: Poetry in Metal


The first time I heard Hinayana, it was love at first listen. It didn’t take many listens or warming up to, I knew it was special. When I heard about the announcement of the new album, Shatter and Fall, out November 11th, 2023 through Napalm Records, I had to chat with Casey Hurd again to discuss it. Thankfully, he was up for it.

Hinayana is a melodic death metal band from Texas. Members: Casey Hurd (vocals, guitar), Erik Shtaygrud (guitar), Daniel Vieria (drums), Michael Anstice (keyboards), and Matt Bius (bass), are sweeping the nations with new music and live performances, teaming up with Wolfheart for the second time. In Shatter and Fall, they have even brought on guest Wolfheart vocalist, Tuomas Saukkonen as well as Aether Realm‘s vocalist, Vincent Jackson Jones.

The album is full of intense vocals, catchy riffs, beautiful melodies, insane guitar solos, and incredible musicianship all around with aggressive drums and great bass work. They somehow continue to get better and better even though they started out so strong.

Hurd sat back down with Metal Nation to talk about the new album and other topics. (If you are viewing from your phone, scroll to the bottom of the page and click “View Desktop Version” for video access).
