TERMINUS: extreme metal podcast

Terminus Interview - Harul Vinay

November 15, 2021

On Terminus we've spoken frequently in the abstract about folk music and its relation to extreme metal, both musically and conceptually. It's only now, though, that we get to peek behind the metaphorical curtain into the thoughts of an artist who explores the ties between those styles. On this interview, The Black Metal Guy speaks to the main mind behind Harul Vinay, whose debut record explores the delicate liminal spaces between folk and metal in all their forms. This wide spanning interview covers all sorts of topics, both musical and spiritual, but the centerpiece is an evocative description of the album's concept and narrative as it ties to the landscape of the project's Himalayan home.
