Axis Of Metal Exclusive Full Album Stream: “Nihaihayat” by Yayla

Yayla _ Nihaihayat (2013) Art by Emir Togrul

Need some black metal in your life? I’m sure you do! And fear not, because Yayla is here to fill that void. Yayla is a one man brigade of black metal excellence. After releasing a string of albums since 2011, Yayla is back with their 2013 effort, Nihaihayat.

Yayla is the brain of child of multi-instrumentalist, composer, and filmmaker Emir Togrul. Togrul is a cunning master of melancholic, spacey, ambient, sinister, heinous, and majestic black metal. Nihaihayat is a journey split up into five audile pilgrimages that will guide you through the bleak and chilling abyss of Togrul’s mind.

With all of that said, Axis Of Metal and Merdumgiriz Records have allied and setup an exclusive FULL album stream to give you a taste of the pedigree Emir Togrul has achieved with Nihaihayat. Nihaihayat can now be streamed track-by-track via the players below. Hit play and be prepared to enter Yayla’s bone chilling and sinister world!

1) Integumental Grasp

2) Through The Sigil Of Hate

3) Immortalizing The Nine

4) Disguises Of Evil

About the Author

I started this project back in September of 2011. It was born out of an obsession for all things riffy and heavy. I figured, I wanted my opinions heard, so why not create my own soapbox? Thus, Axis Of Metal was born.

My beginnings as a metalhead, sprouted from a love of classic rock, and punk. Well, being 11 years old, Offspring and Blink-182 were as hardcore as they came, right? Anyway, after enjoying stuff like Zeppelin, Rush, Cream and pop-punk, I was introduced to grunge music, and that really paved the way for my insatiable taste for music. From there, I became totally obsessed with music. My love of punk evolved into bands like Black Flag, The Casualties (early), and eventually becoming enamored with discharge. As my need for speed and ugliness intensified, I was introduced to Slayer in high-school, and thus ... the metalhead was born.

Cool story, eh? I thought so too. Anyway, Axis Of Metal is created for you, yea you. Without all the support we've received over the past few years this zine would be nothing. So, enjoy, and stick around, will ya?
