TheBulletBelts takes a look at 5 most important and highly influential metal albums from Malaysia. Here is number 2. 
   

SIL KHANNAZ - Gerbang Kayangan
They started as a violently heavy straight to your face death metal band back in the early demo and first abum days but this album departed altogether from their previous genre and head towards a new realm of progressive heavy metal with growling vocals. What made this album stood out was the fact that it was their first album with malay lyrics in the full. The lyrics themselves, mainly revolved around the history of Merong Mahawangsa, the history of Kedah (a northern state of Malaysia, rich with history) and a bit on the epic tales from Mahabharata, were creative inclusion of ancient malay royal language of Sanskrit and modern malay. This album introduced Sil Khannaz to a new and younger audience and at the same time upsetting their original fans which were left dazed for not being able to make out the reason behind the controversial departure of their favorite death metal band. But everybody eventually accepted this album as a classic Eastern Metal album nonetheless.
