Some of their famous songs are: "Kapatiran ng bakal at apoy", "Talim",  "Manlalakbay", and my favorite "Imortal". For young Metalheads who are not familiar with this band,  here is a brief band profile for you to taste a small drop of their venom.

Band Profile. 

Dahong Palay has been in the Metal and Underground scene in the Philippines for almost 14 years now. The band released compilation albums under Tone Def and released a Debut Album "Kapatiran ng Bakal at Apoy" under Ivory records. The band name Dahong Palay pertains to a breed of snake called "Ricefield Snake" that is considered to be one of the most venomous in the planet. 

During Dahong Palay's early years, they gathered a lot of audience and listener's and was considered as The Philippines’ answer to Black Sabbath. Later they  were christened as “The Philippines’ Kings of Dark Metal.”. 

Band Members:

                     Eurd Dela Hostria - Bass / lead vocals. Disc jock of Hot Fm 106.3 Cagayan de Oro
                    Joji Crisologo - Lead guitars / Back-up vocals & scream
                    Rami - The new sessionist drummer of Dahong Palay (2008).

I was 10 years old when I first heard of this band and I was really moved by the way they sound. The sword sound effect on the intro of the song "Kapatiran ng Bakal at Apoy" was really struck me during that time.  

The sword sound effect is like two sword scraping against each other and as a kid that was something new and very cool. When I listen to their songs, I feel like they bring me to a different dimension. A world where great warriors and noble men exist. Fighting for the truth, love, justice, and freedom Good vs evil, metal against metal. .

Dahong Palay played as a big influenced as I grew up as a metalhead and I will continue to support this band for I know that they deserved it and they are much better on some famous Filipino bands today.

See yah all at the concert and lets raise our fists to this great band.
