Gadhimai is a sacrificial ceremony that takes place every 5 years in southern Nepal at the temple of Gadhimai.
Around 200000-300000 animals are slaughtered to worship the goddess while devotees seek peace, prosperity and wellbeing .
It is a complete blood bath, claimed to have been banned by various organizations, but still continued till 2015.
Underside strongly condemns killing or abuse of any kind or any manner in the name of "GOD”.
It is yet to be seen if the festival will take place again.
2019 is the year of Gadhimai.

Deconstruction of your soul ,Your god can’t save you all.
Remember, Sacrifice comes from within
You can’t rise above the lies, when u can’t tell hope from a sin
When it comes to saving yourselves, you always first always the first one in line
Into the hell
The hell of our making
Now that she dawns who is to blame your or me ?
Overrun by you desires, You started the fire that will burn us
Eyes sewed close, spoon fed a generation with your lies
Terminal bodies and hollow minds ,Too late now, should not have ignored the signs.
PUT flower on the blood in the name of your god- x2
Now she dawns - (Pre-Chorus )
Misery will spread like plague and then all hope dies
Ticking away, Downward Spiral into the endless pit we fall
Mystic callings but quite so absurd
Ignore the squeaking of another one in the mud
Put Flower on the blood
In the name of your god
Pray the unknown, follow the Divine
And then God will speak, “what yours is mine”
Bow down to your master
And look for you sin
Just to get here you have forgotten what you’ve been!
A BLIND WITH A CANDLE!!!
