Dahong Palay – pertains to a breed of snake that is considered to be one of the most venomous in the planet.

Dahong Palay really marked its venom to their audience and listeners during those times. After a few gigs and tons of radio airplay, the group earned the title of The Philippines’ answer to Black Sabbath and was even later christened as “The Philippines’ Kings of Dark Metal.”. The rest as they all say is history.
The band has appeared in almost all of the compilation albums of Tone Def Label and in 1996, Dahong Palay released its debut album “Kapatiran ng Bakal at Apoy” under a major label – Ivory Records. The sales of the album went up to gold.
They also made a rendition of Florante’s “Pinay” and was included in Ivory Record’s Himig Album 1 and gained a lot of airplay in LA105.9 and even other stations as well.
