After working with the likes of Multinational Corporations and Dionysus from Pakistan, proving beyond doubt that metal transcends boundaries, we are happy to work with Blackhour, Pakistan’s premiere heavy metal band, to release the band’s sophomore full length release. The international release date for the album is January 5th, 2016, although within Pakistan and India, due to an album launch show, ‘Sins Remain’ CDs will be made available sooner.
From Pakistan, the unlikeliest of places, we see a heavy metal band that’s creating quite a stir in the region. Blackhour are all set to release their sophomore debut album via Transcending Obscurity Distribution, presenting five epic songs with immense soul and sublime musicianship. Musically comparable to the classic traits of Iron Maiden as well as the modern soft improvisations of a band like Sentenced, the band forges a sound that is bound to hold appeal to any metal fan, old or new. Long, flowing compositions are spiced up with gritty vocals and punctuated by widely lauded harmonized dual solos which make the songs difficult to forget in any case. Impeccably produced and presented in a standard-setting quality, here’s heavy metal music that will give you goosebumps all over. The time has come. Blackhour strikes.

Gaijin, from Mumbai, India happen to be THE band to take death metal ahead in the country. Working behind the scenes for over five years, the band has finally come up with a potent EP that will change the perception of metal music emanating from these parts. Playing intricate, catchy and dizzying tunes, these guys are whipping out a form of death metal that’s far from conventional. Forging a path of its own, Gaijin’s expression is boosted by the production job done by the legend Pierre Remillard from Canada, who has previously worked with bands like Cryptopsy, Gorguts, Martyr among countless others. The flair is distinct, the intent ambitious and this could very well be the next big thing. The focus remains on sublime musicianship and structural richness, over humdrum brutality or incessant breakdowns, for a change.
The line up consists of – Malcolm Soans – Vocals Vinit Jani – Guitar Jay Pardhy – Guitar Karan Oberoi – Bass Ajit Singh – Drums
Long-running band from Aizwal, India is on the verge of releasing its sophomore album after a gap of almost eight years. A lot has changed since then but not the band’s passion and dedication towards the genre of death metal.

The new record took a long time but that’s how it works for us I guess. Until’ Mortality…. “
