Occult black metal band from Kolkata, India have announced their debut release via Transcending Obscurity Distribution. ‘Videha Mukti’ is highly awaited and comes with a special packaging with matt lamination and a massive 12-page booklet containing complete song lyrics as well as notes on goddess Kali and moksha. It’s very limited.
Transcending Obscurity owner Kunal Choksi states, “Transcending Obscurity Distribution is all about supporting the underground and Infernal Diatribe from Kolkata reek of that. Their brand of black metal is very deserving and the guys have been very patient with this. I can only hope they can get their due and conquer new territories with this deal. Their passion is fierce, their music is pure, and their determination is right up there.”
Infernal Diatribe comment, “We thank Transcending Obscurity Distribution wholeheartedly for giving us this opportunity. Our endeavours would not have come to fruition without the consistent support of Kunal Choksi – working with him has been a delightful experience.
‘Videha Mukti’, our four-tracked EP will transport you to a knowledge portal like no other – the flaming Aghori liberated, your throbbing soul will be consumed by a spiritual transcendence like never before. Beauty and horror will be unleashed in this ‘vale of soulmaking.’ Gyres will turn.”
Infernal Diatribe, hailing from Kolkata, India, have taken the torch from Heathen Beast in further propagating the sound of black metal from the country. Along with significant albums released by Toxoid and Diabolus Arcanium, they’re at the foremost where the black metal scene in India is currently poised. Playing vicious and ambitious occult black metal, this quintet is all set to unleash their underground assault on unsuspecting ears worldwide. The band have worked tremendously hard on making this debut, their dream, a reality and armed with a deal with Transcending Obscurity Distribution, one can expect the band moving out of their home base to play other cities, and hopefully, other countries as well. Nonetheless, there’s little to stop their blackened spiritual attack. Superbly composed songs with an underlying dark Indian theme forms the crux of the band’s music. The whole affair reeks of spiritual indulgences, the left hand path and its fatal implications this side of the world, as the band tells us about the aghori path of moksha aka spiritual enlightenment.
