For the first time ever, we’re introducing coffee mugs and it so happens that the timing coincided with the release of this sampler, so why not? This one has a 8″ long all over print stretching from side to side, printed on white mugs. It’s not the worst thing to look at every morning.

We’ve been doing this for a few years now and it seems finally our label is developing an identity. Several of the known label bands have returned to contribute brand new songs from their upcoming releases while new signings have been minimal. It seems that’s the way to go but we’re incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved so far and to have amassed an interesting roster of bands from all the styles as always. Like last time, we’ve segregated the songs genre-wise as you can see below –
Tracks 1-22 – death metal/grind/crust
Tracks 23-26 – technical/brutal death metal
Tracks 27-33 – black metal
Tracks 34-38 – doom/sludge metal
We’ve enlisted the services of none other than Mark Riddick for the label sampler artwork and he’s done a stellar job with it, as always, keeping some of the Indian elements in mind because no matter who we work with, we’re aware of our roots. He has also designed our label logo the same way, in line with our local language and script.
For the first time where our label samplers go, we’re making coloured merch of not one but two prints, which will perhaps set the tone for the kind of merch we’ll end up making this year for the rest of the releases in some way.
We can’t thank you all enough for your support over the years and allowing us to reach where we are presently, and of course to the bands that have entrusted us with their music.
