Bhayanak Maut – Metastasis
I got an email from the recently de-bearded Vinay, one of BM‘s vocalists, letting me know that they appreciated my review of their album and that they had a new 3 track EP available for free download, Metastasis!
The metal scene in India is thriving, Vinay tells me. Bands are popping up all over the country, from Bombay (Bhayanak Maut, Scribe, Demonic Resurrection) to New Delhi (Undying, Inc.) to Bangalore (Myndsnare). And from what I’ve heard, the vast majority of them are bringing new levels of skull shattering metal to the world.
This EP is certainly evidence of that! Check it out: go download it, put it in a playlist, and crank that fucker up to 11. These tunes are brutal enough that I bet more than one person will break their steering wheel trying to drive and drum at the same time. The riffs are so awesome, so powerful, they’ll dig new furrows in your brain. Just like with their album, these guys never let up on the speed or the aggression or the attitude. This is metalcore with just enough flash to make it seem like fireworks keep going off in your cerebellum, forcing whiplash-inducing involuntary motor responses like headbanging and moshing.
I know that Bhayanak Maut are playing a bunch of gigs for the Great Indian Rock Festival (along with bands like Enslaved and Meshuggah), and this EP should certainly whet people’s appetite for their aural assault. I bet that mosh pit is gonna be insane! I just gotta figure out how to get there from Las Vegas…..
LATE ADDITIONS: For those of you too timid to download, or for Mac users who have a hard time unzipping the file, here’s some of what yer missing: Confucious and & Dear [Name]. Quickie picvids I made and posted on my youtube. Now, crank those fuckers up to 11 and commence with the headbangin’!
