Albatross – Horror metal from India

with one comment

Albatross is “a band which combines bone chilling stories with bone crushing metal“.  The band started out as the solo project of bassist Riju Dasgupta aka Dr. Hex and slowly added more members due to the response online to the first single “Gigi”.

The current line up is :-

Biprorshee Das – Vocals

The Scarecrow- Guitars

Vignesh- Guitars

Jay Thacker – Drums

Dr. Hex- Fretless Bass

They released their EP “Dinner is You”, a concept EP about cannibalism and the Kuru disease. It was mastered by Grammy nominated Swedish producer Andy LaRocque (King Diamond). The release was promoted with a 2 city tour their label mates Devoid and also Dubai death/thrash band Nervcell. I caught them at a gig last month and they put on a kickass set. The set included a couple of new tracks which sounded good.

The band will commence recording for a new EP in the coming week, stay tuned for more details on that. Join their facebook page for updates on the recording and the EP.
