Rudra

leave a comment »

Veteran Singapore metal act Rudra are pioneers of Vedic Metal. I discovered the band when I was just getting into extreme metal. The first album I heard by Rudra was their 3rd album, Kurukshetra. The album has been described by the band as their “heaviest and most ruthless in both music and lyrical content”. Last month, Rudra released The Blackisle Sessions which features tracks from Kurukshetra.

Find out more about the Blackisle Sessions, Kurukshetra and also their upcoming releases in this interview with frontman Kathir.

Singapore grindcore trio Wormrot are back this year! Their debut album ‘Abuse’ sent ripples through the underground in 2009. The album reached the ears of Digby Pearson who signed them to his legendary label Earache records. The band released their third album ‘Voices’ yesterday, five years after their previous release ‘Dirge’. ‘Voice’ is 20 tracks of ball-crushing grindcore.
