leave a comment »

New week and a new episode of Horns Up.

On this episode, Animesh and I speak to Kathir from The Wandering Ascetic & Rudra. He shares the creative process behind The Wandering Ascetic‘s debut album, Crimson and takes us back to his roots, including the journey of Rudra.

This episode is special to me as I discovered Rudra when I was just getting into extreme metal. The first album I heard by the band was their 3rd album, Kurukshetra and I remember buying the cd from Alex of Bloodbucket Productions.

Crimson is out via Transcending Obscurity next month. Listen to a couple tracks below

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.
