Staff review by
I've been awaiting this record for a while now, I was eager to hear the evolution of one of the most underrated bands of the worldwide Metal scene. In case you don't know the band in question, let me introduce you to the first and only Vedic Metal band of the globe, Rudra.

Hailing from Singapore, the band exceptionally mixes a raw mix of Black and Thrash Metal with Folk influences from their motherland. I remember hearing (and reviewing) their previous album "Kurukshetra" while the album was top notch musically and lyrically, the music lacked the folk element in order to capture the listener into their vibe. Well, this time they really did it; they managed to entwine the aggression of their music with beautiful passages such as chants and tribal percussion, the result? An exceptional well crafted album that definitively deserves attention.
