AGAINST EVIL (India) - 'Fatal Assault' EP
Genre - Heavy Metal Release Date - Timeless
Making a debut from an unknown city for metal in India, Visakhapatnam, Against Evil has created shockwaves around the world. From being the fastest selling Indian release this year, to being critically acclaimed and loved by one and all, these guys are turning the heavy metal cliche into something enjoyable once again by incorporating subtle elements from current day genres. Every song portrays a different mood, with the vibe and inherent heavy metal essence remaining intact, as the boys passionately sing their hearts out and beat the shit out of their instruments. This is the new era of heavy metal, the veritable entry point for all metalheads, and it couldn't get better than this for a debut album, for a band from a far away city, of a far away country. Under the auspices of the internationally experienced Transcending Obscurity entity, the band has been able to reach out to lusting fans and even jaded critics from around the world, making a dent in their rigid perceptions of a genre that's all but written off in this nearly heartless 21st century.
