Indian metal has always been a mixed bag for me, but Godless piqued my interest due to it being a “supergroup” of sorts, comprising members of Skrypt, Shock Therapy, and Eccentric Pendulum. While these aren’t huge bands, experienced musicians should produce a better-than-average album, right? Let’s see how the four-song debut EP Centuries of Decadence fares.
As the year is winding down, holiday celebrations get underway, my second half of 2015 best-of list is being prepared, and I’m finding myself woefully behind on reviews, so here are several short ones to tide everyone over until life settles down.
The promoter that sent me this album called Albatross “arguably India’s most well-known heavy metal band”. Apparently I’ve had little to no exposure to Indian metal, because this was the first time I’d ever heard of them. With visions of Bollywood and curry in my mind, I began listening to Fear From The Skies not knowing what to expect.
