Indian death metal band Violent Upheaval have released a new politically charged single. According to the band this track “mocks the Modi government and the right-wing fringe movements that have received impetus under his regime.”
The band has also provided a background which you can read below. It is GREAT to see extreme acts using their music to address or bring awareness to socio-political issues:
“Violent Upheaval is an Indo-American death metal band with hints of crust and grind elements. The band was formed in 2015 as a portal to speak about the atrocities committed by the current Indian government, which has been instrumental in curtailing freedom of speech and creating religious discord. The band features Patrick Bruss from US-based horror death metal band Crypticus on drums and music production. The band logo was created by Russian artist Viktoria Polikarpova, who will also design the artwork and inlay of our debut EP, which will release in the coming months on a reputed label. More details to follow.”
