Indian deathgrind band Catatonic was formed in 2020 and is heavily rooted in hardcore while incorporating elements from death metal, grindcore, sludge, thrash, etc. The band sites The Melvins, The Jesus Lizard, Converge, Napalm Death, as influences. They were kind enough to send us some song explanations for a couple of their latest releases and then further below check out their brand new split record featuring themselves and a grindcore/powerviolence band called Jigsaw Blues also from their scene.
“The song ‘Deity in Furs’ addresses organized religion and how people are governed by fear. It talks about how people are so scared to question that they choose to follow blindly and are slaves to their God.”
“The song ‘Atrocity Exhibition’ is our latest song that we released a few months ago. We definitely feel this song hasn’t gotten the recognition it deserves. It is about the atrocities of man: war, violence, discrimination, abuse, police brutality, etc.”
And below enjoy their brand new split release with Jigsaw Blues. “It’s politically charged. It talks about how crooked the people in positions of authority are, and the ignorance of the people that put them in those positions. And the legacy of shame they leave behind them.”
Go support a band that has a LOT to say.
