Experimental Metal Band Katari Release Debut Singles [India]

Katari is an avant-garde experimental metal outfit out of India developed over the pandemic. Aptly put Katari, meaning narrative, takes influence from world music and channels in their own style. Their lyrical themes include fantasy and sci-fi among others and they present stories through their music.

The first offering from Katari comes with ponderings of Shankul’s mind about the pandemic. Kaiketsu works as a 2-part song: Pestilence and Utopia. Each is chronologically different from the other.

Pestilence talks about an Earth that is similar to ours and is infected by a deadly virus. Humanity is left to reconsider its choices and survive. However, all of humanity is wiped out by the said virus.

Pestilence is followed by the second part of Kaiketsu; Utopia. Where the aforementioned Earth starts to heal itself and eventually turns into a Utopian paradise.
