Karachi Thrash Masters – Tabahi – Back With New Single ‘Politricks’ [Pakistan]

Karachi Thrashers have returned after 7 years with their new single ‘Politricks’, a theme that is parallel to their band name Tabahi. As the song’s name itself and aggressive lyrics suggest, it’s a direct call out of the political brainwashing tricks, hypocrisy, deception, and madness which our society is repeatedly subjected to for decades now.

They preach democracy
They practice hypocrisy
But missing veracity

Eyes above the sky
The Master of Disguise

Tabahi stands out as a Thrash Metal band with its lyrical content targeting Pakistan’s socio-political environment.

Tabahi is a Thrash Metal band from Karachi, a city known as the most violent in Pakistan, and among the world’s most dangerous. A perfect breeding ground for quality thrash metal. Tabahi takes its cues from 80’s German thrash bands such as Destruction and Kreator, armed with some classic pre-86 Bay Area ideas. The band was formed by Faiq Ahmed in 2005 who performs as the Guitarist, while Daniyal Buksh Soomro performs as the vocalist and bassist, and Omair Soomro performs live on drums. With stingy vocals and claustrophobic riffs, the music will take you right into the heart of Pakistan’s most dangerous city with a pure thrash assault that numbs the brain.

Tabahi is all set to release its second album this June 2022. The band’s debut release ‘Fatwa’ in 2012 made its footprint in the metal industry worldwide which was followed up by the band’s debut full-length released in 2014. Tabahi released their first Urdu single Hona Hai, written by the renowned writer Sabir Zafar, in 2017. You can hear the band’s entire output at this link HERE.
