Hyderabad, India’s death metal force GODLESS has issued their highly-anticipated debut LP, States Of Chaos.
From their inauspicious origins within a very exotic metal music scene, GODLESS slowly rose to the very top of India’s death metal class. Interestingly, throughout this gradual but inexorable climb, the members of the band didn’t distinguish themselves for bringing innovations to the genre so much as for their unapologetic commitment to pure, unadulterated, lightning-fast, ear-shredding, thrash-influenced death metal.
Over time, GODLESS has proven themselves to be at the vanguard of the metal movement in the subcontinent, and with their debut LP, States Of Chaos, the band aims to propel their brand of death metal to more parts of the globe more than ever before.
States Of Chaos sees GODLESS delivering eight intense and unfaltering tracks of their thrash-laced death metal which promise to pummel the listener into submission. Thematically, the album explores topics hinging on psychological trepidation and terror and phantasmagorias of dreamscapes that are sure to induce nightmares.
The drums on States Of Chaos were recorded at Wind Horse Recording Studios, the guitars and bass recorded at Infinity Studios, and the vocals recorded at Hydrozoa HQ, with all recordings engineered by the band’s Abbas Razvi. GODLESSsummoned the devastating sound of Poland’s Hertz Studio (Vader, Behemoth, Decapitated) to handle the mixing and mastering duties for the album, and the result is a uniquely vicious-sounding record that takes no prisoners. The album is completed with artwork and design by New Salem and photography by David Dawson.
Vocalist Kaushal LS writes with the release of their latest single, “‘Fluxion’ marks the first song that we’ve worked on with the new drummer. This song features some of the most incendiary and unhinged work on the upcoming full-length record. The song’s lyrics render visceral images of a seemingly bizarre transmutation; parallels could be drawn between the song’s lyrics and the album’s name itself.”
