“Vedic metal pioneers from Singapore, Rudra, are going to release their new full length album through a newly created label division for Asia called Transcending Obscurity Asia. Its only fitting for a band thats highly prominent in Asia to get a separate distinction, to be the first band signed to this leg, and remain most conspicuous. Rudras new album is called Enemy of Duality and it once again delves into the realm of Indian spirituality.
Transcending Obscurity owner Kunal Choksi announces, Its an absolute dream come true to work with one of the most deserving bands from this part of the world. Rudra are real metal warriors, trailblazers, and not just that, they have been proliferated the theme of ancient Indian philosophy since decades, which is something very close to my heart. Its with utmost pleasure that I announce Rudras signing for their new album on the newly formed label-division, Transcending Obscurity Asia. Having done enough for deserving and obscure bands from the Indian subcontinent, via TO India and TO Distribution, I feel its time to also focus on bands from Asia metal this side of the world has always remained overlooked, despite the interest from all over, and heres hoping that Rudra will lead the way in carving a solid image for Asian bands that happen to be not just world class, but also perhaps superior to the Western counterparts in some ways.
Kathir of Rudra comments Shiva, Simon, Vinod & I are truly excited about our signing to Transcending Obscurity Asia. Presenting the new album, Enemy of Duality, via Transcending Obscurity is definitely going to make a huge difference in the way our music has been marketed and distributed. We truly look forward to working with Kunal Choksi who has been one of the most passionate guys we have met in years in wanting to genuinely promote metal.
