Singaporean metal band Rudra sign to Transcending Obscurity


“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. It’s only fitting for a band that’s highly prominent in Asia to get a separate distinction, to be the first band signed to this leg, and remain most conspicuous. Rudra’s new album is called ‘Enemy of Duality’ and it once again delves into the realm of Indian spirituality.

Transcending Obscurity owner Kunal Choksi announces, “It’s 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. It’s with utmost pleasure that I announce Rudra‘s 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 it’s 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 here’s 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.” is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world.
