Sri Lanka’s longest running metal band Stigmata release new record


“Sri Lanka’s biggest and probably longest running heavy metal band have released their magnum opus in The Ascetic Paradox. Easily their most ambitious effort to date, containing unique patterns and rhythms, Stigmata are forging their own sound while paying tribute to the genre’s legends. The final music is hard to directly compare to any band – their structures are highly unpredictable, the inherent rollicking groove and beats are atypical and smack of a regional sound, and on the whole it’s a very vibrant and interesting affair with superbly-orchestrated chaos possessing sublime rhythmic sense. Immerse yourselves into the highly active and colourful world of Stigmata, where each song carries a concept and has a special matching artwork to boot.” – Transcending Obscurity is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world.
