Formed in the bylanes of Bassein, Mumbai in 2017, the Indian five-piece thrashers SABOTAGE channels the cut-throat boldness and the unceasing exuberance of the Bay Area thrash metal. The group has already made a remarkable impression nationally by becoming two-time finalists of Wacken Metal Battle – India.
The quintet’s first-ever release, The Order of Genocide, comes out on CD and digital format on August 03rd. The EP contains four frenzied and ruthless tracks, strictly following the scripture of old school thrash metal. The subjects of the song rotate from failed judicial systems, anti-political norms to serial killers.
With high-velocity live assaults and dynamic song-structures, SABOTAGE is surely a great addition to the fast-growing Indian underground metal.
“The title track of this EP is loosely based on power-hungry hounds who will ensure they stoop to any level to retain the authority.
“The most valid innuendo would be politicians who would orchestrate division in the name of religion, caste and win their vote banks to be the central powerhouse just to chew the common man and spit ’em out! The song is our way of telling these hounds to fuck off!”
