Heathen Beast Releasing "$cam"

Indian black metal group Heathen Beast will release "$cam" this coming June, and the band recently announced a comeback with this statement:

"Sometimes there are things in life which you cannot just let pass. Sometimes you have to speak up and not be a silent spectator. We once hinted at doing a grindcore EP and there was no better time to do it than now, the very essence of the music and the subject are synonymous. While this isn't 'pure' grindcore and it's the essence of the genre that we took and blended it with our own style."

The statement is in reference to the shocking demonetization policy made in November of 2016 that put all 500 and 1000 Rupee notes out of commission overnight and brought the nation to a complete standstill in an effort to combat the black market. Poor people were affected the most as they didn't have bank accounts or credit cards and had to rely on cash payments only.

The "'$cam" track listing will be as follows:

1. Surgical Strike (De-modi-tisation)
2. It's Only A Minor Inconvenience
3. Fuck Poor People, I Have Paytm
4. Reliance Is The Secret Of My Energy, Jio Mere Lal!
5. If The Army Can Do It, So Can You
6. Bailing Out The Banks
7. If You Disagree You Are Anti-national, Go To Pakistan
8. My Note Has GPS
9. Chutiya Banaya Bada Maza Aaya More...

Heathen Beast Releases New Music Video

Indian black metal act Heathen Beast has released a new music video for the song "Contaminating The Ganges," which comes off the band's latest EP "The Drowning of the Elephant God" and can be viewed below.

Heathen Beast also commented on its sound and lyrical themes:

"Heathen Beast believes in no god and no religion. We write about the world and it's religion as we see it, we write about how it encompass and controls the masses in our country India. Our music symbolizes self belief and the fact that we choose our own path and make our own destiny. There is no God that writes your life and not everything that is bad in this world is a consequence of that karma. You are responsible. Heathen Beast plays a form of brutal metal to connect with those who think like we do. The Heathen Beast Shall Be Unleashed Upon Thee.

"Heathen Beast is the formation of three. Carvaka who believes religion was invented and made up by men, having no divine authority. Samkhya who denies the existence of God. Mimamsa who rejects the notion of God and says that human action itself is enough to create the necessary circumstances for the enjoyment of its fruits."
