New Delhi-based experimental black metal band Throne Of Regression is back from hiatus and working on their new single. The band posted on Facebook:
"Well, after a lot of fuck-ups including line-up issues, internal disputes etc. the band is again active. And it feels good to be back again. All the past, pending projects are now being started fresh. Obviously with new hopes and spirits. For those of you who don’t know, we are a new/upcoming Black Metal act hailing from New Delhi. Our styles not just stick to one particular theme or sub-genre but we strive to deliver the most innovative Black Metal tone. To give it a precision, one can call us as Progressive Dark. If not, then maybe we would fix right in the place of Experimental Black.
"So, Throne of Regression’s main line-up includes:
Shrey Kathuria on vocals and rhythm guitars.
Ekyum Singh Sawhney on lead guitars.
Gaurav Gorain on bass guitars.
"Yeah, we will be featuring some talented guest artists/instrumentalists from the mighty music circuit in every song we would make. Coming to the drums, we still are in a need of a decent drummer. You can always drop us an inbox or get in touch with Shrey Kathuria (+91-9953069370) about the same. He would love to give interested people further details about the same.
"Well, yes, the music. The band has already started working on the debut single. Keeping those old German lessons we had in 6th grade in mind, we call the first song as Dunklen Passagier. Which, in English, means Dark Passenger. The title and the entire idea for the same was given by the guitarist, Ekyum. All the major artworks for the song are in the process by the band itself.
To be more precise about the progress, we are done programming the drums already. Guitars and bass will be tracked at end of this week. We thank for all the production and recording work Soundplex records. A fresh and new initiative taken by a good friend- Prateek Aggarwal. The man is a monster on the console, trust me!
"So, before I wrap all this up, I would want you to support us with full-heart. A constructive criticism is always welcome..because you are the one for who we will be making music for. Spread a word across, share among your friends and fellows and support Indian Black Metal.
Krampus has posted a new song online titled "Unspoken," which can be heard in the SoundCloud player below. The band comments on the track:
"We have uploaded another new track from our upcoming album 'Survival Of The Fittest,' due August 24th via Noise Art records.
"'Unspoken' is about frustration. Frustration of being a young guy who lives in this global crisis period, with the will to do something, to be realized and to prove his worth, and that is instead entangled in a world that negates him this chance.
"There’s no work, global economy is falling, corruption and injustice are everywhere, there’s not enough space for those who would just like to act and build. It’s not fair that fathers feels like losers even if they work hard because the cannot look after those whom they care. Let us know what you think about the song and its message." More...

Whidbey Island, Washington isn't that remote, but is only accessible via the Port Townsend ferry on the Olympic Peninsula, the Mukilteo ferry north of Seattle and the Deception Pass bridge up by Anacortes. It is in this splendid isolation that one of America's most revered seminal crossover bands, The Accused, found its inspiration. The time was 1981 and the place was the town of Oak Harbor.
Before the beginnings of grunge proliferated to the extent of being a pox on the Seattle area (except for the really good bands), The Accused had already started honing its pioneering hardcore metal sound. There were other bands doing the same thing such as DRI, COC, Cryptic Slaughter and Broken Bones (to name a few), but The Accused came from an area far removed from these other bands and thus had a distinct sound very unlike anyone else.
