When it comes to the Indian metal scene, there seems to be a sudden rise in the number of records coming out in these past two months. This includes one of, if not the most anticipated album of the year. Albatross’s debut full length has been a long time coming and it’s finally getting released on Transcending Obscurity India this week. ‘Fear from the Skies’ has high expectations from the fans, largely thanks to the EP and split the band had released previously. I’m particularly excited for Albatross’s full length, because I find this band to be a breathe of fresh air amongst the legions of extreme metal bands this country has produced. Another aspect about this band that I appreciate is that they’re story tellers. Each track is an experience with a horrific tale behind it.
