As a young lad in a developing scene, who had just discovered death metal, my introduction to Third Sovereign happened back in 2007 when their full length ‘Destined to Suffer’ came out. The band’s brutal, straightforward approach to death metal fascinated my young mind and it was my first encounter with death metal from India. As the years passed, death metal in the country branched out into different styles while Third Sovereign lie dormant in terms of releases. After 9 years, the band prepares to make a comeback on Transcending Obscurity India with their second full length, titled ‘Perversion Swallowing Sanity’. Though there is a wide gap between the releases, the band’s sound harkens back to the first couple of albums and they manage to sound as brutal as ever.
