Hailing from Kalikshetra, India's APARTHIVA RAKTADHARA burst into ultra-violent being as the power-trio destroyed all doubters with 'Adyapeeth Maranasamhita'. This first full-length reaches far into realms previously unfathomed, sharpening their martial-and-mesmerizing attack to a katana-like degree. That their songwriting has become ever more dizzying whilst evincing a remarkable sense of focus makes Adyapeeth Maranasamhita an even-more-diabolical display of occult mathematics than its brash predecessor. The lyrical themes explored include Sunyata, impermanence, and Apophatic Theology. Indeed, the power-trio bring those heady topics to bear across the album's six-song/35-minute runtime, twisting and turning a near-overwhelming amount of information into something that's paradoxically single-minded and trance-inducing. Stultifyingly feral, absurdly complex: truly, there will be no other death metal record quite like this, this year or any other.
