Infernal Wrath


Status: Defunct

Origin: Mumbai

Genre: Avante Garde/Brutal death metal

Infernal Wrath is a Mumbai based extreme metal band which formed in early 2005. Their influences include Indian classical and world music, creating a very unique aural landscape and a live experience that has made a lasting impression on audiences in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Goa, Hyderabad and Bangalore. They are surely one of the best live metal acts that the country has seen so far.

Infernal Wrath has its own elaborate band concept. The band believes in the path of self realization that is set to a backdrop of the events preceding the apocalypse which has been foretold in various scriptures which form the basis of various religions and sects all across the globe. As a part of the events that will take place, one of the key figures is that of the ‘messiah’. This expected chosen one is given many different names by various religions of the world. Through the journey of the album, one will realize that the ‘messiah’ is not some third person but we are our own messiah. In today’s time, the foreign and domestic policies that are being made, the present conflicts that are being pursued in our present geo-political scenario by the politicians and the priestly class to pursue their own selfish agendas, use these scriptures to indoctrinate the masses to demand those ‘Armageddon’ like situation to take place, clamming that the ‘messiah’ will appear & their salvation is near.

So, in the light of the present scenario, Infernal Wrath wants to bring out a completely different perspective using the very same texts so that individuals can understand their true goal- the one of self-realization.
