We, at Headbangers India, have been excited about this for a while now, and it’s finally here! Roadcrew Records has just announced the release of a split CD featuring Mumbai based horror/heavy metal band Albatross and Connecticut based occult/heavy metal band Vestal Claret. The CD will officially be launched at Albatross’s album release gig the 30th of March at Star Rock, Chennai. It contains two tales of darkness, morbidity and despair. To know a little more about this release, do some catching up by checking out this interview we conducted a while ago.
‘The Kissing Flies’ is Albatross’s follow up to the critically acclaimed ‘Dinner is You’. This time it tells the story of a town which is on the verge of death, and is infested by demonic flies who’re drawn to this death and decay. The EP features guest performances by Niklas Stalvind (Wolf), Murari Vasudevan (Rat King) and The Demonstealer (Demonic Resurrection). Albatross will support this EP with a multi city album tour across venues in India.
