India’s forerunners of black metal blasphemy Heathen Beast, have released the cover and rear artwork of their upcoming third EP, provocatively titled The Carnage of Godhra. If the title and artwork leave any stone unturned regarding the questions that this EP could be raising, the tracklisting definitely compensates for them:
- The Carnage of Godhra
- Ab ki Baar, Atyachar
- Gaurav Yatra (The Aftermath)
Thematically, the band has returned to the communal violence of the Godhra riots of 2002, which left hundreds of innocent Muslims slaughtered mercilessly in the name of Hinduism. Musically, the band’s direction remains to be a surprise. Merchandise of the band can be ordered here.
