My goodness! Even though this Osaka based Japanese outfit only released its debut EP in 2009, and can therefore still be seen as a relatively young band, I'm still wondering slightly why I'd never heard of this wacky collective before!

Demonic Resurrection

Despite the enormous population, India might not house so much internationally acclaimed Metal-acts.
