Fragarak, From Delhi With Rage


Quick: When I say music from India, what's the first thing that comes to mind? Yep, it's that traditional middle-eastern music that most westerners have little to no interest in. If you're a music nerd (Me:check) and a Beatles fan (Me: check again), you may have come up with Ravi Shankar, the gifted Sitar player who introduced George Harrison to the instrument and taught him how to play the instrument properly. Progressive death metal, however, should not be your first thought... until now. Relative new-comers to the genre Fragarak hail from New Dehli and released a MONSTER ALBUM this year, "A Spectral Oblivion", on Transcending Obscurity India records. It's absolutely everything you'd expect from a progressive death record: a thundering rhythm section, extremely well executed guitars, and vocals that run the gambit from growls to tortured screams to angelic choirs- just from a very unlikely source. Their newest single, The Phaneron Eclipsed, dropped this week and if you can manage to turn off the non-stop Mariah Carey and Celine Dion Christmas onslaught for ten minutes, you'll be richly rewarded. Rage on! JPR
