Kapala have instantly bombarded their way into the annals War Metal history, since they released their first EP back in 2017. Hailing from the mystical and violent Kolkata, the band perfectly combines all the aspects of nowadays extreme Underground music into one menacing whole. A perfect balance between cacophany and fast, catchy riffing, blast beats that drill their way into unsuspecting ears and guttural commands spewing forth hatred for this world and glorious supremacy. It is with the greatest pride that Dunkelheit Produktionen presents Kapala's new release "Doomsday Requiem".
Clocking at 22 minutes this newest bullet into the head of weakness is technically an EP but still offers more than enough material to satisfy the hungry crowd. After a short intro, "Exodus of Victory" instantly reminds the listener why Kapala are an absolute top-tier War Metal outfit. The sound is deep and crisp, hammering like an army of iron fists mowing down armies of scum. Unlike lesser bands, these Indians present songs full of analogue realness and genuine destructive feel. Absolute war, but always with the right amount of order to highlight the impressive musical craftsmanship hidden under the pitch-black vitriol.
As the title already suggests, "Doomsday Requiem" appears like a call to war, propaganda for the absolute end to all creation. Dark and full frequencies dance like Shiva in Trance while death gods harvest human skulls on ancient battlefields of Indian legends. Utter brutality freely flows between Death Metal and the best structural aspects of Harsh Noise creating a result which is nothing short of breathtaking.
To say that this new Kapala release is mandatory would be an understatement. Not only is this Warnoise at its absolute finest, "Doomsday Requiem" - just as the previous releases by the band - is a release fit enough to tread new paths and define this subgenre. Pray for Annihilation!
