The Underground Infamy Tour 3 feat. Gotsu Totsu Kotsu

The Underground Infamy Tour 3



Eumsn & Brutal Pokhara bring you Gotsu Totsu Kotsu from Japan. If you come to see them and the perverted supporting bands, like ??????? you will sink into the abyss of a new dark age. Let us all brace ourselves to our duties of head banging and moshing, so we can bare the pain of it all.


I like to think of myself as a modern-day Samurai writer, and I carry my sword concealed as a laptop. But GTK is the real thing. Well, as close as you can come to the real thing. In GTK, Haruhisa performs vox, with Hirotaka on drums and Keichi Enjoji on guitar. They produce a fury and might that will just blow you away. GTK’s first album was in 2009, titled Mouryou, then Legend of Shadow in 2013, and Retributive Justice on 5/13/16.


Their lyric music video is at (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcUcGIjiIR8). Check it out first! Other GTK stuff can be found at www.metals-archives.com/reviews/, or listen to them at (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UDk7JI29hI. GTK’s hard-hitting lyrics contain a drop of old-time Japanese grandeur, and combined with their death/thrash metal sound, make it easy for you to envision how brutal the Samurais’ efforts were to conquer their opponents, and preserve their life of strong fellowship. The feel of the bloody and sacred rituals of these warriors will burst through your bloody ears. Fans will be waiting in the pit, prepared for blows. This showdown at The Underground Infamy Tour 3 will dash all hopes of survival.


 Gotsu-Totsu-Kotsu will be invading the following cities:

1.) Kathmandu, Nepal : EP releases gig of Asphyxiate brought to you by Eumsn
2.) Damak, Nepal : Khatra Fest brought to you by Hardcore Rajya          
3.) Sikkim, India : Gangtok Deathfest II brought to you by Extreme Underground Sikkim
4.) Bangalore, India : Banngalore Deathfest brought to you by Extreme Underground India

Dip - (Drummer at Torture Goregrinder): Nowadays doing live gigs to spread our music. It feels amazing.

Suchu - Can i get the story of your band and biography? What is the meaning of Torture Goregrinder to the band?
Dip : Torture goregrinder actual means, Such a implement by which bloodshed occurs by persecution. 

        Biography-
        WE ARE A GUTTURAL SLAMMING GOREGRGIND DEATH METAL BAND FROM BANGLADESH. WHICH WAS STARTED ON JULY 14th, 2010. WE ARE INTERESTED TO CREATE NEW FUCKING ERA IN BANGLADESHI UNDERGRUOND MUSIC.THE HISTORY OF TORTURE GOREGRINDER GOES WAY BACK WHEN THE VOCALIST DANIAL SICK USED TO SING FOR SOME UNDERGROUND DEATH METAL BANDS IN DHAKA. BUT HIS ACTUAL TASTE IN MUSIC WAS SLAM DEATH OR SLAMMING BRUTAL DEATH METAL AND HE WANTED TO DO THIS PARTICULAR GENRE IN BANGLADESH CAUSE NO BAND HAVE TRIED THIS ONE BEFORE. IN HIS FIRST ATTEMPTS HE FAILED TO GATHER THE DESIRED PEOPLE WHO WERE CAPABLE OF PLAYING IN THIS PARTICULAR GENRE. AFTER MANY SEARCHES HE ASKED TAWKIR KHAN JOY TO PLAY GUITARS. IN THE MEANTIME JOY WAS PLAYING WITH DANIAL WITH ANOTHER BAND CALLED ROSHAYON. HE ALSO RECRUITED ANOTHER MEMBER FROM ROSHAYON NAMED FAYSAL TO JOIN FORCES WITH JOY IN THE GUITAR SECTION. AFTER THE TWO GUITARISTS FILLED IN, IT WAS TIME THEY NEEDED A GOOD DRUMMER FOR THE INTENSE DRUMMING. FORTUNATELY THEY RECRUITED DIP ROY FROM A BAND CALLED CHAKROBYUHO. AFTER THAT THEY STARTED JAMMING AND MOVED ON UNTIL THEY CAME TO A TIME WHEN THEY THOUGHT OF NEEDING A BASSIST. UNSUCCESSFUL OF FINDING A GOOD BASSIST CAPABLE TO FIT THE GENRE, THEY RECRUITED ASHFAQ. AFTER COUPLE OF GIGS UNFORTUNATELY FAYSAL LEFT THE BAND FOR SOME PERSONAL REASONS AND THEN THEY CONTINUED WITH JOY FOR SOME SHOWS. AFTER SOME SHOWS THEY THOUGHT THEY NEEDED TO COMPOSE SOME OF THEIR OWN STUFF JUST TO GIVE THE GENRE A STAND IN THE UNDERGROUND COMMUNITY. OVEE, THEN PLAYING IN A BAND CALLED GRACE CONTACTED DANIAL AND SHOWED HIS KEEN INTEREST IN JOINING THE BAND AND FILLING IN AS THE BASSIST. DANIAL AND THE OTHERS AGREED AND OVEE STARTED JAMMING WITH FULL FORCE WITH THE BAND AND CONSECUTIVELY THE BAND CAME UP WITH THE DEBUT TRACK MOGOJE GORVOPAT (???????????). AFTER THE RELEASE OF THE DEMO OF MOGOJE GORVOPAT SOME PORTION OF THE LISTENERS TOOK THE SONG POSITIVELY AND ENCOURAGED THE BAND TO MOVE ON AND SOME PORTIONS OF THE LISTENERS DIDN'T COMPLETELY TAKE IT. THE BAND HAD MANY CRITISISMS REGARDING THE GENRE AND THE MUSICAL STYLES. THEY HAD ALSO MANY OBSTACLES FINDING THEIR PLACE IN THE SMALL PORTION OF THE EXTREME METAL LISTENERS OF BANGLADESH AS ONLY SMALL PROPORTIONS KNEW WHAT SLAM DEATH ACTUALLY MEANT AND SOUNDED LIKE. AND THE BAND KNEW THAT PIONEERING A SPECIFIC EXTREME GENRE IN A COUNTRY LIKE BANGLADESH IS HARD. IN THE MID OF MARCH 2015 , THE BAND GOT ENLISTED IN WIKIPEDIA'S LIST OF SLAM DEATH METAL BANDS AROUND THE WORLD AND ENLISTED IN Encyclopedia Metallum: The Metal Archives
AND IT MADE THEM MORE COURAGIOUS. NOW THEY HAVE RELEASED THEIR DEBUT ALBUM ''FATAL GONORRHEA DISFIGUREMENT JANUARY 5TH 2017.

Suchu - What are the lyrical themes you use in your song? Gore, horror, politics, anti religion etc..
Dip: The lyric theme, represent what the slammy genre about psychopath. We mainly focus on brutality, gore, serial killing, faithless, perversion etc. and things that are related with them. In one word, we mainly focus on all the negative aspects of a person’s life.

Suchu - How it feels to be in an Underground band? And for how many years you are in this scene?
Dip: Obviously its feel very special. Underground music has so much inner definition. But we believe this the place, from where to learn a lot of things. Still a long way to go, But as an underground band we like to hear that and we've been there for 4 years in this scene.

Suchu - Which are the bands that have influenced your band most?
Dip: Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus, Suffocation, Devourment, Severe Torture, and Necrophagist
Suchu - What are the future plans of Torture Goregrinder? Any tours, releases, recordings etc.
Dip: Umm we've so many plans. Cause we have to spread our music all over our country. its very important. People yet haven’t enough idea about slam death metal in our country. So we'll doing live gigs in our land and making new stuff for upcoming split album. If there are tour in front we'll let know our by Facebook page.

Suchu - How do you feel about the classifications in metal? Like deathcore, metalcore and other subgenres.. 
Dip: Every people have own taste. SO classification in metal music is very important issue. I feel very glad that metal music have so many limb. we like deathcore and other stuff, Those who don't want to hear their disrelish song, I always say don’t need to hear that. But don't criticize any genre in public place or social network.

Suchu - In general term metal isn't appreciated by Society what do you have to say on this?
Dip: Those who run the society, they themselves do many misdeeds. So Metal music shows to right thing to local culture or society. Its very common issue they don't accept this type of ritual because If they accept it, their individualism will not succeed. So we have to do that. 

Suchu - What is your opinion on sites posting Underground Materials?
Dip: First of all people can discover new face and new music. If the band from another country it will wondrous. So that local people or daily reader population can understand What do they want to do and what is their purpose? After that i think more support will come from mainstream music.

Suchu - Ok, what do you want to tell those peoples who rips off the band hard work and illegally downloads their music?
Dip: Just one thing ''Fuck you guys'' I mean creating music its like giving birth to a baby. Mother had such trouble as to give birth to a child Just like musicians make a lot of trouble to create music. On the other hand if the band allows to download songs, Its there personal issue. 

Suchu - Beside Torture Goregrinder do you have any other projects you have? If then, Can you tell us about those projects in few words?
Dip: Yes i have another project. I have another band called "Chaukrobyuho'' Total modern thrash metal act. We are working on our full-length album. Also we doing live gigs.

Suchu - Is it hard surviving in underground Scene?
Dip: If you have guts u can survive. Underground metal music scene believe, As much as you have lot of money and lot of good gear, but if u can't play original stuff clearly, your band or your reputation will down. So in one word "NO GUTS NO GLORY (Bolt thrower)''

        On the other hand, its very hard to survive in underground scene. Cause those who are organize the show, they don’t get sponsor from any side. Cause The sponsor community and local security get terrified when they heard ''Metal concert''??? They think its degenerate culture. And it will harm society.
  
        Maybe you have seen before. A Reputable Brazilian death metal act ''Krisiun'' it was about coming to the country. Though local metal community called ‘The Metal Morgue’ organized the show. But Sad thing is Krisiun show was not done for the security reason. So as a underground musician I feel its very hard to survive in underground metal scene in our land. But no one can stop us for sure. We will conquer one day.

Suchu - Metal has to be underground or metal has to go mainstream, what's your opinion?
Dip: Metal music has to be underground. I believe an underground band has the ability to gain a significant amount of credibility within the scene, at the expense of a smaller fan base. But when mass people can afford metal music then other steps can be taken.

Suchu - What is your opinion on the current state of underground metal?
Dip: Feel free to say, our underground scene moving towards progress. I have seen metal tides for the last two years. There are so many underground show in different cities like Dhaka/Chittagong/Khulna/Rajhshahi/Sylhet/Rangamati/Noakhali and gradually the mass people can accept it. Positive issue.

Suchu - Which is the album you want to take to your grave?

Dip: Quite hard question though, So far as many albums I've bought and heard, I want to take all the graves :D 

Suchu - Can you recommend us some good bands from your country for our readers?
Dip: Sure, If I talk about genre based and active bands then in 
        Death metal and brutal tech death. 
       Orator/Severe dementia/Warhound/Nekrohowl/Homicide/Infuscation/
        Power of ground

Suchu - Where do our readers can buy or listen to Torture Goregrinder and any other merchandise?

Suchu - Do you remember your first show with Torture Goregrinder, How was it and how did the crowd reacted to your first show?
Dip: Yes I remember TGG's first show back in 2013 (Louder the hell series Concert). I was so hyped about our debut gig. Because I played Hard rock and heavy metal before, SO what would happen if we play death metal in normal based metal show, This was interesting incident. Though we did our gig very well. We covered Cannibal corpse/Six feet under and Sever torture.

Suchu - Metal Fans from Nepal doesn't have a proper way to reach your records and any other such bands, Is there an easy way so we can also get the hold of CDs, shirts etc.

Suchu - Do you have any plans to come to Kathmandu (Nepal) in coming days?
Dip: Yes we have a plan to come in Nepal, obviously after show organizer confirmation.

Shillong Deathfest 2 (July 8th 2017)

Shillong is all set for the 2nd edition of Shillong Death Fest this July.
Founded by Eumss in 2016 and this year it will be the 2nd edition of Shillong death fest. The inaugural show was a huge success and featured 5 bands and was witnessed by over 400 diehard fans. This year we have bands from Japan, Bangladesh and many bands from around India . It will be held in July 8th 2017. Below is the complete list of this year’s event.



Hecate is a black metal band hailing from Shillong. A newly formed band but these guys are no joke and they promise to spread their darkness. Shillong is not much known for black metal so catching them live is a must. Check them out:

Depassionate is one of the new and rising brutal death metal bands from Mairang, Meghalaya. Sticking to their roots these guys will serve some brutal death metal. A band to watch out for!

Tod Fod from Shillong is a new grindcore band and this is their first live performance. Grindcore is also not much known here similar to black metal but these guys are sure they will break the barriers. No links to share their music so come and watch them live.

Chaotic Dread is a brutal death metal band from Nongpoh, Meghalaya. Influenced by bands like Cerebral bore, Dying fetus, Cannibal corpse, Raped by pigs and more so. Expect some face melting death metal from them.

Infected Humanity is another brutal death metal band from Gossaigaon, Assam. These guys mean serious business and yes, they will be ripping your soul apart. Be prepared for some extreme damage.

xREPEATx is yet another grindcore band from Bangalore, India. They recently conquered Nepal and they are ready to teach some ear bleeding grind to Shillong. Beware, they are fast as fuck, short as hell and have some real lovely song names. Some of their originals songs named Public Boner, Airport Whore, Cock Juggling Thunder Cunt, Fuck Doll, Man Slut and many more. Check their EP below:

Nekrohowl is another sensational death metal band from our neighboring country Bangladesh. Drawing influences from bands like Suffocation, Immolation, Death, Sinister, Gorguts, Incantation and more, it is already clear that they know what they are heading to. They mean pure agonizing death metal. Bone crushing 90’s death metal is what they will deliver and they are not to be missed.

Pisakas is a 3 piece death metal band from Bangalore, India. These guys play some unadulterated pure death fucking metal. Highly influenced from bands like Immolation, deeds of flesh, suffocation, gorguts, defeated sanity, Incantation and more. They will give you death with speed and utmost aggression with no compromise.

Plague Throat needs no introduction to any death metal fans in India. Having played all across India and spreading their plague by representing India in Wacken open air. Come along and witness them again this July as they are ready to destroy Shillong with their death metal.

Desecravity will be headlining this year’s Shillong death fest. They are the technical death metal giants from Tokyo, Japan. Currently signed by the esteemed US based record label Willowtip Records, this will their maiden visit to India. Expect some major devastation.

Thanks to our dedicated fans/ supporters and media/sponsors from both in and out of the country. We actually managed to pull out a great memorable gig last year and now we are very close to the 2nd edition of Shillong death fest and its time we repeat history!!

Also Special thanks to our Extreme family (Eumsn, Brutal Pokhara,EUI, EUS, EUNE).

Interview with Belligerent


Belligerent
Official facebook page : Belliegerent
Official bandcamp : listen Belligerent Demo

After I was affiliated to Eumsn (Extreme Underground Metal Society of  Nepal), I was told to administer the interviews with the bands. Few days ago Vishal Dai told me about "Belligerent" which grabbed my attention and lead to this interview. So here is the interview with the band Belligerent enjoy your time reading and do support and share.

Suchu - What are you doing nowadays?
Mike - I am a full time cook/manager at local restaurant Pj Whelihans, engaged to be married, and I front Belligerent with a bunch of down ass dudes. We have been writing all new songs and can't wait to play them live.

Suchu - Can i get the story of your band and biography? What is the meaning of Belligerent to the band?
Mike - Belligerent rose from the ashes of many of bands that were formulated through out the years amongst the members in this band. This band has members from South Jersey locals such as Landmine, Barbaric, and Enemies Deceased. So we all came from a good amount of hardcore background and influence. The meaning of Belligerent is right in the name. We don't take no shit and when you come at us we come right back at you. Full force.

Suchu - What are the lyrical themes you use in your song?gore, horror, politics, anti religion etc..
Mike - Real shit. LOL. We sing about people that backstab us who we thought were our boys, we have songs about fallen friends, we have a few about how it feels to be judged when you have a problem with addiction, we have a title track about what we represent as a band, we have another about growing up. And personally we don't fuck with politics. That shit is for the birds. LOL.

Suchu - How it feels to be in an Underground band? And for how many years you are in this scene?
Mike - Being in a band period is great. And we are all in our 30s, so we have been doing this thing for almost 20 years. 

Suchu - Which are the bands that have influenced your band most?
Mike - Blood For Blood, Converge, Minor Threat, S.O.D., Hatebreed, Terror, Shattered Realm, Crowbar to name a few.

Suchu - What are the future plans of Belligerent? any tours, releases, recordings etc.
Mike - Right now we are just writing music, and we only have 2 shows lined up. But we do plan on putting out a record before the end of this year or early 2018.

Suchu - How do you feel about the classifications in metal? like deathcore, metalcore and other subgenres.. 
Mike - Fuck a genre. You listen to what you listen to and if someone clowns you for it, then they themselves are the clown. 

Suchu - In general term metal isn't appreciated by Society what do you have to say on this?
Mike - Fuck society. 

Suchu - What is your opinion on sites posting Underground Materials?
Mike - If this is pertaining to music, then good. Post it up. But if you really want to support the band, buy their shit. 

Suchu - Ok, what do you want to tell those peoples who rips off the band hard work and illegally downloads their music?
Mike - Meh, you'll get that anywhere. Just keep writing your shit and maybe one day you'll end up like Metallica and start suing everyone that illegally downloads your shit. LOL.

Suchu - Beside Belligerent do you have any other projects you have? If then, Can you tell us about those projects in few words?
Mike - My drummer and I started a side project called Square Up, but it still has a waysssss to go. 

Suchu - Is it hard surviving in underground Scene?
Mike - We don't really tour like that considering our lives outside of being a band, but yes if we all didn't have full time jobs it would be near impossible to survive off the income the underground scene has to offer. 

Suchu - Metal has to be underground or metal has to go mainstream, what's your opinion?
Mike - Both. It depends on what you truly want to do with your musical endeavors. Keep it underground and raw, or take it to a studio and make it fresh and new sounding. That all depends on your band and what they want out of it. 

Suchu - What is your opinion on the current state of underground metal?
Mike - It's strong, and it will keep getting tougher as long as kids still come out to shows. 

Suchu - Which is the album you want to take to your grave?
Mike - Converge- “Jane Doe”

Suchu - Can you recommend us some good bands from your country for our readers?
Mike - Departed, Cognitive, Corpse Hoarder, Kill The Stigmatic, Eaten Alive, Hate Diplomacy, Ground, Dissent, Prosper or Perish, Gloves Off, Barbaric, Time Spent, Concrete, Blasphemous, One With Nothing, Dark Waters End, Emblugeonment, Splitwig, Drawn Out, The Filthy Boys, The Badluck 13 Riot Extravaganza, Sparklefight, Disinhume, Urban Resist, Eye of the Destroyer, Kids These Days, Sunbreaker, Duress, Your Persona, and there are sooooo many more to name. I just can't think of anymore right now haha.

Suchu - Support Underground Metal, how much you agree on this quote?
Mike - Hell yea!

Suchu - Where do our readers can buy and listen Belligerent and any other merchandise?
Mike - We have a link to our Bandcamp, on the bands Facebook page and all songs are free to the public. Merch can be purchased from our BigCartel or coming out to our shows. 

Suchu - Do you remember your first show with Belligerent, How was it and how did the crowd reacted to your first show?
Mike - We opened a local show at a bar/venue named Harpers, and surprisingly for our first show there was a good amount of heads and we didn't do bad at all. A couple of kids moshed and moved around. All in all it was a great night. Our full set from our first show is up on YouTube if anyone wants to check it out. 

Suchu - Metal Fans from Nepal doesn't have a proper way to reach your records and any other such bands, Is there an easy way so we can also get the hold of cds, shirts etc.

Suchu - Do you have any plans to come to Kathmandu (Nepal) in coming days?
Mike - We would love to, but of course this would take a lot of planning and sufficient funds to be able to make a trip like that. 

Suchu - What do you hate in Underground Metal?like, anything..
Mike - If there is any left, racism. Fuck that shit.
