Strangulate are a new force in the Indian death metal underground. Along with Third Sovereign and Biopsy, they are taking the raw and brutal aesthetic and merging the sound to create something scathing, vicious, and laden with hooks. This is a death metal fan's wet dream. 'Catacombs of Decay' is a new chapter in old school death metal brutality, the band's first, and they go straight for the jugular, leaving no stone unturned in creating death metal of the highest order, with passion, well-timed variations, and a superb drumming performance. The whole album is vibrating with raw energy and dripping with old school appeal, that would make the genre's legends like Suffocation, Cannibal Corpse, Malevolent Creation and Vader proud for paving the way for them. Their methodical songwriting is par excellence and this debut will go down in history as one of the best from the region.
