Rudra Announces Details of Eighth Album

​Rudra Announces Details of Eighth Album!


RUDRA has been one of the longest surviving Asian Metal bands that has been active for two and a half decades. The band is ​often ​considered as the true pioneer of Vedic Metal that creates a blend of both Extreme Metal and Indian Classical/Carnatic (Folk) music with Sanskrit and English lyrics. The band’s compositions have been lauded by both fans and critics over the years and have also been a subject of study by musicologists and music lovers.​

The band’s eighth album which is set to release in the later part of the year features a number of renowned guest artists who have collaborated-

  1. Brothers Krsna Tan and Govind Tan who play the Sitar and Tabla respectively have been roped in to contribute for this album. They are trained in Indian Classical instruments and have played hundreds of shows all over and have shared stages with other reputed names.
  1. Aishwarya who part of the band’s previous albums Brahmavidya- Primordial-I and Transcendental-I will be returning to make appearance with this eighth album!
  1. DAMARU is a well known Indian percussion group that is marking its presence with this album.

The album is in the finishing stages and Kathir the band’s front man says he’s excited to work alongside some of the artists and comments, “This album is something that is going to explore the inner depths of the Mandukya Upanishads, something newer and very philosophical”​.

​ He also adds that, “The upcoming album is going to be fast and will be slightly different from the previous release“​.




About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
