I know I’m late to the party. Not posting that frequently now a days. It is been weeks/months since The Down Troddence, one of my favorite bands in India did a sweep at Rolling Stones Metal Awards, bagging 8 out of 13 awards.

Well, I can go on and on praising this song. It is one of the best tracks India ever produced in my opinion.
The album includes another track called Forgotten Martyrs featuring the “God of Small Strings” himself! (Baiju Dharmajan).Improved versions of their earlier tracks, Death Vanity, ortnIavihS, Shiva are present in the album. Other notable tracks are Hell Within Hell (that wicked carnatic riff) and KFC(breakdowns again).
