It's tempting to compare Dhwesha to Bolt Thrower--crushing mid-paced death band with melodic lead guitar work and songs about war. But that comparison doesn't quite do these guys justice. They're doing more than just following a well-established template. Much is made in extreme metal of bands' geographic origins, but usually the influence of place is more imagined than discernible. But I don't think Dhwesha could have come from anywhere but India.
Favorite track: Hoy! Sala.
They are one & the only best Old School Death Metal outfit from Bangalore, India. I've been to 6 or 7 gigs of this band. They sound way too heavy but completely groovy with haunting killer riffs. They are Bangalore's very own "Bolt Thrower"
Favorite track: Sthoopa.
This is the debut album of DHWESHA, including rolling Death Metal originating directly from the unfathomed Origins of mystical cultures combined with an obeisance to the dark gods of the original scene.
Brute, yet melodic riffs, furnished with vocals sounding as if they came from the depths of infinite catacombs. The indian Death Metal band DHWESHA present their first album, including eight occult und dark formulas in the essence of a rotten Death Metal ritual !
The darkest vocals ever heard break through the massive riffs and speak of ancient rites and deepest denial of human ignorance. Fans of ARCHGOAT, DEAD CONGREGATION & old BOLT THROWER will be pleased.
