Albatross – Release Debut Album ‘Fear From The Skies’

ALBATROSS (India) – ‘Fear from the Skies’ ALBATROSS, arguably India’s most well-known heavy metal band, release their début full length on Transcending Obscurity India. After releasing two well known albums, one EP and one split, the members have spent years perfecting their magnum opus titled ‘Fear from the Skies’. With impeccable production values, every note is cleanly heard, every chord strikes a deadly blow and equipped with exceptional storytelling skills, the album resonates as a chilling two-fold concept well after it is over. From the fictional character “Jugglehead the Clown” to the tale of the “flying assassin” this album has a lurid lyrical theme brought to life by the juicy and vibrant clean singing vocals of Biprorshee Das, punctuated by the classy solos of three guitarists in the band. In every department ALBATROSS shine like no other, rich in compositions, execution and memorability. This is a must for fans of KING DIAMOND and IRON MAIDEN in particular – but it comes with a wicked twist.

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!
