Sairaj R Kamath The 2015 version of a Yearly Compilation so packed to the gills with Indian and International metal releases that you no longer have an excuse for "not finding underground music."

MUST. HAVE. Favorite track: Tyrannizer (Mumbai, India) - Bloodstain (Death/Thrash Metal).

Bantering Ram This is one monster of a compilation! A fantastic sampler of metal music from across the world and a headbanger's banquet. Kudos to Transcending Obscurity for putting this together.

lust4metal Excellent introduction to the diverse Indian metal scene. Some real gems in this mammoth sampler. Well worth a listen! Favorite track: Third Sovereign (Aizwal, India) - Devolution of Mortality (Death Metal).

joshua decker Transcending Obscurity is, if I'm not mistaken, the only India based metal music outfit that promotes/releases top shelf metal music of all types. That is a standout achievement alone, but standing at the top of the global metal scrap heap, as well, is an incredible accomplishment - but Transcending Obscurity does just that.

65 tracks for free to get you in tune with the label you should support at any moment you're able, tireless love and pushing of incredible metal should not go un-rewarded.

about

Since 2005, Transcending Obscurity has been trying to promote metal music from around the world, first as a webzine, then as a record label, and now also as a PR company (www.tometal.com). Starting with the first release (now sold out) of the obscure band called THE DEAD from Australia, the label has come far, having over 50 bands under its roster, be it on the main international label or the sub-label and their respective distribution legs. Transcending Obscurity can arguably be called one of the biggest labels for underground music, even though it's based in Mumbai, India - which has only been a massive challenge so far. Against all odds though, the quality of the products, distribution network, and promotional reach have only gotten better and with the support of its loyal fans, can hope to help more and more bands from all over.

Please buy original music and support the store as much as possible! Here's the link - www.tometal.com/store

MTV - "for all those who listen to metal, want to listen to it but don’t know where to start or are those people who like trying one new thing every single day, the Transcending Obscurity Label Sampler Vol. 1 will keep you busy well into 2016."

Rolling Stone India - "“There will be Indian bands and international bands merging on this one compilation,” says Choksi of the sampler, which he will put together as an annual Christmas special."

The Monolith (UK) - "This impressive compilation is the work of Transcending Obscurity, a metal webzine, label and PR company led by editor, label head and artist Kunal Choksi whose valiant efforts to get his local scene globalised has led to this monolithic release. All of this has been made possible, more or less, by him singlehandedly with the vision of “...exposing Indian bands to an international audience and foreign bands to a local audience.“"

Track Name: Fetid Zombie (US) - Lure of the Occult (Death Metal)
Desire the secrets
Inner-workings of the will
Engage the forbidden
Ancient wisdom revealed
Unravel the mysteries
Both guarded and divine
Engage the black arts
To reveal the light
Kill thyself
To know thyself
The path to wisdom
Self transmutation
Lead into gold
Wisdom unfolds
The desire to know
The snake sheds his skin
A new tail grows
A new path begins
Track Name: Preludium (Poland) - Sins of Mankind (Spiritual Black/Death Metal)
Jealousy
Of the pernicious kind
Causes self-destruction
Through karmic retribution

Hatred
Decimates peace of mind
Causes mental imbalance
Emotions raging out of control

Greed
Wanting for more than desired
Causes endless dissatisfaction
Never content, never happy

Treachery
Is the worst of all sins
Causes magnified suffering
For betrayal of trust and faith

Suicide
Is irredeemable
Causes one to be reborn in dire state
For transgressing the life of a human soul
