AZAAB - Release New Single "The Infernal Citadel"

Pakistan Death Metal outfit, AZAAB have released a new single "The Infernal Citadel" ft FIRST FRAGMENT's Phil Tougas, taken from the upcoming new album "Summoning The Cataclysm", out April 15th, 2022.

Straddling the grey areas between old school and technical, melodic and brutal, “Summoning The Cataclysm” is an earthquake of different influences blended together through proficient musicianship.

Indonesian drummer Adhytia Perkasa from legendary act “SiksaKubur” joined the group as a studio session drummer, adding Southeast Asian aggression and flair to the music. His percussion adds the perfect backdrop to the engaging guitar-work while Saad’s deep growls are reminiscent of the classic days of brutal death metal.

The lyrical themes span topics such as horror, politics, human nature, the end of days, war and even sci-fi. Structurally, the songs follow unconventional paths, shifting tempos and amalgamating the different sonic influences along the way. The music depicts an ominous and vile atmosphere, using both harmonic and dissonant progressions with the blast beats, as well as key changes and even some more traditional melodies. Throughout the 9 songs, Azaab delivers something for all death metal fans.
