NEWS: Third Sovereign
Perversion Swallowing Sanity
release date: January 15th, 2016
label: Transcending Obscurity India
Aficionados of no-nonsense, upfront death metal old school brutality and heaviness might be surprised by India's response to Cannibal Corpse: Third Sovereign. This band is a bad bunch of politicians, a terrible group of scam artists: they don’t fool anyone: it’s death metal that they came for and it’s death metal that will be on the agenda. Just death metal. The agenda has one point and it looks like this:
Things to do today:
The band apparently started back in 2003, so they have been around a minute. Best thing of all, you can listen to the complete album at Bandcamp and get your groove on.
It was in the winter of 2003 that 3 individuals from Aizawl decided to pursue and transcend their musical interests and explore territories which no one had dared to before,in the region. Nothing could change their frame of mind and not owing and bowing down to the stereotypicals,they shifted base to Delhi in order to expand their horizons. Thus,IIIrd Sovereign saw the light of the day and since then, there has been no looking back and the band has gone through various phases and have ever evolved,facing numerous obstacles in their evolution with admirable determination. The band remains true to its single-minded resolve, which is making pure and honest music. IIIrd Sovereign perceives it's lyrical interpretation through mortality, nuclear warfare, politics and sins committed which reflects back on our lives and for which the curse of life will always be upon us. Until' Mortality!!
Third Sovereign are a legendary death metal band in the country of India. Known for their intense and rabid live shows, they have taken almost a decade to come up with a follow up album to the sold out classic that's 'Destined to Suffer'. Third Sovereign whip up a storm with their thrash-tinged proto-death metal that hearkens back to the era of bands like Sepultura, Monstrosity, Cannibal Corpse and Vader. The members are die-hard old school metalheads and their passion for the genre hasn't diminished despite having relocated to a remote region in the North-Eastern section of the country, in Aizwal, Mizoram. Not many bands from the country are able to play death metal that's so pure in intent and Third Sovereign clearly separate the men from the boys. This is classic-sounding thrashy death metal that most metalheads have weaned on in their formative years. 'Perversion Swallowing Sanity' is a throwback to an era of unanimous unity and respect for well-written and performed death metal, regardless of the trends and stylistic differences. Third Sovereign are back to reclaim their throne.
