The World Beyond
Virgo Music, 1998
BRAHMA is hard rock/heavy metal band and this 7 song release; they are not
yet reach the title “gods”. The album starts with thrash-like song “Destroy
the Destroyer”. Great song I must say. And the album ends with death/thrash
song which reminds me of Malaysian CROMOK, “You Must Die”, the only track
with growling vocals. The rest are hard rock/heavy metal songs. Weird mix of
styles in one album, huh? They claimed their self as “gods of metal”. Gods?
Wow, is Indian metal really bad? They need to be heavier and show more of
their guitar skills. If you are looking for glam 80’s rock/heavy metal (if
minus the thrash songs) you can try “The World Beyond”. But I suggest you
better stick to your old LP. This is a domestic release which I assume
unavailable for those living outside India, not even through mailorder
(well, like most Indian releases I have so far). So why trouble yourself
having this one?
