Mumbai-based band, Reptilian Death have long existed in the shadows of the Indian metal scene as the side project of Demonic Resurrection frontman, Demonstealer. The band spent their first 12 years making sporadic live appearances and changing line-ups fairly often. During that time, Reptilian Death had an almost humorous disposition, writing little spoof metal epics like ‘5 Easy Ways To Murder Someone’ and ‘Nursery Rhymes For Satan’s Children’ while balancing a handful of serious tracks which eventually found themselves on their 2004 debut, Total Annihilation. In 2006, the band’s direction took a turn for the serious with the release of their EP, “Intestinal Feast,” on the Defaced And Split album, which also featured Exhumation, Warface and Narsil.
Shortly after the release, the band returned to the shadows until resurfacing in early 2013. The band exploded on the scene completely metamorphosed into brand new beast. Fronted by Vinay Venkatesh (Bhaynak Maut), dressed in priestly robes with his face painted half black and half white and backed by a band of masked members Reptilian Death has moved out of the shadows and into the forefront of the global metal community. The world will now see “The Dawn Of Consummation And Emergence” descend on October 10th 2013 via Old School Metal Records. Check out what Miss Bomb thinks of the album, below.
