Some people wonder if there's any Indian (or other South Asian) black metal with lyrical references to the cult of Kali. Well, read the lyrics for the track#3 on this album - I guess that's what they're looking for. Otherwise, it's just typical death/black metal (more death than black), good but nothing outstanding. Vetis, the leader of the band, iis originally from Bangladesh but now resides in Canada with the rest of the band. However, all Weapon's early stuff was recorded in Dakka (Bangladesh). They also have forced two other metal bands called weapon to change their names due to copyright issues, so I don't think they'd be OK with their music being posted here. The whole album is available for listening on youtube, though.
