2023 Label Sampler by Transcending Obscurity Records

You gotta love Bandcamp … sometimes you see an album over there and you know that this one is waiting for you … just like the 2023 sampler from Transcending Obscurity Records a label from India … a label that specialized in the heaviest that metal can offer … bands from many different countries and from at least three continents … wow!

An underground record label that’s founded and based in India against all odds, Transcending Obscurity doubles as practically an animal shelter feeding around 30 stray cats and dogs overall.

I listened to this monster several times now and I never got bored. There’s a lot of good stuff to listen too and of course it will be needed to check out several of the bands in detail.
Right now it’s too early to say which of the songs are the best ones … the first 2/3 of the sampler consists of killers only … to the end I found some of the stuff being not really my kind of music but even these tracks are still worth listening too.

The track list is mighty impressive with 29 songs in total 🙂
