We’re thrilled to put out our new free-for-download label sampler that features exactly 50 bands from all over. We’ve come a long way doing this from a small bedroom in Mumbai, India when the idea of doing this for a living seemed all too fanciful. After tons of rejections from both bands and potential customers, we’re finally getting around to convince some of them that despite our geographical disadvantage, we can still do things in a significant manner. Circa 2019, we have two exclusive stores for US and Europe, in addition to ground distribution in two continents, while of course running our popular Bandcamp page and official store on our website. It’s not been easy but we’re not stopping any time soon. Please check out our new label sampler AT THIS LINK to get a glimpse into what’s coming from our side this year.

We’ve also put out new merch to commemorate the same, staying true to our roots while continually transcending obscurity.  

Transcending Obscurity (India) – ‘2019 Label Sampler’ (January 17th, 2018)

Genre – Death Metal, Crust, Grindcore, Black Metal, Noise, Thrash Metal, Doom Metal, Sludge
Release Date – January 17rd, 2018
Record Label – Transcending Obscurity Records

This is our most ambitious sampler yet. It includes many new signings that we’ve worked hard on and which we hope you will enjoy. These are but songs off some very good albums to serve as a microcosm for what’s to come. It’s going to be our biggest year without a shadow of doubt. Like before, it starts off with the focus on death metal and grind, then to some very selected black metal and lastly, slowing things down in style with some expansive doom metal from all over. Each band brings its own sound to the sampler, further enhancing the overall appeal of what we’re striving to achieve with the label, working with variety and depth culled from the underground and taking it higher. The keyword here is ’emerge’ and if any of these acts get better noticed after we’re done with it, our purpose will have been achieved. 

This is a pay-what-you-want compilation and any amount that is donated will be used towards the making of the upcoming hoodies and merch which has the fantastic front and back artwork exclusively created by the Italian designer View From The Coffin. We will also be looking forward to upgrading our packaging and offering more goodies with these artworks in the new year.
