Exclusive Interview with Aparthiva Raktadhara + Full Album Stream.

 


Interview by Trevor Proctor in conversation with nāḥāš .

Aparthiva Raktadhara first came to our attention in 2018 with the exceptional Agyat Ishvar EP which was released on 7" vinyl and digital formats by Iron Bonehead Productions, with a cassette edition released by Darkness Attack Records in July the following year. 
This was Aparthiva Raktadhara's debut release which was so impressive it was placed at number four in my Top 25 EP listing for that year.
The band's debut album, 'Adyapeeth Maranasamhita' (আদ্যাপীঠ মরণসংহিতা) has just been released by Iron Bonehead Productions and nāḥāš and I had many conversations about an interview for quite a long time so it's an honour for us both to finally reveal this exclusive interview with a band at the heart of the Kalikshetra underground. 
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank nāḥāš for giving me this opportunity and also for all his help with this over the past few months.

With Ally's list performing so well last year it was obvious I should ask him to compile another Top 10 for 2021. Whilst you may not recognise his name I can think of no one who supports the underground more through music purchases and gig attendance that is second to none.

With three previous posts from PK for The Lair of Filth (an interview with myself in 2015 + two guest Top 10 listings) remaining some of the site's most successful articles I was never in any doubt that I'd ask PK to submit another Top 10 for 2021.

Trevor Proctor's Top 25 Singles, EPs, Splits and Demos of 2021.

 


Thankfully the underground continues to thrive during these strange times, in 2021 gigs were few and far between but at least things seem to slowly be getting back to a small degree of normality and bands are continuing to release music of the highest standard.

Trevor Proctor's Top 25 Albums of 2021.




Year end lists aren't for everyone, as I've mentioned previously some love them and others hate them but whether you like them or not there's no doubt they are a useful way of hearing new music and maybe catching up on releases you've missed during the year.

Iron Bonehead Productions is proud to present Malgöth's highly anticipated debut album, Glory Through Savagery, on CD and vinyl LP formats - which has just been released.
Although Malgöth burst from the void in late 2020 with their debut EP, Primordial Dawn, on Bandcamp, it wasn't until Iron Bonehead's physical release of it in June 2021 when the name began to take hold and strike fear and confusion in those who heard the Canadian trio's righteous abomination of war metal aesthetics.
