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.

By now, Black Cilice require no introduction. Arguably THE most pivotal raw black metal entity of the last decade, this Portuguese enigma has come to both define and defy that idiom.

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.

As I've said a number of times one of the benefits of being involved with The Lair of Filth is creating ties and friendships with labels, bands and promoters.

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.

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.
