Iron Bonehead Productions is proud to present Tetragrammacide's highly anticipated second album, Typho-Tantric Aphorisms From The Arachneophidian Qur'an, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
Hailing from the ever-thriving and always-interesting Indian metal underground, Tetragrammacide have proven to transcend even such already-superlative boundaries. 
For over a decade now, the hydra-headed entity has created one of the most genuinely threatening and overwhelmingly violent sounds of modern times, and then they flip the script by becoming clearer and more focused and somehow even more feral. 
Allied with Iron Bonehead since 2015, Tetragrammacide's Typhonian Wormholes: Indecipherable Anti-Structural Formulæ mini-album was a modern classic of blown-out barbarism and in-the-red frequencies, betraying the fact that an accomplished black/death band were simply waiting for an opportune time to reveal a clearer portrait of their sonic holocaust. 
That then arrived with 2017's Primal Incinerators of Moral Matrix debut album: an impossibly accomplished display of black/death intensity and density, sharpened to a such a degree that their sensory overload became all the more expansive.

Back to a power-duo - or "cosmic power-zones," in the band's own words, "entwined discreetly by unregistered topographical phenomena and invisible distortion of the subtle ontological matrices by a warping of occult space-time!" - Tetragrammacide unveil their sophomore revelation, inarguably their most devastating work from top to bottom: Typho-Tantric Aphorisms From The Arachneophidian Qur'an. 

Here, the Indian sonic temple expand the extremes latent to their aesthetic, and draw them closer and most distant simultaneously, playing into the head-spinning and ouroboros-eating vortex of the album's themes itself. While the preceding full-length had its heart fixated on "Srishti Drishti Vada" - doctrine of perception through the creation - this new opus has sprouted itself under the Upanishadic tenets of "Drishti Srishti Vada": doctrine of the creation through perception and "Ajata Vada" - the radical doctrine of non-creation. 

State the band, "This way, the phenomena is completely negated, eliminated and rightfully renunciated under all possible situations of any given philosophical, esoteric and religious narratives!"

Between sacred and profane! 
Between words and silence! 
Between purna and shunya! 
Between life and death!
Beyond real and illusory! 
Beyond the being and the non-being!

Totaling 11 songs across 45 minutes and containing perhaps the longest (or at least densest) song titles in metal history, Typho-Tantric Aphorisms From The Arachneophidian Qur'an reaps a whirlwind of pistons-pumping martial death metal made flesh through geysers of kaleidoscopic blood. Riffs bend, bruise, and batter, but not necessarily in that order; they're always moving, however, and that movement is mesmerizing in its linear-yet-divergent flow. 
Vocals storm from above and below, world-eating to the extreme. Drums are literally insane, playing with psychotic precision and also fuck-everything barbarity. The production is as powerful and "pro" as any big-league death metal record past or present, hereby underling the fact that Tetragrammacide could challenge (and summarily decimate) any throne-holder or -pretender. 
This is not strictly an "underground" band nor record, although the roots and authenticity are no doubt there. Casting a wider, more-accurate net, Typho-Tantric Aphorisms From The Arachneophidian Qur'an should be viewed alongside such cyclonic classics as Krisiun's Conquerors of Armageddon, Angelcorpse's Exterminate, and Centvrian's Liber ZarZax

"War metal" ghettoization simply does not apply to Tetragrammacide, and hasn't for years now.

These transmissions are true. 
These transmissions are false. 
These transmissions are both true and false. 
These transmissions are both not true and not false.
