Transcending Obscurity PR and Distribution has been a growing force in the metal scene from India, and now they present a brand new free digital sampler composed of sixty-five different bands. Download the sampler at THIS LOCATION.

Owner and primary operator, Kunal Choksi, had this to say:

“I’ve been working really hard setting up things this side of the world. I didn’t realize there were 65 bands in all depending on Transcending Obscurity, now and in the future. This compilation is for them all.

The compilation is for free download. I’d urge all of you guys to download as much as possible too. It’s just for the sake of good, promising, deserving music. I’ve been singlehandedly running the label activities and quit my family business and engineering career to focus on this full time. Cheers!
