Sabotage India, a rising force in the global Thrash Metal scene, has unleashed their new musical onslaught with their latest album, Pishach — a fast paced journey through the realms of Thrash. The band’s sophomore effort proves to be a relentless and uncompromising testament to their mastery of the genre, solidifying their position as a force to be reckoned with.

From the opening notes of the title track, “Pishach,” Sabotage India grabs the listener by the throat and doesn’t let go. The relentless guitar riffs, thunderous drumming, and aggressive vocals set the tone for an album that thrives on chaos and precision in equal measure. The production quality is stellar, capturing the raw energy of their performance while maintaining a polished sound that allows each instrument to shine.

Old School Style

The album’s lyrical themes delve into the darker aspects of human existence, drawing inspiration from mythology and the supernatural. They even manage to work in a song about necrophilia. Tracks like “Love Undead” and “Eye for an Eye” showcase the band’s ability to weave intricate narratives within the brutal sonic landscape they’ve crafted. The lyrics are both thought-provoking and visceral, adding depth to the overall experience of Pishach.

Guitar Work And Vocals

One of the standout features of Sabotage India’s sound is their guitar work. The tandem of razor-sharp riffs and blistering solos, as heard in “Valley of Death,” exemplifies the technical prowess of the band. The guitarists display a keen sense of dynamics, seamlessly transitioning between breakneck speed and slower, more melodic passages. This dynamic range keeps the listener engaged throughout the album, preventing any sense of monotony.

The rhythm section, comprising a relentless bass and thunderous drums, forms the backbone of Sabotage India’s assault. “Pisach” and “Sabotage” showcase the precision and tightness of the band, with the rhythm section laying a solid foundation for the chaotic landscape painted by the guitars and vocals. The drummer’s relentless double bass pedal work is a highlight, adding an extra layer of intensity to the already aggressive compositions.

Vocalist Anand Mulgund delivers a performance that perfectly complements the ferocity of the music. His guttural sound cuts through the dense instrumentation, adding an extra layer of brutality to their music. The vocal delivery is both commanding and expressive, capturing the emotional depth of the lyrical themes explored in Pishach.

The album’s pacing is another aspect that deserves recognition. Sabotage India effectively balances frenetic, high-energy tracks with even more fast and blistering tracks. These guys are the epitome of Thrash Metal.

Roots, Bloody Roots

Sabotage India pays homage to the roots of Thrash Metal while injecting their own unique flair into the genre. Fans of classic Thrash acts such as Slayer and Kreator, and new stuff like Municipal Waste, will find familiar elements to appreciate, but Pishach is far from a mere imitation. The band successfully incorporates elements from various subgenres, creating a sound that is both nostalgic and fresh.


In conclusion, Sabotage India’s Pishach is a triumph for the band and a testament to the enduring power of Thrash Metal. With its relentless energy, technical prowess, and thought-provoking lyricism, the album stands as a formidable addition to the band’s discography. Sabotage India has firmly established themselves as a force in the global Thrash Metal scene. Pishach is a must-listen for any fan of the genre.

    Jon is a reviewer at Metal Express Radio and is currently living in Wisconsin, USA. The first thing that made Jon fall in love with Metal goes all the way back to the glory days of MTV actually playing music. Alice in Chains, "Man in the Box" came on and the channel was automatically banned by family. It sparked a curiosity for the music instead of turning him away from it. Things only progressed from there. Suicidal Tendencies, Slayer, Metallica, Megadeth, all the heavier stuff from the late '80s and early '90s were always in rotation. Aside from loving all things Metal, Jon also runs a skateshop in his hometown and is trying to get the scene stronger than ever.
