We are extremely stoked to offer the exclusive track debut of “Chutkeli” by Nepalese grindcore unit Chepang as the band prepares to drop a new EP, Lathi Charge, on August 1 via Nerve Altar Records in the US and Holy Goat Records (Germany).
For those just tuning in, Chepang offer an absolutely bone-crushing take on modern grindcore that sees clever emulsions of several niche subgenres creep into the mix including goregrind, crust, noise rock, powerviolence, and more. The overall output is an exciting and pointedly profound take on the genre that should be turning a lot of heads in the weeks and months to come. Given the pure un-fuck-withable sonic devastation we have before us, it should come as no surprise that the band is working with some of the best company in the underground extreme- Teaming with Nerve Alter (who have been on a roll with stellar release after stellar release, see Triac/Sacridose, Disrotted, Sea Of Shit etc) and recording team that will be familiar to many. Lathi Charge was brought to life with engineer Kevin Bernstein (Full Of Hell, Triac, Skeletonwitch) at his Developing Nations Studio before being mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boadright (Dead In The Dirt, Nails, All Pigs Must Die, Baptists).
For those in the Philadelphia area, BlowTheScene.com is also helping to organize a supreme art & grindcore showcase this Saturday at The Shred Shed with our friends at The Dark Arts, Anthropic Records, and Riff Lifter Touring in Philadelphia where Chepang will be joinded by Plebian Grandstand, Pyrrhon, Cremains, Hoboknife, and Drones For Queens.
