The Delhi based metal quartet Undying Inc. are back with a new single “I R O N C L A D” after a short period of turmoil.The band recruited a new drummer Nishant Hagjer and for a short period parted ways with vocalist Shashank Bhatnagar. The band has confirmed that this single will be a part of an EP having the same title to be released tentatively in December 2013.
The track, “I R O N C L A D” kicks off with an 8-bit intro which is followed by a groove laden riff. It is evident that Undying Inc. have gravitated towards a sound which is quite different compared to their debut album “Aggressive World Dynasty”. However, this change is caused not because of a drastic change in the music they play, but because of a change in production values. “I R O N C L A D” has Keshav Dhar (Skyharbor) at the helm as producer and as a result has a cleaner and more modern tone. The band however has in no way let go of the “brutal assault to the senses” brand of metal they became renowned for.They have added a lot of groove to their style which in fact made me think of how it sounds like something off of a “The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza” record.
“I R O N C L A D” is a solid track and it has definitely made us curious about the EP. Here’s hoping that that it will be as relentless an assault as the single.
