Official press release:
Performing a blend of thrash, groove and death metal influences, Mumbai, India natives SystemHouse33 have been a mainstay of the Indian heavy metal scene for the past 12 years. SystemHouse33 will release their fifth album Regression in early 2016. You can pre-order the album here and listen to an album promo below.
Regression was recorded using guitars from the Washburn Dime series and Dean Guitars, Ibanez basses and Mapex drums.
SystemHouse33 founding member and vocalist Samron Jude elaborates on the concept behind the new album:
“Regression is the paradox of progress; it is the disintegrating world we live in. We are doing more, but feeling worse. Covering the regressive nature of this progressing world, the tracks on the new SystemHouse33 album throw light on the omnipresent, yet rarely acknowledged two-sides of a developing world and how primitive a human being is in actuality. It’s not just about the rat race, it’s what makes people tread down that wide path of destruction masked in the tantalizing hype of being the only truth along with the alarming acceptance of a superficial life which has no place for morality. With this album, SystemHouse33 wants people to realize this evil around them and stand up for what is the truth.”
In celebration of the upcoming album release, SystemHouse33 will join American death metal group Six Feet Under on the European Xmas In Hell Tour, set to take place in Germany and Austria. The tour kicks off in Flensburg, Germany and closes on December 12th back in Glauchau, Germany. Also joining the tour are Short Fuse and Soulline.
This tour marks the band’s first ever foreign tour, and also creates history as SystemHouse33 is the first Indian metal band to tour with a legendary heavy metal headliner. Samron Jude says:
“We are very excited that SystemHouse33 will be taking Indian metal to new places and what better way than to open for Chris Barnes and Six Feet Under, one of the biggest death metal acts around.”
Zygnema’s Mayank Sharma will be on drum duties for SystemHouse33 on this tour. See below for a breakdown of tour dates.
