Viagra Haze, a Bangalore based-Imphal bred metal band has came up with their debut EP. Their EP titled "Aggression Aspired" was released online on their reverbnation page (reverbnation.com/viagrahaze).
The release generated a near viral phenomenon when the band came up with a new song each day starting from the just concluded Diwali festival. The EP has 5 tracks, including a Manipuri folk inspired piece.
1. The Untouchable
2. Political Orgasm
3. Speechless Mosaic form the Womb
4. Mysterious Emotion
5. 18th Century: The Rise
Working on their debut EP, the band drew their inspiration from the never ending atrocities running in the society and a government who are making things harder for the common masses. The band says they want to live their lives with anger, an aggression to resist the ills they face under the "system", hence the name "Aggression Aspired". Genre wise, the record is a staple of groovy thrash metal featuring some complex riffs and melodic solos. The EP is currently streaming on their reverbnation page and is available for free download.
