Spread the metal:

Unholy Maunder, a popular Indian metal portal today announced the launch of its new record label, ‘Infestdead Records’ with a vision to contribute something for the local metal scene. The first release on the label will be Sons of Malice (2012) by Savage, a NWOBHM metal band hailing from UK whose songs have been covered by the metal goliaths Metallica, in the past. Infestdead Records’ first release will be available throughout India only, however the label alleged to have worldwide distributions. The 58 minutes album is Savage’s sixth Studio album shaped after a long hiatus of 11 years. Revealing the news, the label AR also said to believe that the album which is to be available by mid-September will give the Indian listeners a unique taste of blues-driven British heavy metal. On the other hand band founders Chris Bradley & Andy Dawson are very excited about the contract and hope to play in India in near future.

Formed way back in 1976, Savage was invited to participate in the seminal compilation album: ‘scene of the crime’, recording two of their compositions. One of these tracks – ‘Let it loose’ was later covered by Metallica after Lars Ulrich bought the album. Savage released their first album ‘Loose N Lethal’ on Ebony Records in 1983 which was pronounced the best-selling metal import album in America.

Their second album ‘Hyperactive’ received a KKKKK rating from the heavy metal bible Kerrang. The other albums – Holy Wars, Babylon and Xtreme Machine also opened with rave reviews and were hailed by fans at the live gigs at London. Savage also shared the stage with Metallica and Venom at gigs in Europe. They have played at various festivals including Heavy Oder Was and Wacken.
