Guitarist Samudragupta commented, "Releasing this album feels like a moment of catharsis and also feels like letting go of a lot of things because this album contains so much of our deeper emotions. It also makes us wonder whether as individuals, we would be able to remain the same as we are letting go of ourselves through these intense lyrical and musical expressions."

Rectified Spirit was formed in August 2005 by guitarist Samudragupta Dutta and bassist Himangshu Borah when they discovered a common love for Metal. The band came about when Samudragupta saw the words ‘Rectified Spirit’ on a bottle at a hospital where he had taken his mother for treatment. The band started performing at various local shows but after a few years of being active in the circuit the band disbanded around 2009. Samudragupta Dutta and Himangshu Borah reformed the band again in the year 2011 with guitarist and long term friend of both, Imtiyaz Alam. With newly associated vocalist Rainjong Lepcha and drummer Nishant Hagjer the band started performing again in the active Metal circuit of their hometown. The band has spent the better part of the last 2 years writing and recording their self titled debut album. The album represents the almost seven year journey of the band overcoming all the obstacles and making their musical dream of an album a reality.
The band takes influences from all the different genres of Heavy Metal and is in the perennial cycle of evolving their individual style with an absolutely liberal approach and without any genre restrictions. The cite the metal legends like Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden etc as their musical influences as well as more modern artists like Meshuggah, Born Of Osiris and Periphery.
