Two teasers and months of speculation later, “Section 66 Part 5” has been released as the first single off Kolkata based Progressive Metalcore/ Djent 5-piece- What Escapes Me. The band, featuring Guitarists Sayan Ghosh and Arindam Sen, Vocalist Shourav Dey, along with Pradyumna Laskar on Bass and Sambit Chatterjee on Drums, plans to release its debut EP later this year. The the track also track features Prateek Shrivastava who plays the Sarod on it.
Jarring, dissonant riffs, up-tempo skin-slamming, and rumbling Bass-work topped off with an amazing balance between mid-range growls and soothing clean vocals .“Section 66..” is unlike any other single released by a band in recent times- Modern Metal, with dollops of Hardcore, featuring strains of Indian Classical music elements in the form of a Sarod- that’s a new. Fast-paced, groovy, and an uber-tight composition that stays true to its genre- all signs of a band of musicians who know their instruments really well. Already having proven that they are much above your garden-variety Metalcore outfit, a sure-fire place in many of the year-end Best Of lists is what awaits this band if they keep on producing quality tracks in the league of “Section 66...”.

Arkadeep Deb, as of now is a 20 year old engineering student from Kolkata. When he’s not harmlessly trolling around or watching Two and a Half Men re-runs, he dabbles in all-things-Metal, Photography, Songwriting, Reviews, you name it. While building up his chops in guitar/ vocals as we speak, he’s doing his utmost to represent the genre he loves, protesting social-stereotyping and pigeon-holing of its followers and lending a patient ear to the beloved underground. His first tryst with Metal was 5 years ago, when one fateful day he popped a bootleg SLIPKNOT: SUBLIMINAL VERSES and LAMB OF GOD: ASHES OF THE WAKE split-record in the cd-tray. There has been no looking back ever-since.
