DEMONSTEALER’S NEW EP ‘AND THIS TOO SHALL PASS’ TO RELEASE ON 11 DEC 2020; REVEALS SAMPLER, ARTWORK AND TRACKLIST

Mumbai-based death metal multi-instrumentalist, Sahil Makhija aka   Demonstealer , is all set to release his next solo EP titled   ‘And This Too Shall Pass’   on the   11th December, 2020 . The 4-song EP is being self-released with the help of   a crowd-funding campaign   that Makhija personally set up in July earlier this year. Three years after   The Last Reptilian Warrior , it was the COVID-19 pandemic and the resultant lockdown in the country that provided Makhija with a new perspective and the inspiration to write new music.   And This Too Shall Pass   sees Makhija return to his absolute roots. He adds,   “I guess this is me at my most vulnerable. It’s just me, no incredible musicians to back me up, just me putting my expression and feelings and thoughts into songs for the world to listen to”. 

An extreme music old-timer Makhija has long been a crucial part of the Indian metal scene; be it founding the country’s biggest extreme metal band ( Demonic Resurrection ), or starting up an independent record label (with releases by  Behemoth Dimmu Borgir ) or setting up a premium recording studio dedicated to extreme metal - Makhija has had an enormous role in shaping the country’s heavy music landscape. After a successful third album, which saw collaborations with Kévin Paradis ( Benighted Svart Crown ), Romain Goulon ( Necrophagist ), Kerim Lechner ( Septic Flesh Decapitated ) and David Diepold ( Obscura ) amongst others, Makhija has resurfaced with a brand new  Demonstealer   release.

The release was mixed and mastered at the esteemed  Hertz Studio  ( Behemoth ,   Decapitated Vader ), a first for Makhija who is otherwise known to mix all the  Demonstealer  releases. The glorious artwork for the EP was provided by Indonesian artist  Adi Dechristianize  ( Embalmer ,   Disgorge ). All music on  And This Too Shall Pass has been written, played and recorded by Makhija — making it truly a solo effort — a feat he hasn’t performed since his debut album released in 2008.
