Dead Exaltation – Progressive Death Metal Band From Pune Release Their Debut Single

Dead Exaltation started out as a 3 piece Progessive Rock/Thrash band between Aditya, Mradul and a third person. The band was known as SULCUS during those days. Aditya and Mradul met through social media and started jamming out one of Mradul’s tune. Later they came up with 3 to 4 compositions but due to some issues, the band go on much longer.

Meanwhile Sourjya and Anish who were college friends and now are work colleagues too, used to jam together and compose stuff. Fallacy was composed during that time too. They later met Aditya through a common friend and Aditya in turn introduced Mradul to them and thus began the journey to Dead Exaltation!

Mradul’s compositions were highly influenced by Progressive stuff, whereas Sourjya’s by Death Metal. That is the reason for the band being known as a Progressive Death Metal Band. Over a period of time many vocalists were tried out but none of them were able to devote ample amount of time. Aditya met Satyajit and asked him to jam with the band one day. The lyrics were written, vocal structure was laid and FINALLY the band had a full line up!

Dead exaltation’s lyrics are short stories revolving around themes of Gore, Torture and Brutal Killings by Psychopaths and by those who take advantage of their position. The bands name was suggested by Satyajit as most of the lyrics were pretty much based on false expectation of happiness and freedom. Presently, the band is working on more concept based lyrics and compositions with well defined bass lines, technical guitar parts and bringing in influences from various genres of metal and beyond metal.
