Shades Of Retribution
Formed in January,2010, Shades Of Retribution has an old school base , deriving influences from the Assamese culture and the other regions of North-East India. This being said the lyrics are in Assamese which is the official language of the state of Assam, a North- Eastern state of India and are in context to the never ending quest for survival in this region. The sound draws influences from Thrash/Death. Idealogies forms the concept of “ One Tribe and One Sound”,which the band firmly believes.
