Progressive Death Metal band DARK HELM is all gearing up for their release and they have now announced their forthcoming record titled- Hymnus De Antitheist. Proximity Productions is delighted to announce the signing of this band for PR in support of this album.
The band’s bassist, Shubrayu comments, “We’re really glad to have tied up with Proximity Productions for this album. We really want this album to reach out where it should and we were on the lookout for a PR company which is equally driven to the cause. We’ve known Harsha for a few years now and are really impressed with his contribution to the Metal scene in India. With a driven and reliable PR company on our side, we’re really optimistic about releasing the album.“
Speaking about the album, Mohanish, the band’s guitarist adds, “This album is the sum total of all my hatred towards the state of humanity today. Let me clarify though; Over the past few years I have noticed my stance harden, as a rational thinker. My belief that “divinity is poison” has grown from a mere commentary on the human condition to a desperate need for a global change (if we are to survive the coming of age of the human race and become an advanced civilization worthy of wielding the tools we create).“

Hyderabad based Metal band- Hostilian are now gearing up for their forthcoming release and are collaborating with Proximity Productions PR. The band’s drummer comments that the band has been working on this release for quite some time and that it is by far one of their most challenging process, “With reference to the previous EP, we think it was an exercise on figuring out how all our influences and preferred style of music could fit in with each other. At this present moment, we’ve understood what we want and are more focused than ever. This focus has manifested itself in the new EP in heavier and more powerful ways. The writing has gone beyond anything we hoped for and it seems that we have discovered a plain that is untouched in terms of originality. We were never writers who wanted to stick to the beaten path, that has an established fan base that could be marketed to easily. The point is to write truly original, gnarly and groovy music. We feel we’ve accomplished that in these new tracks”.
On their new coalition with Proximity Productions, he states, “Getting the word out on who we are and what we’ve been trying to do was always the hardest part. Now, it feels good to have partnered with Proximity Productions and to know that it’s the best possible way to get our music heard. We’re looking forward to what the future holds for both, the company and us as a band. It’s been an easy decision to place our trust in the hands of someone who understands the music”. We are really excited to be a part of their journey and to work with hard working musicians like them who are dedicated to their art and to have come up with their a second release post Monolith (Sep 2017) in such a short duration. Watch out for some exciting announcements, the album artworks and title reveal to be done in a couple of weeks.
