Gumraah – Mannfarid


The quintet, formed in 2012, that goes by the name of Mannfarid – apparently derived from a similar sounding Urdu word that means “unique” – live up to their name on the heavy metal produced/promoted sound here; an experiment with the band’s dual guitar sounds, courtesy Kirit Mandavgane and Onkar Tarkase, which has produced a darker, deeper, and sludgier sound than most indie content of similar genres committed to record. The multiple metal subgenres of “Gumraah” lay the sonic foundations for doom, stoner, and sludge metal, all in the space of just over five minutes. “Gumraah” has the potential of being an influential piece of work in Hindi heavy me[n]talness.
