Shades of Retribution is a Death Metal band from Duliajan (Assam), formed in Jan '2010. Shades of Retribution has an old school base, deriving influences from the Assamese culture and the other regions of North-East. This being said the lyrics are in Assamese and are in context to the never ending quest for survival in this region. The sound draws influences from Thrash / Death (Cannibal Corpse, Testament, Kreator, Death, Six Feet Under) to name a few. “Idealogies forms the concept of One Tribe and One Sound”, which the band firmly believes. With the recording sessions over in Guwahati at Lucid Recess Studio, the first full-length debut album titled XONGRAM pronounced as “hongram” that means “struggle” in English. As the tittle of the album is in Assamese (which is the band’s mother tongue) so is their lyrics, that speaks of all the political insurgencies happening in and around the mother state. While songs like 'Kola Daor' and 'Bhogobanko' questions  the survival of Assamese youths in their own state, other tracks like 'Andulan' and 'Raktapat' speaks against all the terrorism activities that is slowly and steadily pushing the state into ashes. The opening track starts with a folk tune and that’s when they blow me away and this continued till the end with some amazing riffs and brilliant drumming and most importantly their originality. Currently the band is working on their second full length album titled "Odho-Poton" which will be releasing on 2013.
