Gutslit are the spearhead of a vibrant Indian death metal scene that’s finally getting recognition from the wider metal world. The Mumbai-based band may have formed to emulate their favourite brutal death and grindcore bands, but those influences have become peers as Gutslit shares more concert halls and festival stages with them.

I spoke with bassist Gurdip Singh Narang and vocalist Aditya Barve about how metal crosses language barriers, and why evolution is important for the band. We also discussed why it took almost half a decade for the band to release their third album Carnal, and how guitarist Prateek Rajagopal's role as producer/engineer has led to a career in Hollywood.

My thanks again to Gurdip and Aditya for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
