Death metal vocalist Mallika Sundaramurthy (ex-Abnormality) has made an announcement about no longer being involved in underground death metal band Castrator. Here is the announcement, grabbed from Facebook:

***Important Announcement***

I will no longer be working with CASTRATOR. Unfortunately, things with the band have ended up in a hugely disappointing way for me. I’m not going to go into details. I prefer not to spread any drama publicly.

The vocal tracks I recorded back in January will NOT be used on the band’s future release. I’m very sorry to all the fans and followers who have been waiting for years for the full length album. I was really looking forward to sharing all the hard work we had done with you. However, this is now the reality and I will move forward.

I have decided I’m going to take the creative vision I had for CASTRATOR, my lyrics and ideas, and put it towards a new project.

Introducing EMASCULATOR. The name is based on the song title and lyrics I wrote. I am now forming a lineup for this new project and already started working on new songs. Follow these pages for updates!

Sundaramurthy is by far one of the best vocalists in death metal, easy pick for the top ten for me or even higher. That is a big loss for any band.

EP Review: Castrator – “No Victim”

“Tightly she holds the blade
With which the rapist will be raped .
Castration Of the rapist! Emasculation.”

Talk about a reply to any number of songs from Cannibal Corpse’s discography! Having discovered these ladies last year, right before their demo was released, I was ecstatic to finally hear Castrator‘s 4-track EP released in early May under the Horror Pain Gore Death Productions label. These five ladies hail from all over the map (Sweden, Colombia & Norway to name a few countries), marking this group as both ethnically diverse and fem-tastic! Shrouded in a bit of mystery, the ladies are credited as M.S. (vocals), M. Akesson (rhythm guitar), R. M. (bass), C. Perez (drums) and P. Serrano (lead and vocals). You might already be familiar with many of the ladies from their other bands, which with time, I’m sure you’ll all figure out.

It’s sort of a supergroup in the making. Castrator’s EP has brushed off the dust to reinvigorate traditional death metal, and, in fact, does so with a healthy dose of feminism. And for you males out there who shy away from the f-word – put simply, it’s about leveling the field.
