The EP was recorded with bass by Ashwin Shriyan and vocals by Vidit Shah at The Scale Studios. Additional vocal tracking and production were handled by Shikhar Manchanda (The Beast India Company), who also mixed the EP. Finally, the mastering touch was added by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios.
More than just an EP, "Iconic" is a love letter to Mumbai. The tracks reflect the city’s vibrant spirit and the resilience of its people. From the chaotic streets to the serene temples, Zygnema captures it all, transforming Mumbai’s essence into a metal masterpiece.
"Iconic" hits all the right notes for me. Zygnema has outdone themselves, creating a fusion that feels both fresh and timeless. The blend of traditional Indian elements with heavy metal is not just a gimmick—it’s a revelation. Each track stands strong on its own, yet together they form a cohesive narrative that’s as compelling as it is brutal.
Zygnema has proven that they’re not just a band; they’re pioneers, pushing the boundaries of what metal can be. So, fire up your speakers, crank the volume, and let "Iconic" transport you to the heart of Mumbai, where tradition meets metal in a cataclysmic dance of sound. Trust me, this is one parade you don’t want to miss. \m/
