"A mix of death and black metal with a melodic groove and atmospheric landscapes. Gukurahundi brings an array of styles and genres into their music while maintaining their African roots. From bludgering blast beats to down tempo piano bridges the band brings a fresh new sound to blackened death metal. For fans of Naglfar, Behemoth, Dark Fortress, and Severe Torture"

The EP is surprisingly good, but there's not much information about the band. AFAIK it started in 2008 as an international (American / South African) duo under the name "The Daemon Project". The current name, according to wikipedia, literally means "the early rain which washes away the chaff before the spring rains", and refers to the infamous series of massacre in Zimbabwe during the mid-80s.
