The excitement is slowly building up amongst metalheads across India, with just over 2 weeks to go for Mumbai’s only metal festival, BIG69. The headliners for the 2 day festival are legends Carcass, progressive metal act Sikth as well as Italian metallers Fleshgod Apocalypse and UK rap metallers Hacktivist. The festival taking place at the Richardson & Cruddas industrial compound in Byculla on the 17th and 18th of January, 2015 will also feature some of the biggest Indian bands such as Demonic Resurrection, Undying Inc, Zygnema, Kryptos and others.
One of the bands performing at the festival are Escher’s Knot from Bangalore. The band got together in July 2009 and since then they have opened for bands like Lamb of God, Lacuna Coil and Hammerfall. They were recently listed as one of the 20 best metal bands in the indian indie scene by Pepsi MTV Indies.
I spoke to their vocalist Abijith Rao about their upcoming album, the Septic Progression gigs and also playing at the BIG69 festival. Read the interview on Pepsi MTV Indies.
