Unscene – Bear in Mumbai

leave a comment »

Belgian metal band Bear kicked off their Indian tour a couple days ago in Mumbai with a smashing set. The band performed tracks from their latest album /// and also Noumenon. Known for their energetic live performances, the band put on a show that will be etched in the memories of the audience present for the near future. Guitarist James Falck got into the mosh pit towards the end of their set.


Escher’s knot, the support act for the tour played in Mumbai after 3 years. The band played a 4-piece and their set featured tracks from their EP, Tesselations and single The Grand Design. It was great to see the band live after a while and they really got the crowd going, starting a few moshpits. They ended their set with a cover of Meshuggah Humiliative.


False Flag started the night off with their political hardcore sound. Their set comprised of songs from their recently released self-titled EP and soon to be released split EP. I felt the young band need some work on their stage presence which could be ironed out once they play more gigs.

Bear performs in Bangalore today, in Delhi on 12th April and their tour ends in Ahmedabad on 14th April (All details in poster below). Metalheads in the respective cities don’t miss the gig, lest you regret it later.

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.

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.
