Kryptos are one of India’s oldest surviving metal bands. Over the past 2 decades they have released 5 albums and toured across Europe where they have built a rabid following.

In a candid chat frontman Nolan Lewis spoke to us about how the band has evolved over the years, their latest release Afterburner, building a fan base in Europe and what it means to be Indian on the heavy metal scene.

Andy Dowling, the bassist for Australia heavy metal act Lord. I had interview Andy for the blog in 2015. The band earlier this month released their first studio album in 6 years, Fallen Idols.

On the Horns Up Podcast, we discuss with Andy – Fallen Idols, the mix-tape nature of the album and unique release strategy that resulted in it finding a place on the ARIA Australian Artist Albums Chart and Australian Independent Music Charts.

Andy recommends bands from Australia that we should listen to and also some handy tips for bands on their social media presence.
