All metal (almost Indian) list this time around

Skyharbor – Guiding Lights

The sophomore release of the international progressive metal group is their first as a band. The album continue with the melodic elements first heard on “Aurora” from their debut album “Blinding White Noise: Illusion & Chaos”. Forrester Savell bolsters the songwriting with great production. Progressive metal fans will not be disappointed.

 

Gutslit – Skewered in the Sewer

The first album from Gutslit, death grind band from India is miles ahead of their split with Pulmonary Fibrosis and I have been listening to it a lot lately. The slam parts might put off grind purists. After a short tour of Europe earlier this year including a set at Obscene Extreme, things are looking promising for the band.

 

Pangea – This is NG, taking

Instrumental progressive metal band Pangea are one of the underrated bands from India. Their new single “This is NG, taking” has some trippy riffs. Keep an eye out for more awesome music from this band in the coming year.


 

Bhayanak Maut – Man

‘Man’ is one of the few concept albums released by an Indian metal band. Bhayanak Maut take a very different approach to the concept of serial killers.The band are a twisted lot; reading the journal that accompanies the album will send chills down your spine. Easily their best release yet.

 

Woods of Ypres – Against the Seasons

As the days get shorter and winter sets in, this is my go to album. The debut album of Canadian band Woods of Ypres is one of my favourite black metal releases. Here is my favourite track from it

Last Sunday, I attended the 3rd edition of the Rolling Stone Metal Awards. I was also at the previous two editions, here is what happened last year. The awards is a great place to the metal community in India to get together and celebrate the bands that have put out some great releases in the past year. Check out the list of this year’s winners here.

The bands that performed were Pangea, Providence, Abraxas, Eccentric Pendulum and Zygnema. All the bands put on a great show and there were quite a few moshpits as you can see below

Met a lot of the people and also got to hang out with an old friend of mine, Srivatsan who took some pretty awesome pics. Check out my thoughts on this years gig along with pics here
