The mighty Iron Maiden is the focus of this episode. Animesh and Peter are joined by The biggest Iron Maiden fan in India, Nolan Lewis (Kryptos) in a debate about the seminal band, specifically their 5th and 7th albums, Powerslave and Seventh Son of the Seventh Son.

Introducing “Versus”, where one album is pitted against the other. The basis of comparison isn’t just restricted to subjectiveness, the albums should have similarity i.e. same number of tracks, a common theme, artist etc.

In the present age of streaming, singles have taken precedence over albums. On the latest episode of Horns Up, we discuss if there is a perfect album in our new format All A’s Album. The first album under the scanner is Pantera Cowboys from Hell.

Cowboys from Hell was one of the first metal albums I heard when I got into metal close to 20 years ago. You can hear about the impact it had on me in the episode. Music journalist Anurag Tagat joins us as a guest. Click play below and find out if Cowboys from Hell is a All A’s Album.

Horns Up Podcast: Episode 7

leave a comment »

Last week, I attended 3 shows in 4 days (Plini, Devin Townsend Acoustic and Control Alt Delete), don’t remember the last time I did that. Also managed to record 2 new episodes of the podcast, one of which is now online.

In the new episode of Horns up, our guest compared to our previous ones
is on the opposite end of the sound spectrum. We caught up with Australian guitarist Plini just before his gig in Bombay to chat with him about his journey, devoting time to the business side of things, new music, and, life.

Animesh and I discuss Devin Townsend and the experience of an intimate, acoustic gig.
