Rolling Stone Metal Awards 2012

leave a comment »

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

First video interview – Keshav Dhar (Skyharbor)

with one comment

Last week, Delhi based producer Keshav Dhar was in Mumbai to record the Mumbai metal act Providence‘s EP. A guitar clinic was also held at B69, which I attended. The turnout was decent considering it was a weekday and it was not marketed a lot.

During the clinic, Keshav played 2 Skyharbor tracks, “Aphasia” and “Trayus”. He broke down each song and also explained his songwriting technique. The clinic was great learning experience for all those present.

Sunnieth (Bhayanak Maut, Amidst the Chaos) was among the audience and that resulted in an impromptu performance of “Aphasia” at the end of the clinic. The first “live performance” of Skyharbor.

I managed to do a short interview with Keshav. Check it out here.

* Apologies for the video quality.
