Metal fest to attend in 2015

Though 2015 is a bit far still, but some great news for Norwegian Metal lovers is already here! I am talking about Karmoygeddon, to be held in Norway in 2015. It is a 3-day music fest overflowing with epic Metal Bands. What all bands are participating? For starters, two of my favourite bands are coming together:…

Nothing else matters..but the violin solo does!

Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters is one song that ever Metal lover dreams attending live, and also dreams of covering. And this time Indians have nailed it. Presenting the awesome Metallica cover by Thaikkudam Bridge, a band from Kochi, India. The vocalist has done a great job, and so has every other band member, but what…

No time for Time II, Wintersun

Though my posts have been sporadic, but I never stopped reading about musicians or music.  This post is about Wintersun, as I had mentioned before, one of my fav bands (don’t remember? read here: http://bit.ly/1mlyXYE ). Much to the Wintersun fans’ expectations (which were pretty high, considering how awesome Time I was), Time II will not be…

Album Review- Seventh Swamphony

This post is about two things: The pleasure of owning a cd of your favourite band, and the happiness when all the songs blow your mind equally. Day before yesterday, my wish of owning an original Kalmah cd came true. (Thanks to my super awesome friend: Saurav who gifted it to me). Since it is…

Instrumental tracks that will ease your soul

When metal bands decide to go instrumental, they create music that is unparalleled to any every created.   Below are my all time favourite instrumental tracks that just take me to another level of calmness and peace. No lyrics, plain melodic music, that will enlighten your senses and make the world around you look a…

Winter is coming!

No, this is not another post about The Game of Thrones. What I am going to talk about here is this incredibly, outrageously, maddeningly, overpoweringly amazing band from Finland (yet again). Finland has the most incredible set of Metal bands.  And the one in discussion today is Wintersun. Another set of genius composers. Band Members:…

Know your Horns

Everybody flashes them, some overuse, and some misuse them. But how many of us really know, why we use them? I am not going to research over it, because I am convinced (by intuition, and general observation)  that hardly a few know of the story behind the use of Horns. So here is how it…

The Metal-ism Checklist

Though I always believe that one should dress awfully different for a Metal Gig, so that the Gods are able to differentiate you in the crowd, but still discussing about a few must haves for a Gig won’t do any harm. So here is it, (I have tried to create an infographic using info.gram) The…

New Discovery- Epic Band

I have been swamped by work lately, but that has not separated me from my music. Infact, I was fortunate enough to discover a new Melodic Death Metal Band, from the land of metal music- Finland. The band is- Omnium Gatherum, and in one word it is- EPIC. Drums, Guitars, Vocals, Keys, bass, all are…

Folks Speak (Part 5 of 5)

After what seemed like eternity, we have finally been able to put down the last interactive session of Folks Speak. Blame it on me, or my counterpart here, Mr. Karan, I was beginning to think that this day would never come. Well enough of talking about the delay, let me take the pleasure to Introduce…
