‘Irish Coffee’ – Solder (Fan Video)

December 22, 2009

What every Band should wish for is … to have a fan like Ebey Joseph. As I have always believed, fans are like mini-gods..  and what can be more wonderful when one of these mini gods come up with a ‘Fan Video’?.  Ebey Joseph has made a beautiful fan video (courtesy of running men from Hollywood 😛 ) for Bangalore’s up coming rock act Solder‘s debut single ‘Irish Coffee’. Personally ‘Irish Coffee’ is one of my current favourite songs.. although the song needs to be ‘soldered’  at some lose ends, its a beautiful song. Do watch it… it’s nice ! Download Mp3  from Here .

‘My Dark Symphony-1833AD’ Arriving Soon in 2010

December 20, 2009

By: Jitesh Rajan .

Black metal anyone?

During the razz days during the mid 2000 there used to be a handful of black metal acts in Mumbai which regularly used to play live. Lack of originality ultimately led to their demise.

After giving a listen to 1833 Ad’s tracks on their myspace & reverbnation link from their forthcoming album “My Dark Symphony”, one can safely say they have experimented with their own brand of black metal. Melodic but at the same time brutal makes this Delhi metal outfit stand out from its counterparts in the Indian metal scene.

1833 AD

Originally founded by vocalist Nishant Abraham and bassist Sushmit Mazumdar in 2004, 1833 AD has been playing its own brand of Black Metal ever since. Dark riff oriented intros prepare you for the mayhem thereafter. With a distinctive vocal style, Nishant stamps his unique rasped vocal style to the band’s compositions. Rahul’s dark & grim melodic riffing adds a new dimension to the brutality of 1833AD’s music.I was most impressed by Sushmit’s bass work on tracks like “Empty shrine” & “Inheritance evil”. One of the best I have heard from bass players around in the Indian metal scene. With blast beats & double bass in abundance Shashank takes it up a level behind the kit. Their music can be best described as a fresh approach towards the black metal genre with some intricate musicianship.

With things heating up in the growing metal scene in our country, 1833 AD is most definitely the band look out for in the coming year.” My Dark Symphony” comes out mid 2010

When 200,000 hits old… Say Thank You !

December 18, 2009

The last thank you note was not long ago, In August this year I wrote a thank you note upon completing 100,000 hits on this blog website. It took exactly a year to do that, Well !! as they say ‘your first million lakh is the toughest’, It didn’t take much time to gather the second lakh. Here we are 200,000 hits old, and exuberant and hungry for Indian Rock more than ever. Looking back what a year that was 2009 , We are blessed to cover one magnificent, probably the best year in the history of Indian Rock. Loads of new releases this year and we covered most of them. Awesome interviews, gig reviews, gig alerts and most of all made lots of new friends who shared the same passion as I did. If I can put it in simple words Thank you! Yes You, Thank You for reading my error ridden posts, grammatical fvckups and what not. It’s been a fun ride and will continue to be so as long as you keep coming back.

Special Thank you to my son for not unplugging the modem when it mattered the most, and thank you to my wife for her unconditional support. Thank you for the sweetest gesture of interviewing me (who’d have thunk that 😛 ).

Finally Thanks to Jitesh Rajan, Neerav Gupta, Ritesh Mayekar, Itihas Shetty, Sridhar for their support and contribution with articles, and……….  Ashwin Sharma, what Can i say about this guy? He is the living rock Wikipedia, with out him things wouldn’t have been this crazy.. Thank You Ashwin.
