Metal Scene Growing in India

“The winds of change have been blowing furiously over [Dehli],” writes Express India’s Pallavi Jassi — but he’s specifically referring to India’s music scene as a hotspot for metal acts. With a much wider demographic, which now reaches between 13 and 35 years old, considered as the main meat of India’s growing metal consciousness, the genre is thriving in the far Eastern country. Now two years old, January’s Eastwind Festival is its strongest celebration of metal, and has billed local bands alongside Iron Maiden, Sepultura, Megadeth and Opeth. Later this month, the more commercial Great Indian Rock Festival is coming up and bringing in Norwegian and American metal bands.

The featured article from Express India also talks to Reuben Bhattacharya, bassist of city-based metal band Undying Inc: “Five years ago when our band was formed, we would get five shows a year, today we get five shows a month.” There are also efforts to showcase Indian talent to European industry heads. It’ll be no time before the rest of the world is exposed to the raw talent from the crowded streets of Dehli.
