Default The Indian Rock Music Thread

I am not too good with Indian rock bands, but stumbled upon quite a few off late and found some them very catchy and some even matches up with the world standards. Can we have some good ones aboard?

Kickin' off with Aahatein by Agnee,


Couldn't find a thread on the topic. Please direct the post to that thread if any exist. Thanks

I love "it's raining now" by Dream Out Loud.



And call my taste commercialised, but I'm a huge fan of the "Rock On" album. Every song is A+

My favorite is But it Rained by Parikrama, one of the best song by an Indian Rock Band..
Here is the video,

EDIT: Found the official one, better quality audio.

Mind you, these songs were recorded ~20 years back!

Music videos from legendary band (13 AD) in India's rock music history!



I, for one, consider the song, Ground Zero to be the best song by any Indian Band.

I heard Shruti Hassan was going to launch a rock album (as the lead vocal). Any news on that?

Default Attempt at Stop motion video for my Band's music

Hey Folks, last week my bandmates and I made a video to promote our original music. We took tons of pictures and made it into a stop motion video, after applying some after effects on the pics. Here's the final video:


We used a simple Canon SX120IS camera, loaded with CHDK firmware and an intervalometer script, that takes pics every 'x' seconds until you interrupt it.

We were able to finish the shooting in 5 hours.

We also used a software called JellyCam to figure out the FPS required for the required tempo of the song and used that frame rate in virtualdub to save the images as a movie file. Then finally used a video editor to mix the video and audio. Hope you like it!

Watched Indus Creed open for Santana at Bangalore on 26th October. I've been a fan of IC for a while now, but sadly they sounded a bit out of it that day. The energy that their music is full of, and that they had on stage previously was missing. Growing old maybe?

Any Motherjane fans in the house? Rather, any Motherjane fans with opinions on Baiju's exit, and his replacement?

Cheers,
Rahul

Still remember the day i stumbled upon a 13AD tape at my cousin's place...man oh man was i ever surprised to listen to ground zero. Sounds cheesy now sure but with the sort of production they would have had at that time it was amazing.

Indus Creed's Trapped still pops up in my playlist once in a while.

Millenium from Bangalore is another favorite but that would be metal and that said are we including Indian Metal bands also in here?

Watched Motherjane thrice. Once in Bangalore at some medical college, then in NIT, Kozhikode and then finally in Trivandrum. He nailed Hallowed Be Thy Name pretty well i must say.

Avial is fun, Down Troddence [Shiva] was intense. RSJ magazine brings out nice compilations of Indian Rock once in a while along with their mags. Think its called Levi's Great Indian Rock or something.

Every couple of days I listen to mindstreet, and remember those 5 years pleasurably spent in Bangalore.



This version is a little different from the version on the record.
Motherjane along with Zero, had the musicality to lead the Indian rock bandwagon.

Hey, I still listen to 13AD, cheesy as they may sound!
Would you happen to have any Millenium recordings? I've been looking high and low! If anyone has their recordings, please make yourself known!!

Yes, lets include metal bands too, they need their share of recognition man!

The medical college you mentioned is St. John's. A lot of great bands have played at their cultural fest Autumn Muse (Avial & Motherjane multiple times, Malayali connection you see!) thouth the last time I saw Avial there, they were quite a letdown.
I remember another called Gravy Train (Bangalore I guess)from I think the late 90s who played at John's. Anyone hear of them?

Cheers,
Rahul

I still do as well. Ground Zero is too epic a song not to have in my playlist. Just wish they could do a remaster and bring in some heavier guitars into that track. Ah well

My cousin in Bangalore from whom i got to listen to 13AD still has the tape of Millenium as well. Need to "borrow" that from him.

And St.John's yes. That's the college. I think the one time i went there Pentagram also played. Man talking about Pentagram does anyone have their earlier stuff before they went all weird with industrial/techno sounds? Think there was a song called one eyed man or something even had a video i think.

2yrs in Bangalore were so much fun. Those Independence Day rock concerts were awesome. Remember being blown away by Myndsnare and a previously unknown band called "Shrapnel". Bought both of their cds that night. Shrapnel's song was awesome:

"Death beckons you,
In the final few minutes
You want to escape
But your soul's just not in it

My desire grows
As i sense your fear
The end of your time
Is the reason i'm here"!

Listening to that at some God forsaken hour was just too good an experience.

Thermal and a quarter had a few fans among friends there but i could not get into it.

And been planning to buy the albums from Kryptos but never got around to it. Guess its high time i did.

Demonic Resurrection, i gave a wide berth. Never could get into extreme black metal.

Bhoomi was another Bangalore metal band which sounded real good on stage. Could not find more music from them.

Macha, nostalgia isn't good on a Wednesday man! I just remembered the FreedomJam at The Club on Mysore Road! And the one at Palace Grounds! Oh man, what shows!!!

Please do get the Millenium tape. I am first in line if you make a copy.

Cheers,
Rahul
