Review: Indigo Children’s new singles

Sep 14, 2012

Indigo Children’s two released singles “Jesus was a mushroom” and “Why don’t you follow me down” indeed have set a sublime benchmark for future efforts to be measured by in terms of musical depth with and easy-to-relate lyrical output. “Jesus was a mushroom” kick starts with some stirring bass-lines and apparently seems to inform listeners as to...

Song Review: The pretentious and the deceived – Plague Throat

Song Review: The pretentious and the deceived – Plague Throat

Aug 11, 2012

Furious, pummeling, paint splattered-indiscriminately-on-the-walls song structure, this death/grind mean machine known as Plague Throat has raised a shovel at producing classy metal tunes aimed squarely at the head of spazz-out metal. The fast riffs, the little breakdowns, the assaulting blast beats and then there’s the rasping vocal works. “The pretentious...

Song Review: Item Song – Ganesh Talkies

Song Review: Item Song – Ganesh Talkies

Aug 6, 2012

This prime player in the Bolly-Rock arena known as Ganesh Talkies has a lot to offer to the nation’s dancefloors, if this single is an indication. This track combines the rhythmic power of classic groove ridden bass lines with a delicate bluesy tinged strummed out with convincing slide-guitar and an impressive soul to boot. The marriage between the clever...

Song Review: Flicker – Noiseware

Aug 5, 2012

Noiseware are an impressive outfit before you’ve even considered their music. Had this new single “Flicker” been anything but top notch, it would have come as a great shock. More shocking still, though, is how Noiseware not only manage to be so inconsistently awesome. But also impressively up the ante with each release, pleasingly far from customary, this...

Song Review: Neron – Kshya Kramasha

Jul 10, 2012

Whoever said that silence is golden was clearly a humongous douche. Kshya Kramasha or rather when translated to English means (Destruction Continues) know what’s what, and their single Neron delivers a gloriously skuzzy noise by the bucketload. Neron is also a monster second helping of bulldozing drums, razor sharp cutting riffs, crushing breakdowns and...

Song Review: Breathe in a new life – Aberrant

Jun 3, 2012

Normally, when 5 members of 5 different bands decide to form a band, the results are somewhat more than spectacular ain’t it? Yeah it is and playing fair in a game as such, is none other than Shilong’s very own super metal group ABERRANT. The New Breed of Prog tech metal actually bucks that trend and proves it through very first single. With a bit of a...

Song Review: Fading Out – When Everything Falls Apart

Song Review: Fading Out – When Everything Falls Apart

Apr 17, 2012

Debut demo singles are tough to get right, and it’s pretty rare that they really wow a potential audience. When Everything Falls Apart (W.E.F.A) – “Fading Out”  (listen here) does not buck the trend much, showing off a decent amount of skill but also showing an equal amount of missed opportunity. The music manages to hit the right blend of melodic...

Song Review: Existence – Still Status

Apr 16, 2012

Underground, Shillong-based act STILL STATUS had just released a single – “existence” (listen here) a sound crafted by weaving together the fringes of several modern metal styles, resulting in an extreme and wild ride that gives the bigger brand of hardcore slab. Mixed and produced none other than, Plague Throat’s front- man Nangsan Lyngwa, this...
