BIOGRAPHY ::

Battalions actually started as a Christian Worship Team in Sept 2004 by Godwin (Vocalist), Joshua (Guitars) and Paul (our Ex- Drummer). Very soon joined by Jacob (Bass) and Justin (keys). Performed in many Churches and worship centres. Paul had to leave to New Zealand for his Studies in March – 2006. This was the time when John Caleb joined in as the new drummer and the band decided to play heavier and challenging kind of music, the beautiful genre called Metal. The Band started doing Originals and the lyric for the first song Believe and Receive was written by John. But sadly John was with them for a very short time and had to leave the band for personal reasons. Then Vishal joined the band as the drummer and he set in the band very quickly. This proved to be the golden period of the band. The different influences the band members have has helped them to work together and form a unique sound. The band performed at many places and won many competitions with this line up. Now Vineeth has joined the band as the new drummer after Vishal had to leave the band for his work.

Other than doing shows at concerts and in competitions the band also still plays in Churches, Schools and orphanages. The Band concentrates on doing Originals and the lyrics is purely based on our Christian faith and values.

BIOGRAPHY ::

The band originally started in early 1998, comprising of only three members Suren, Biren, and Rishi. After the untimely and tragic death of Biren the band was unspoken for few years and again started with a new line up in 2002, Ritesh (now in steam Injuns), Vishal, and Kiran. There first show with Venstrings in 2002 left a mark in Darjeeling. After this Vishal and Ritesh moved to Katmandu and once again they left a vacant place which was later filled up by two new members, Dipendra on vocals and Vashkar on guitar. This was so to call the final line up for the coming hardship in Mary Jane�s record. With this new line up Mary Jane won and lost many rock contest and visited places mesmerizing people with their head banging numbers, the basically covered numbers from Metallica, Megadeth, Pantera, Judas Priest etc. all this made them a seasoned rockers.

After their last outing, Rock yatra (September 2005). Guys decided to take a break, Rishi continued grinding his axe with Grungy Morphins, Suren and Vashkar was busy with their life and duties of life. And only members keeping the spirit of Mary Jane alive were Kiran and Dipendra, who are on the verge of releasing two new albums this year (2006/2007) a Nepali and an English album. It will be a new sound in the hills of Darjeeling, it�s a progressive metal albums were all the songs are composed and written by Kiran and Dipendra with the help of few friends and well wishers like Bishal (ex mantra�s drummer), Grungy Morphins (Hozo), and Mr. Mohan Dixit (former FORBIDDEN FRUIT bass player) a well known recordist.

And for the few and loyal fans they have recently come up with an EP album �THEY FLY� comprising of five songs, which they think it will work as a starter before the big feast.
Now playing under the Tag Janes Clan mind storm. based in darjeeling and looking for a break through.

And they hope the legacy of Mary Jane goes on forever in the hearts of true music lovers���..
