GENRE :: Rock

BAND MEMBERS ::
Suhail Yusuf Khan – Sarangi

Gaurav Chintamani – Guitar

Arpan Guha Thakurta – Bass

Akshay Raheja – Effects and Electronics

BIOGRAPHY :: 

Formed in January 2004, Trademark was a blues-rock trio in its first form. The band performed at various places in Delhi and also at Shimla, Leh (World Music Festival, 2004) and Shillong (Bob Dylan Brithday Celebrations, 2005). The Band reformed its line up in September 2005 and is now a quintet.

In its new form, Trademark’s music has emerged as an aggressive blend of Indian classical, funk, blues and jazz. Focusing on playing mainly original music, the bands compositions are largely based on Indian raaga’s with leanings into jazz and blues. Improvisation and extended jams are also a prominent feature of the music with elements of electronic music.

The bands approach to performance and composition is an attempt to establish what they would like to be called as the ‘Trademark Sound’, an identifiable and unique sound, which is a disctinctive balance of the traditional and modern approaches towards arrangement, execution and presentation of the bands music.

Overdose(Delhi)

November 24, 2007

GENRE :: Metal

BAND MEMBERS ::

Ahmer – Lead Vocals, Lead/Rhythm Guitar
Krishna – Lead/Rhythm Guitar
Nishant – Bass Guitar, backing vocals
Guru – Drums

BIOGRAPHY ::

We basically try and focus on our individual and collective abilities and common influences, and try to churn out our own breed of metal (which has flavors of various forms of metal and rock) resulting in the Thrash/old school sound of our band. We give a lot of importance to writing and putting together original music. To us, it holds a lot more importance than being a cover based band, with no creativity.
The band and its music is influenced by rock/metal bands such as Megadeth, Dream Theater, Motorhead, Black Sabbath, Metallica, Pantera, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Sepultura, and the likes; as well as few recent bands such as Trivium, Machine head, etc.
Music to us is more than just a hobby or an art which we have chosen to pursue. Over the years, music has become the central activity around which we all revolve. We derive inspiration from a lot of styles and disciplines of music such as Heavy Metal, Thrash, Metal-core, Blues, Classical etc, and apply it to the musical direction toward which the band and its music is headed.

GENRE :: Metal/Hardcore

BAND MEMBERS ::

Shashank (Vocals)
Ankur (Rhythm Guitar)

Vedant (Lead Guitar)
Vicky (Bass Guitar)
Punti(Drums)

BIOGRAPHY ::

Coming across the right musicians to jam with can be a nightmare.

Hollow Caust, earlier named Psychotrope, is a five piece outfit.

The band had a tough time getting the line up ready. Aman(Ex-vocals) and Vedant(Lead Guitar) were looking for dedicated musicians to hook up with.

Enter Vicky(Bass) and Punti(Drums). It was unbelievable. The band was cracking numbers at a phenomenal rate. Formed in the month of June,2005….With a common musical taste, good attitude, and a vision to make it big, Hollow Caust is a heady cocktail. They realised that there was a sense of emptyness which was to be filled with the brand new Ibanez of Ankur(Rhythm Guitar).
But due to some problems Aman left the band after sometime n then came Shashank (Vocals) to fill the void. And now Hollow Caust is ready to KILL you all ..

Musical influences include Sepultura, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Arch Enemy, Children Of Bodom, Slayer, Pantera, Death, Dream Theatre and many more. However, the band is working on originals as well as covers, and looking to cut an album soon.

November 24, 2007

GENRE :: Alt Rock

BAND MEMBERS ::

Dhaval – Vocals
Gaurav – Guitar
Somnath – Guitar
Anish – Bass
Akshat – Drums

BIOGRAPHY ::

Descant began in 2003 as many a band begin, as an accoustic act with guitarist Gaurav and bassist Anish. After getting tired of playing just with each other and on accoustic’s they finally decided to take it to the next level and the search for other band members began.
They found Anand, the first vocalist for the band, through common friends and he had the same ideas about music as them.The search for a lead guitarist was going nowhere til they met Somnath, who was a childhood friend of gaurav, but the two had’nt been in touch for several years. After a few meetings and lots of random conversation, gaurav mentioned that he palyed the guitar and was looking for a lead in this project he wanted to start. To his amazement Somnath made him aware of the fact that he infact had been playing guitar all thee years that they had lost touch and they went on to jam and it all just fit. J
Just before IIT 2004 the search for a drummer led them to Akshat who’d played for a metal band before and finally the lineup was complete. Now Descant has a new Voice, that being Dhawal who brings a lot of energy and fun onstage and off(even when he’s sober)
Having released their debut EP called Mad Ambition with 5 original tracks, Descant has gone on to rock every possible venue in delhi and played at GIR X. The focus of the band has always been original music and has an alternative sound.
