BIOGRAPHY ::

This White / Progressive Metal group started off with a mission to salvage original music… But now is turning towards spreading positive messages through the power of music! This is no cover band but sheer originals…

They thrive on variation. “We get bored of doing the same thing over and over again”. Each song needs to sound different. They do not want to evolve a signature style and get tied down by it. They want to spread their wings and experiment with everything to rock the world! They want to be 10-bands-in-1!!!

Their undaunted spirit continues to dedicate itself to Original Compositions and experiment with various musical genres & styles under rock & metal.

The new & permanent White Metal line up has released a single “Miracle By Faith” on India’s first ever Online Gospel compilation called Think Again (http://www.greenozone.com/album.htm) & the 2-track EP called Save Our Nation on 30 Apr 2006. They are aiming at releasing their debut album by August/September 2006 and undertake tours for its promotion.

Before dedicating itself to the mission to serve The Lord through music and beyond, TSC was a secular band. The band is also known for their former signature songs – Rest In Peace (ennui.BOMB’s We are The Scene Vol. II), Living On (ennui.BOMB’s We are The Scene Vol. I) and Schizophrenia

They are setting up a Charitable Trust to serve the society for various ailments like poverty, drug addiction and schizophrenia. The proceeds from their album sales and concerts would be going towards this cause.

“We owe to God for keeping the dream alive, after numerous upheavals in the band and in personal lives… over the time…”

The band believes in its moto –
Pray, Believe and Do your Best
To The Almighty, Leave the Rest…

Blackholetheory(Pune)

November 13, 2007

Genre :: Death Metal

Meaning :: The name Blackhole Theory was decided because of the mysterious background of the concept of the Black Hole and the guys believing that the music they create represents this mystery.

Biography ::

The inception of the band was in jan 2002 when Prithwiraj and Snehdeep who had been friends for a while and both of whom had a budding interest and talent in music decided to get together and form a force playing only its most extreme form. There arose the problem of finding the rest of the lineup. After repeated changes they bumped into Naveen who without any formal training and on an off hand practice seemed to show more talent towards relentlessly beating the drums (hence the name relentless beater) than both Prithwiraj and Snehdeep expected. So finally without further ado Naveen joined the bandwagon and started playing with the guys. The name Blackhole Theory was decided because of the mysterious background of the concept of the black hole and the guys believing that the music they create represents this mystery.

Later one of the guitarists had to depart from the band due to personal reasons but within a short span of time after his departure they stumbled upon Kuber as their next shredder.

The band firmly believes in making original music and has composed 8 brutal tracks. One of these tracks has been featured in a release called “resurrection” which is a compilation of 12 of the most extreme metal acts in India. Starting slowly they climbed up the popularity ladder and their originals slowly began gaining recognition. They have been a part of 30 gigs so far some of the big ones include IIT Mumbai, Pune rock fest, jumpstart 2005, and Subculture.2005.

So far some of the big ones include IIT Mumbai, Pune Rock Fest, Jumpstart 2005, Subculture 2005, RAIT 2007 and Rainfest 2007(Shillong). Blackhole Theory is heavily influenced by bands like Dimmu Borgir, Deicide, Cannibal Corpse, Old Man’s Child, Satyricon, Opeth , Death and the kind.

The blend of our talents is now called BlackHole Theory, a name we cooked up. It defines us, we are unexplained and never fail to surprise each other, just like the black hole, full of mystries and surprises.
