BIOGRAPHY ::

What do you get when you put a drummer with heavy metal roots, a guitarist with classic rock roots, a bassist crazy about Jazz and a very ‘volatile’ vocalist, in one band? JUNKYARD GROOVE This band has carved its own unique niche in the Indian rock scene, fusing rock with funk to give an uplifting style that reaches out to all ages; wowing the audience with a tight, high energy, flawless, musical stage performance. Ever since its conception in the summer of 2005, Junkyard Groove was nothing but your silly sense of humour trying to be creative and once it got rolling there was really nothing anybody wanted to do in terms of changing direction or slowing down the pace of things. With an inspirational songwriter in Ameeth and equally brilliant musicians in Jerry, Sid and Craig the band came up with some “wicked” compositions with truckloads of promise. The competition held at Le Royal meridian Chennai saw the band land up in second place, bagging the best guitarist award and probably the best verbally outrageous band award, if ever one existed. From there on the band tasted sweet victory at JIPMER winning best band, vocalist, guitarist, drummer and own composition and the second best bassist and rhythm in SPANDAN 2005. Next stop was one of the bands most memorable gigs at NLS’ Strawberry Fields, an extremely excellent experience, with loads of love and respect to all the people who made it feel like home. Madras Christian College came next and that saw very similar results with best band and best drummer. But the main highlight of the evening was, that from the previous show in Bangalore (NLS Strawberry Fields) the band grew a small fan base which resulted in the audience randomly requesting for their songs. Next up, home town competition at IIT Madras was great fun. The band made it through to the finals and walked away with best guitarist and a fancy Fender as a prize. Junkyard Groove came back to their favourite haunt JIPMER to perform at the SPANDAN 2006 pro show. A kick-ass performance at SHAMAL, Dubai saw them emerge victorious and landed them a 3 year recording contract with Creative Kingdom Records, USA. The band was the opening act at Dubai’s Desert Rock Festival 2007 opening for the likes of IRON MAIDEN, INCUBUS and ROBERT PLANT.

Gruesome Malady(Bangalore)

GENRE :: Horror / Gore-Grind

BAND MEMBERS ::

Vikram Bhat – skull-fucking blasts, blood-spewing gurgles;

Jimmy Palkhivala – chainsaw genocide, Proctological rumbling, phlegm-drenched regurgitation.

BIOGRAPHY ::

GRUESOME MALADY… the most bowel-churning, bile spewing, indescribably sickening horror/gore-grind project ever to raise its hideously deformed head in the country of India. GRUESOME MALADY was formed in 1999 as a medium to vent forth vomit-inducing art, repulsively created by Vikram Bhat (drums, vocals) and Jimmy Palkhivala (guitar, bass, vocals). Both were originally members of now kult doom/death band, Dying Embrace. They started to create GRUESOME MALADY for the sole purpose of satiating their most sickening, morbid desires. Revelling in the hideous depths of human degradation, be it the simple pleasures of violent psycho-sexual depravity, pustule infested gore-worship, extreme morbid sadism or absurdly bizarre fetishism, GRUESOME MALADY feature awesome horror/porn intro’s, crushing, tortured riffs & leads, relentless scrotal-bludgeoning hyper-blasts, and sick, vomit-gurgling vocals. Easily capable of ravaging and sodomising the senses in a merciless onslaught of mindless intensity, the band gained infamy quickly! The ultra-deranged debut CD Infected With Virulent Seed was released on Bizarre Leprous Productions in 2003. A split CD with female gore-grind succubi MORTUARY HACKING SESSION followed on Last House On The Right / Vomit Noise Productions in 2004. A split CD with Polish gore freaks PATOLOGICUM on Fat Ass Records was released in late 2005. The band are currently working on new material including several tracks for the upcoming Real Men Watch Porn! 20 Way Split CD on LxHxOxTxRx.

INFLUENCES ::

GRUESOME MALADY is influenced by the most brutal grind outfits on the planet including IMPETIGO, LYMPHATIC PHLEGM, MORTICIAN, FECULENT GORETOMB, NEURO-VISCERAL EXHUMATION, WARSORE, DECOMPOSING SERENITY, MORTUARY HACKING SESSION, GUT, REEK OF SHITS, TUMOUR, MUCUPURULENT, MINCING FURY + GUTTERAL CLAMOUR OF QUEER DECAY, and TU CARNE.
