Bangalore Open Air – Metal Nights Feat. Immolation at Fandom

Bangalore Open Air has long been the biggest Rock & Heavy Metal festival in India. The festival saw its inception 6 years ago and has gone from strength to strength in every subsequent year, garnering rock fans from all over the country while simultaneously building a world-class reputation for itself. The festival is powered by Wacken Open Air (Germany), which is the largest heavy metal festival in the world.

★ Immolation
Immolation was born from the ashes of Rigor Mortis (NY), a band formed in May 1986 by Andrew Sakowicz (bass guitar, vocals) Dave Wilkinson (drums), and Robert Vigna (guitar). After recording the ‘Decomposed” and Warriors of Doom demos, Sakowicz left the band in early 1988 and was replaced by Ross Dolan, and the band’s name was changed to Immolation. The new lineup put out two studio demos, in 1988 and 1989, and gained a worldwide following in the underground death metal scene. Immolation signed a record deal with Roadrunner Records and released their debut album Dawn of Possession in 1991.

After leaving Roadrunner, the band released “Stepping on Angels,” a compilation of demo releases and live tracks. In 1995 the band was signed by Metal Blade Records and released three albums: Here in After, Failures for Gods, and Close to a World Below. After their second album, drummer Craig Smilowski left the band and was replaced by Alex Hernandez. Their next three albums, Unholy Cult, Harnessing Ruin, and Shadows in the Light were released by French label Listenable Records and Century Media in the US.

★ Speedtrip

Speedtrip is a 5 piece heavy metal outfit based out of Bangalore, The band draws its inspiration from bands like Motorhead, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden Judas Priest, Slayer, Exodus, Metallica, Sodom, Coroner among others. The band emphasises on a traditional heavy metal sound with powerful drum patterns, screaming vocals and very strong guitar and bass lines. Speedtrip has been around from 2016 and has been active in the local metal scene since. The band was one of the opening acts for Bangalore Open Air 2017, where Nile and Coroner were the headlining acts. The band is well known for its loud and tight live performances. Speedtrip’s debut album Trapped In A Maze was released on July 1, 2017, drawing many positive reviews from metal webzines and fans around the world. Speedtrip is currently writing material for their next album, which is due for release in 2020.

★ Moral Putrefaction
Moral Putrefaction is a Death Metal band from Chennai. Formed in 2015, the band’s lyrics focus on societal issues and the degradation of human moralities. The band’s sound is influenced by bands like Bloodbath, Immolation, Vomitory, Cannibal Corpse, Carcass etc.

Some of Moral Putrefaction’s notable feats include being a supporting act for the Australian Technical Death Metal band Psycroptic in Chennai when the band toured India in August 2017, and being a part of the Trendslaughter Fest 2018 with a monstrous lineup consisting of Draconis Infernum from Singapore and Cult of Fire from Czech Republic.

★ Aempyrean
Clawing their way through the Indian underground, AEMPYREAN blasts forth with a whirlwind of fire and brimstone. The horde was conceptualized in early 2015 by BR (ex-Witchgoat, ex-Culminant) and Ajay N (Dhwesha). Sailesh K and Clint SS joined soon after and Avi S completed the lineup in June 2015.

Influenced by ’80s and early ’90s Thrash and Death Metal processed through early Black metal sensibilities, AEMPYREAN intend to deliver nothing short of loud, savage and profane metal. The band was signed by Cyclopean Eye Productions in 2017, and their debut EP, “Fireborn” was released domestically in August 2018 and worldwide in December 2018 to good reviews globally.

★ Grossty
Indian grindcore legends Grossty have been shocking the nation ever since their inception. From their vulgar pelvic thrusts on stage to their audacious themes they have created a niche for themselves in the Grindcore scene worldwide. They have toured extensively across the indian subcontinent spreading their vile brand of grindcore. Currently working on their second full length, they promise to spread more nastiness.
