This band has a palette that is unmistakably a smorgasbord of flavors and variables that brings out great depth and solid power within their music. Gormathon with their latest album ‘Following the Beast’ is a jammed mix of elements from a various number of bands that could be noticed while cycling through their songs. It’s as if the bands Tyr, Amon Amarth, Judas Priest, Suidakra and Holy Grail played multiple sections one by one and at varying intervals and sometimes even melding with the mix to create an authentic and original sound that echoes through like thunder in a storm, slow paced and powerful music pushed forth out in the open.
Trinergic, the melodic death metal band from Mumbai (India) which has been making waves all over the Indian Metal scene with its melodic compositions and fiery live performances, recently launched a countdown on their Facebook page which hinted at a “Big Announcement” to be made around the weekend.

The Egyptian mythology has served as an inspiration to l0ads of musicians over the years. And yes, there are more Egyptian flavored metal musicians out there other than just Nile. If the name does not make it blatantly clear to you, Horus is one such band that takes its musical inspiration from the land of the pharaohs. This Romanian outfit started out very recently and their style of music sits well under the tag of death metal and they carry just the right amount of melody to prefix the tag with “melodic”. ‘Declaration of War’ is the band’s debut EP and it was released in 2013.
Trinergic may the new kid on the block when it comes to the Mumbai metal scene. But the band has been making big waves by playing various different competitions and have already shared stage with some of the big names in the Mumbai scene. Now the band is getting ready to hit the stage once again this weekend at a new venue (Goa Potuguesa) along with Albatross, Orion, Wrath, Narkasur, Orcus and Dionysian.
